Shapiro is our guest on this episode of The Weekly Driver Podcast. Co-host Bruce Aldrich and James Raia discuss all things related to the future of autonomous vehicles with the 25-year veteran of the computer graphics and semiconductor industries.

Since 2014, Nvidia has diversified its business focusing on four markets: gaming, professional visualization, data centers and auto. Nvidia is also now focused on artificial intelligence.

In addition to manufacturing, Nvidia provides parallel processing capabilities to researchers and scientists that allow them to efficiently run high-performance applications. They are deployed in supercomputing sites around the world.
