Nuro Unveils Third-Gen Autonomous Delivery Vehicle Built With BYD


Autonomous vehicle company Nuro has unveiled its third-generation self-driving electric delivery vehicle in partnership with BYD North America. Simply called Nuro, it's described as the most advanced zero-occupant vehicle designed by the company to date. With the new model, the Mountain View, California-based startup hopes to scale its services to millions of people across the country. Nuro's third-generation vehicle is designed to carry more goods--it offers twice the cargo volume of its predecessor--and enable more deliveries thanks to a higher top speed of 45 mph (72 km/h). Its compartments can hold a combined 27 cubic feet (0.76 cubic meters) of stuff, which equates to about 24 bags of groceries.

Ambarella Announces Breakthrough AI-Based Image Signal Processing


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), an AI vision silicon company, today announced its new Artificial Intelligence Image Signal Processor (AISP). The company is showcasing this technology at its invitation-only event during CES 2022 in Las Vegas this week, running on its CV2 edge AI perception systems on chip (SoCs). Drawing on its 17 years of experience in ISP processing and best-in-class CVflow AI engine, Ambarella's new AI based ISP architecture uses neural networks to augment the image processing done by the hardware ISP integrated into its SoCs. This approach enables color imaging with low light at very low lux levels and minimal noise, a 10 to 100X improvement over state-of-the-art traditional ISPs, and new levels of high dynamic range (HDR) processing with more natural color reproduction and higher dynamic range. Initially demonstrated on the CV2 SoCs during CES this week, the new AISP will become available across Ambarella's entire CVflow SoC portfolio at resolutions up to 4K.

Tesla Delivers Almost 1 Mn Cars Globally

International Business Times

Tesla said Sunday it delivered nearly one million vehicles in 2021, almost twice as many as in the previous year, results that were better than expected despite global supply challenges. The US electric carmaker delivered more than 936,000 cars of all models in 2021, an increase of 87 percent over the previous year, the company said in a statement. Tesla had announced last January that it was aiming to increase deliveries by 50 percent per year over several years, so Sunday's results far exceeded that goal. The group, which recently moved its headquarters from Palo Alto, California to Austin, Texas, sold 911,208 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles as well as 24,964 vehicles of its luxury S and X models (at a price of $90,000 and $100,000 respectively). In the fourth quarter alone, Tesla delivered 308,600 cars. Tesla has managed to overcome global logistics issues that have plagued the auto industry.

AR on the rise in 2021: 13 notes


Augmented reality technology has taken off in spine and orthopedic surgery in 2021. In December, ClarifyEye expanded in Spain and Oman. The hospital is the first in Denver to implement Augmedics' Xvision system. Riverside Healthcare partnered with Brainlab to add its Zeiss Kinevo Microscope to its spine program. The first spine case combining augmented reality and a surgical robot was recently performed by Kornelis Poelstra, MD, PhD, director of The Robotic Spine Institute of Silicon Valley in Los Gatos, Calif., in May.

Avoma puts new capital to use making meetings work smarter – TechCrunch


Taking notes during a meeting is an art form, requiring multitasking skills for listening, typing and coming up with intelligent things to say while you do the other two. Not to mention the three or four different applications we use to prepare, run and follow-through with meetings. Avoma thinks we are doing too much and using too many apps during meetings and something is bound to get lost. It developed software that automates meeting workflows and makes nearly any kind of conversation more actionable. Today, the Palo Alto-based company announced $12 million in Series A funding in a round led by Headline, with participation from Storm Ventures, Global Founder Capital, Zoom Apps Fund, Operator Partners, Industry Ventures and existing investors K9 Ventures, Dragon Capital and Twin Ventures.

Explore Amazon SageMaker Serverless Inference for Deploying ML Models - The New Stack


Prisma Cloud from Palo Alto Networks is sponsoring our coverage of AWS re:Invent 2021. Launched at the company's re:Invent 2021 user conference earlier this month, Amazon Web Services' Amazon SageMaker Serverless Inference is a new inference option to deploy machine learning models without configuring and managing the compute infrastructure. It brings some of the attributes of serverless computing, such as scale-to-zero and consumption-based pricing. With serverless inference, SageMaker decides to launch additional instances based on the concurrency and the utilization of existing compute resources. The fundamental difference between the other mechanisms and serverless inference is how the compute infrastructure is provisioned, scaled, and managed. You don't even need to choose an instance type or define the minimum and maximum capacity.
