  1. Nvidia could be the next AWS?

Nvidia, the leading graphics processing unit (GPU) manufacturer, is poised to become a major player in the cloud computing industry, potentially following in the footsteps of Amazon Web Services (AWS), according to a recent TechCrunch article. Both companies have experienced significant growth in their respective cloud businesses, driven by the increasing demand for AI and machine learning applications.

Nvidia’s revenue has surged from $7.1 billion in Q1 2024 to $22.1 billion in Q4 2024, largely due to the rapid expansion of its data center business. Similarly, AWS has consistently been a significant revenue generator for Amazon.

The growing partnership between Nvidia and AWS, which includes the introduction of NVIDIA’s GB200 Grace Blackwell Superchip and B100 Tensor Core GPUs on AWS, is expected to further bolster their positions in the cloud and AI markets. As the demand for AI and cloud services continues to increase, Nvidia’s strategic collaboration with AWS could position it as a major contender in the cloud computing industry

  1. Covariant | Powering the Future of Automation, Today

Covariant, a California-based AI Robotics company, has introduced RFM-1, a Robotics Foundation Model designed to equip robots with human-like reasoning abilities. RFM-1 was unveiled at MODEX 2024 and is considered the first successful application of generative AI in providing commercial robots with a deeper understanding of language and the physical world.

The RFM-1 model combines large language models (LLMs) and other types of models to create a “general-purpose reasoning engine” for robots, allowing them to comprehend and complete complex tasks, such as object manipulation and multi-step decision-making processes. This breakthrough technology could have far-reaching implications for various industries that rely on robotic automation, enabling robots to perform tasks with greater efficiency, adaptability, and autonomy.
