Apple just scooped up an artificial intelligence expert from NVIDIA

Even though Apple has yet to officially confirm that its working on its own all-electric, semi-autonomous car, we’re all about 99.99% certain that the company is doing exactly that. Apple has been poaching engineers left and right in recent months, all for a secret project that we all know is the so-called Apple Car. The latest such engineer is Jonathan Cohen, who used to be the director of deep learning at NVIDIA, which itself has been pushing into the world of smart cars.

Rumors of Apple working on its own self-driving car resurfaced after a report revealed that the company poached an artificial intelligence expert from Nvidia. The employee that Apple hired is Jonathan Cohen, who was previously the director of deep learning for Nvidia. Deep learning is an artificial intelligence branch that is regarded highly in tech companies, as it is able to teach computers on how to analyze process the contained patterns within large amounts of visual data. Specifically, Cohen led the Deep Learning Software program for Nvidia, wherein he was overseeing the development of the GPU acceleration software technology and CUDA platform libraries. Nvidia is known as a chip manufacturer, creating graphics products that are used for video games, but it has also recently been pushing to enter the autonomous vehicles industry with its deep learning technology. The company is selling its graphic processing units, or GPUs, to automobile companies, which use the components to power the cameras and radar systems which allow self-driving cars to operate autonomously.
