Why Your Next Car May Have an AI Co-Pilot

Self-driving cars are meant to keep us safe. But even if you drive yourself, AI could be looking out for you. If configured to do so, AI, like a guardian angel, could even take over the car. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang showed how that could work last week, during his keynote at our GPU Technology Conference, in Silicon Valley. Our AI Co-Pilot technology uses sensor data from the cameras and microphone inside and outside a car to track the environment around the driver. When the AI notices a problem — perhaps that the driver is looking away from an approaching pedestrian — it could sound an alert.
