Nvidia Corp. has introduced a Jetson AI platform designed as an entry-level option for students, educators and hobbyists to learn and teach artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
The 2 GB kit, which is priced at $59, is supported by the JetPack software development kit that includes a Nvidia container runtime and a full Linux software environment. This allows developers to package applications for Jetson with all its dependencies into a single container designed to work in any deployment.
The kit is powered by the Nvidia Cuda-X accelerated computing stack to create AI products in fields such as self-driving cars, industrial internet of things (IIoT), healthcare, smart cities and more.
The Jetson Nano 2 GB developer kit includes free online training and AI-certification programs with many open-source projects, how-tos and videos available from the Jetson community, Nvidia said.
Nvidia said while students and engineers are learning to program computers, soon these students will be interacting with robots and AI. The Jetson Nano is a starter AI computer to teach the skills needed for future engineering.
