Jesse Clayton is the senior manager of product management for intelligent machines at NVIDIA. He has more than 20 years of experience in technology, spanning software, GPU computing, embedded systems, and aeronautics. His current focus is bringing advanced computer vision and deep learning solutions to autonomous machines and intelligent devices. Prior to joining NVIDIA in 2005, Jesse conducted NASA-funded research on aviation systems and algorithms. Jesse holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Artificial intelligence is impacting almost every part of the industrial and agricultural supply chain. From robots that quickly adapt to build new products, to automated vehicles that address last-mile challenges for product delivery, to UAVs that can automatically detect failing infrastructure, the world is transitioning from processes that are largely manual to ones that are largely automated. We'll discuss how AI and deep learning are enabling these advances. We'll also analyze a sampling of early successes across different applications. And finally we'll describe some of the remaining challenges to wide-scale deployment, and the work NVIDIA is doing to address those challenges via its Isaac initiative.
