Jetson - NVidia's Artificial Intelligence Platform

Author: Shazin Sadakath

Artificial Intelligence at the edge is getting good traction lately. Even Google launced a AI Platform named Coral about which we wrote in a previous post. Now Nvidia, world's leading Graphical Processing Unit maker has entered this domain with its Jetson AI Platform range. Adding to its repertoire, it has released Jetson Nano.

The Jetson Nano follows the Jetson TX1, the TX2, and the Jetson AGX Xavier which are industrial strength, capable AI platforms. With Jetson Nano the intention is to reach the masses and get the good community going.
