NVIDIA Announces $59 Jetson Nano 2GB, A Single Board Computer With Makers In Mind

NVIDIA kicked off their line of GPU-accelerated single board computers back in 2014 with the Jetson TK1, a $200 USD development system for those looking to get involved with the burgeoning world of so-called “edge computing”. It was designed to put high performance computing in a small and energy efficient enough package that it could be integrated directly into products, rather than connecting to a data center half-way across the world.

The TK1 was an impressive piece of hardware, but not something the hacker and maker community was necessarily interested in. For one thing, it was fairly expensive. But perhaps more importantly, it was clearly geared more towards industry types than consumers. We did see the occasional project using the TK1 and the subsequent TX1 and TX2 boards, but they were few and far between.

Then came the Jetson Nano. Its 128 core Maxwell CPU still packed plenty of power and was fully compatible with NVIDIA’s CUDA architecture, but its smaller size and $99 price tag made it far more attractive for hobbyists. According to the company’s own figures, the number of active Jetson developers has more than tripped since the Nano’s introduction in March of 2019. With the platform accessible to a larger and more diverse group of users, new and innovative applications for machine learning started pouring in.

Cutting the price of the entry level Jetson hardware in half was clearly a step in the right direction, but NVIDIA wanted to bring even more developers into the fray. So why not see if lightning can strike twice? Today they’ve officially announced that the new Jetson Nano 2GB will go on sale later this month for just $59. Let’s take a close look at this new iteration of the Nano to see what’s changed (and what hasn’t) from last

California Ushers In A Bold New Era Of Board Diversity

Efforts to secure diversity on corporate boards have reached a new level of intensity. Governor Gavin Newsom of California signed a statute into law on Wednesday, September 30, which will require publicly held corporations whose principal executive offices are located in California to satisfy mandated levels of racially, ethnically and other diverse directors beginning in 2021.

By emphasizing the interests of “underrepresented communities,” the new legislation promises to significantly increase the level of boardroom engagement on matters of leadership diversity. In so doing, it serves to broaden existing concepts of diversity to include specific ethnic groups and matters of sexual orientation. It is also a dramatic supplement to 2018 California legislation that required public companies headquartered in the state to assure the appointment of specified numbers of women to the board of directors—a groundbreaking development at the time.

While California politics are unique in many ways, this new law may well spark similar legislative initiatives in other states— as occurred with California’s 2018 legislation. For that and other reasons, the new law is noteworthy to the board nominating committees of public, private, and nonprofit corporations across the country and across industry sectors. Many boards may already believe, with some justification, that they have made great strides on matters of diversity. They just may no longer be enough, given the goals and objectives of the California statute, and the likelihood that they will be broadly promoted by corporate stakeholders and other interested parties.

The law provides for an escalating level of racial and ethnic diversity on the board, to be implemented over the next several years. Specifically, the new law requires affected companies to ensure that their boards have a minimum of one director from an
