Nvidia At CES 2017 Takes The Keynote Spotlight

On Wednesday night in Las Vegas, Nvidia took the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show, where it introduced the world to several new projects and products. The keynote spot is normally reserved for larger players in the market, but there is no denying that the company has had a very successful year. And from the looks of everything, it does not look like things will let up anytime soon.

Market Watch notes that before the actual event, the company had a press release that stated its CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang would "break news in some of the areas we're currently focused in: artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, virtual reality, and gaming." Indeed, the company has come leaps and bounds from its relatively humble beginnings. Instead of relying on other companies to create something, Nvidia is taking things into its own hands.

In terms of artificial intelligence, Forbes reports that Nvidia discussed Shield, its upcoming streaming media device. Shield will be powered by the relatively new Google Assistant, which is currently only limited to the Google Home and Pixel smartphones. "Jarvis is going to be realized. Mark Zuckerberg built his own Jarvis for his home," Huang said. "But I decided we should build it for all of you."

On the other hand, Nvidia also plans to expand the capability of its self-driving cars. Not only will these units be able to understand its outside environment, but they will also be able to see what is going on inside. Theoretically, the new technology will be able to see the driver's lips and eye movement, thereby understanding what is needed more. The installed AI will even have the capacity to understand if the driver is too angry to drive on the road.

GeForce Now was also discussed at CES 2017, which is a new cloud service from Nvidia. The service will allow games to run on the cloud as opposed to the standard computer. This way, players that do not have the resources or time to build or purchase a gaming PC will still have the option to play.
