#001A Introduction to Deep Learning Master Data Science

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning is a sub-field of machine learning that is rapidly rising and is driving a lot of developments that has already transformed traditional internet businesses like web search and advertising. In the past couple of years, deep learning has gotten good from reading X-ray images, to delivering personalized education, precision agriculture, and even to self-driving cars. Over the next decades, we will have an opportunity to build an amazing world and society that is AI powered, and maybe you will play a big role in the creation of this AI powered society. What exactly is AI? AI is the new electricity. About 100 years ago, the electrification of our society has transformed every major industry like, transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, communication and many more.


Top 25 Computer Vision Project Ideas for 2020 - DataFlair

#artificialintelligence

Computer vision is the most powerful and compelling type of AI and is basically a field of study that has focused on solving the problem of computers' vision. Zuckerberg said, "If we are able to build computers that could understand what's in an image and tell a blind person who otherwise couldn't see that image, that would be pretty amazing as well." Computer vision is a subfield of AI that trains computer in understanding the visual world with the help of deep learning models to easily identify objects and then reacts accordingly. DataFlair is providing you 25 ideas on computer vision projects with Python to provide you real-world experience. If you are interested in making your career in computer vision then you should start getting your hands dirty by working on these real-time computer vision projects with Python.


Lexus releases new concept for a zero-D lunar speeder bike and a new fleet of space-age SUVs

Daily Mail - Science & tech

This month, the European Advances Studio for Toyota and Lexus revealed seven new designs offering a glimpse at what the luxury car manufacturer's products might look if there was a commercial market for space vehicles. The designs were part of a new issue of Document Journal, which commissioned ten designers to create a'Lunar Portfolio,' imagining what life would be like on the moon. The featured design is called'Zero Gravity,' a single-rider style vehicle that uses a speculative magnetic levitation technology to power the vehicle as it speeds along just above the surface of the moon. 'The design reinterprets the signature Lexus spindle grille and uses the motorcycle-style of driving to employ the new concept of Tazuna (which mean "reins" in Japanese): the fundamental human-centered philosophy,' Lexus explained in a statement released alongside the new portfolio of designs. 'Inspired by how a single rein can be used to achieve mutual understanding between horse and rider, the steering control provides active driving enjoyment created by the direct communication between human and machine.'

Birds do not collide when they fly in flocks. We may wonder how they do not and how they flock in a self-organized and well-orchestrated movement. It is a collective intelligence that is encapsulated within the interactions between the birds and the environment. The cohesive self-organized movement of a biological swarm such as flocking birds is commonly studied. Such phenomena have had successful applications in robotics and autonomous vehicles, and it has attracted a renewed interest from the Artificial Intelligence and the Predictive Analytics communities.

Avoiding Carsickness When the Cars Drive Themselves

#artificialintelligence

The day is approaching when commuters stuck in soul-crushing traffic will be freed from the drudgery of driving. Companies are investing billions to devise sensors and algorithms so motorists can turn our attention to where we like it these days: our phones. But before the great promise of multitasking on the road can be realized, we need to overcome an age-old problem: motion sickness. "The autonomous-vehicle community understands this is a real problem it has to deal with," said Monica Jones, a transportation researcher at the University of Michigan. "That motivates me to be very systematic."


Silicon Valley Event On Machine Learning Tackles The Latest Riddles Vexing AI Self-Driving Cars

#artificialintelligence

There's a child's riddle that asks you to indicate what can be held in your left hand and yet cannot be held in your right hand. Take a moment to ponder this riddle. Your first thought might be that anything that could be held in your left hand should also be able to be held in your right hand, assuming of course that there's no trickery involved. One trick might be that you could hold your right hand in your left hand, but that you cannot presumably "hold" your right hand in your right hand since your right hand is your right hand. Another trick might be that your right hand is perchance weaker than your left hand, thus if an object was heavy, potentially you could hold it in your left hand, but you could not do so with your less powerful right hand.


Phantom Of The Operator: Self-Driving Tech's Slowing Timetable Creates Opening For This Monitoring And Guidance Startup

#artificialintelligence

A remote Phantom Auto operator monitors a Postmates delivery robot. The 2020s may yet be the decade of self-driving cars, but early predictions from automakers and tech developers including Tesla, Nissan, Nvidia and Ford that autonomous vehicles would be ready as soon as this year or next don't seem to be panning out. This week auto supply giant Magna ended a tech alliance with Lyft on self-driving robo-taxis owing to a slower-than-anticipated timetable. But the billions of dollars that have been poured into R&D and development of advanced sensors and computing the past few years are being leveraged for near-term applications, including delivery robots and self-driving trucks, as well as autonomous warehouse, cleaning and security bots. And as those vehicles proliferate, there's an increasing need to keep track of them, monitor their operations, provide remote guidance in some cases or even, in very limited circumstances, drive them remotely.


Partners to develop AI hardware and software for autonomous vehicles -- Softei.com

#artificialintelligence

Videantis, which provides automotive deep learning, computer vision and video coding solutions, has announced that it will partner with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Infineon and other leading companies and universities to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) ASIC and software development tools specifically for intelligent autonomous vehicles. The Videantis AI multi-core processor platform and tool flow has been selected for the KI-Flex autonomous driving chip project. Autonomous driving relies on fast and reliable processing and merging of data from several lidar, camera and radar sensors in the vehicle. This data can provide an accurate picture of the traffic conditions and environment to allow the vehicle to make intelligent decisions when driving. The process of intelligently analysing these volumes of sensor data requires high-performance, efficient, and versatile compute solutions.


This son of an Irish emigrant invented Artificial Intelligence and changed the world

#artificialintelligence

John McCarthy was the son of a penniless Irish immigrant from Kerry and maybe the most important Irish American you never heard of. He died in 2011 aged 84. He was an American computer scientist pioneer and inventor and is known as the father of artificial intelligence (AI) after playing the key role in the development of intelligent machines we now call computers. He won the Turing Prize, one step below the Nobel, in 1971. He coined the term artificial intelligence for a 1955 Dartmouth College conference he chiefly organized which was the first-ever AI conference.
