NVIDIA's new TensorRT library is twice as fast at tasks like real-time object recognition & object detection compared to their GPU-optimized Deep Neural Network library from just earlier this year!
It just got a whole lot easier to add complex #AI and #deeplearning abilities to intelligent machines. All it takes is NVIDIA JetPack 2.3, available for free download today: #JetsonTX1

NVIDIA announced today a new product, the Jetson TX1 Development Kit. I received a model to review. Looky here: Overview The Jetson TX1 is the big brother to the Jetson TK1 Development Kit. The Jetson TX1 features a NVIDIA Maxwell GPU with 256 CUDA cores…

Jetson TK1 comes with Unity desktop on Ubuntu Linux, but there are many other options. We've posted new tutorials for installing Fedora, openSUSE and Arch Linux distributions (plus a minimal XFCE desktop) on Jetson TK1.

See the full list of Jetson TK1 distributions at ""

e-con Systems tested 7 of their USB 3.0 cameras on Jetson TK1, and posted a tutorial showing how to compile a custom Linux kernel that supports their cameras. (Or you can just use The Grinch kernel as shown at "")

Great application of a Jetson TK1: replacing a 65W 3KG laptop with a 9W Jetson TK1, making it much easier for blind people to carry!
#JetsonTK1 #Tegra #K1 #Linux

Initial port of our Transformative Reality (TR) code from a backtop system (Laptop in backpack) to the Nvidia Jetson devkit (Tegra K1).

Everything runs in real time (30FPS frame rate). Code was refactored and modified to run across 4 threads. Also uses a few GPU functions via OpenCV4Tegra.

Compared to our previous laptop system, power draw is down from 65W to 9W. Much more light weight, 3kg to 120g (sans battery).

Looks promising for our mobile Simulated Prosthetic Vision user trials and non-invasive assistive systems, like our ISWC work:
