Nvidia expands robotics platform to ‘meet the rise of generative AI’

Powerful generative AI models and cloud-native APIs and microservices are coming to the edge, according to Nvidia

Generative AI is bringing the power of transformer models and large language models to virtually every industry. That reach now includes areas that touch edge, robotics and logistics systems: defect detection, real-time asset tracking, autonomous planning and navigation, human-robot interactions and more.

Nvidia has rolled out “major expansions” to two frameworks on the Nvidia Jetson platform for edge AI and robotics: the Nvidia Isaac ROS robotics framework has entered general availability, and the Nvidia Metropolis expansion on Jetson is coming next.

To accelerate AI application development and deployments at the edge, Nvidia has also created a Jetson Generative AI Lab for developers to use with the latest open-source generative AI models. More
