“NVIDIA has been inventing new ways to generate interactive graphics for 25 years, and this is the first time we can do so with a neural network. Neural networks – specifically generative models – will change how graphics are created. This will enable developers to create new scenes at a fraction of the traditional cost.”
The typical layperson won’t entirely understand its inner workings, or care. Gamers, VR fans, technophiles and Nvidia stock owners, on the other hand, will almost surely be impressed. Nvidia has developed a way to create an interactive virtual reality environment using real-world videos rather than creating that world with nothing but computer coding.
Nvidia’s bread and butter remains graphics cards, mostly for gaming, where it competes with (and dominates) Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). It’s also become a mainstay within the conventional, non-visual AI arena, building technology from the ground up with artificial intelligence developers in mind. Proper perspective is merited.
