Computer vision with the Tegra K1

Just unboxed this bad boy: the Nvidia Tegra TK1 dev kit:

It’s roughly a desktop-class GPU in a low-power (5W) mobile package. The next-gen iPad and iPhone will likely have similar GPUs (the PowerVR Rogue 6XT).

I’m excited to play with the latest Tegra. In recent years, deep convolutional neural networks have revolutionized computer vision. And they are very well-suited to acceleration with GPUs.

I wrote a simple neural network for my Machine Learning class at Coursera; it could recognize hand-written digits. I’m looking forward to implementing a CNN on the Tegra and really kicking things up a notch.
