First Autonomous Test Vehicle Developed Entirely By Toyota Research Institute Displayed At Prius Challenge Event At Sonoma Raceway

#artificialintelligence

"This new advanced safety research vehicle is the first autonomous testing platform developed entirely by TRI, and reflects the rapid progress of our autonomous driving program," said TRI CEO Gill Pratt. The platform is the second generation of the advanced safety research vehicle revealed to the public by Toyota at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. "It will learn individual driver habits and abilities and will benefit from shared intelligence from other cars as data gathering, sharing and connectivity technologies advance.-- We believe Guardian can probably be deployed sooner and more widely than Chauffeur, providing high-level driver-assist features capable of helping mitigate collisions and save lives, sooner rather than later." Taking place on March 3, the Prius Challenge brings together a select group of entrepreneurs, technologists and Silicon Valley automotive enthusiasts to engage with the Toyota Research Institute while having some fun at the Sonoma Raceway.-- The goal: to increase dialogue and build a community around the topics of mobility, data science, artificial intelligence and robotics.

DraftKings NASCAR Kansas Picks and Projections

#artificialintelligence

At the Kansas night race last year, four drivers led 10 percent or more, and that doesn't include race winner Jimmie Johnson who only led a small handful of laps, but took home the all important race win. For all the strategy talk about Talladega, make sure to check out this week's NASCAR episode of On the Daily DFS, where Matt and I discuss DraftKings NASCAR Talladega strategy for a good solid 40 minutes. Be sure to get the rest of my DraftKings NASCAR Kansas strategy on this week's NASCAR episode of On the Daily DFS. Now let's get to my cash and GPP picks, along with my fades and machine learning model projections and my new logistic regression projections for this weekend's DraftKings NASCAR Kansas contests.


DraftKings NASCAR Talladega Picks and Projections

#artificialintelligence

Because of the nature of Talladega, it's very hard to give accurate picks and projections (the best statistical models can only give a prediction accuracy in the 0.15 R-squared range for finishing position), so I'm introducing a new feature that uses logistic regression to model the probability that a driver ends up with a top six and a top 10 score for this weekend's DraftKings NASCAR Talladega slate. Be sure to read all the way to the end of this article, as On the Daily DFS is running a FREE DraftKings contest to win some swag from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Landon Cassill (@landoncassill). Now let's get to my cash and GPP picks, along with my fades and machine learning model projections and my new logistic regression projections for this weekend's DraftKings NASCAR Talladega contests. On the Daily DFS co-hosts Nick and Matt will be hosting a FREE DraftKings contest during the All-Star Race DraftKings slate on Saturday, May 21st, where they will be giving away some swag from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, and podcast guest, Landon Cassill (@landoncassill) to the top finishers in the contest.
