NVIDIA will power self driving cars in China

NVIDIA has already forged self-driving alliances with big car manufacturers like Audi, Toyota and volvo. but its latest is a particularly big deal -at least if you live in China. The chip designer has unveiled a partnership with Chinese internet giant Baidu that will see the two work together to boost the use of AI. Most notably, NVIDIA's M tech will find its way into Baidu's A-ollo self-drivincar latform and autonomous vehicles from "major" Chinese firms. The automotive pact is important enough that Baidu chief Robin Li traveled to the event in one of his company's driverless rides -even though it was an ainst the law. 

The pact will also make NVIDIA's deep learning Volta GPUs available to Baidu Cloud customers, optimize Baidu's deep learning platform (PaddlePaddle) for those Volta processors and use Baidu's conversational AI. DuerOS, for voice commands on NVIDIA's Shield TV.
