Here’s what’s cooking inside Nvidia’s new AI robotics research lab in Seattle

When Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang interacted with a sensitive robotic hand at today's open house for his company's robotics research lab in Seattle, it was love at first touch. "It almost feels like a pet!" Huang said as he tickled the hand's fingers, causing them to retreat gently. "It's surprisingly therapeutic," he told the crowd around him. "Can I have one?" The robotic hand, which is programmed to avoid poking humans when they come too close, was just one of the machines on displ...

Nvidia CEO Trashes AMD's New GPU: 'The Performance Is Lousy'

Yesterday I spent two hours listening to the CEOs of rival companies talk trash about each other. It reminded me of my parents right after their divorce. Nvidia was shit talking AMD, and AMD politely responded with just enough bite for you to take notice.Read more...

Nvidia Is Finally Making Ray Tracing Graphics More Affordable With Its New RTX 2060 Card

Okay, you’ve probably heard of ray tracing right? When Nvidia announced its Turing GPU architecture last year, it couldn’t stop talking about ray tracing, which is some very cool technology that allows reflections and shadows in a digitally rendered environment (like a game) to behave as they would in real life. It’s…Read more...

HP's 65-inch HDR Gaming Monitor With G-Sync Looks Spectacular

A year ago, Nvidia announced plans for a series of gigantic monitors with G-sync built in, running on Android, and sporting a unique blend of features found on no other TV or computer monitor. The monitors, collectively called BFGDs (as in Big Fucking Gaming Displays), had a major issue in those early demos. They…Read more...

These face-generating systems are getting rather too creepily good for my liking

Machine learning models are getting quite good at generating realistic human faces — so good that I may never trust a machine, or human, to be real ever again. The new approach, from researchers at Nvidia, leapfrogs others by separating levels of detail in the faces and allowing them to be tweaked separately. The results are eerily realistic. The paper, published on preprint repository Arxiv (PDF), describes a new architecture for generating and blending images, particularly human faces, that “l...

Alienware's Thinnest Laptop Yet Balances Power, Price, and Portability Nicely

All of a sudden, it seems like almost no one is making laptops like Alienware makes laptops: beefy, loud, and fast. Most of the top gaming laptop makers have embraced the design style popularized by Razer and supported by Nvidia’s Max-Q design ethos: thin and sacrificing a little power for portability. But not…Read more...

The EU Copyright Directive, Starforce, Ray-Tracing and Apple: Best Gizmodo Posts of the Week

The European Union passed its disastrous Copyright Directive this week, including amended versions of its onerous Articles 11 and 13 (the so-called “link tax” and “upload filter,” respectively). There’s still time to make sure it never passes into law by defeating a final ratification vote in January, though given the …Read more...

Nvidia Is Using AI to Perfectly Fake Slo-Mo Videos

One of the hardest video effects to fake is slow motion. It requires software to stretch out a clip by creating hundreds of non-existent in-between frames, and the results are often stuttered and unconvincing. But taking advantage of the incredible image-processing potential of deep learning, Nvidia has come up with a…Read more...

Nvidia’s researchers teach a robot to perform simple tasks by observing a human

Industrial robots are typically all about repeating a well-defined task over and over again. Usually, that means performing those tasks a safe distance away from the fragile humans that programmed them. More and more, however, researchers are now thinking about how robots and humans can work in close proximity to humans and even learn from them. In part, that’s what Nvidia’s new robotics lab in Seattle focuses on and the company’s research team today presented some of its most recent work aro...
