Volkswagen is working with NVIDIA for its AI deep learning program
Volkswagen IT is collaborating with computing firm NVIDIA in a bid to develop and expand its advanced artificial intelligence systems with deep learning.
Specifically, the Volkswagen Data Lab is looking at using deep learning in corporate processes and mobility services, such as optimizing traffic flow and promoting positive and intelligent human-robot cooperation.
NVIDIA and Volkswagen will also be running a startup support program, with five new ideas joining later this year.
A "Summer of Code" camp will be featured in the coming months, where high-performing students who have qualifications in IT, mathematics or physics will be able to progress their deep learning knowledge in a robotics environment.
"Artificial intelligence is the key to the digital future of the Volkswagen Group," said Dr Martin Hofmann, CIO of the Volkswagen Group.
"Cooperation with NVIDIA will be a major step towards expanding our expert knowledge in developing and deploying high-performance AI systems."
Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, commented: "Thanks to AI, data centers are changing dramatically and enterprise computing is being reinvented."
"NVIDIA's deep learning solutions will hopefully enable Volkswagen to transform the enormous amounts of information in its data centers to valuable insight."
