Mobileye CEO clowns on Nvidia for allegedly copying self-driving car safety scheme

While creating self-driving car systems, it's natural that different companies might independently arrive at similar methods or results — but the similarities in a recent "first of its kind" Nvidia proposal to work done by Mobileye two years ago were just too much for the latter company's CEO to take politely. Amnon Shashua, in a blog post on parent company Intel's news feed cheekily titled "Innovation Requires Originality, openly mocks Nvidia's "Safety Force Field," pointing out innumerable similarities to Mobileye's "Responsibility Sensitive Safety" paper from 2017. It is clear Nvidia’s leaders have continued their pattern of imitation as their so-called “first-of-its-kind” safety concept is a close replica of the RSS model we published nearly two years ago.
