The renaissance of silicon will create industry giants – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Every time we binge on Netflix or install a new internet-connected doorbell to our home, we're adding to a tidal wave of data. In just 10 years, bandwidth consumption has increased 100 fold, and it will only grow as we layer on the demands of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, robotics and self-driving cars. According to Intel, a single robo car will generate 4 terabytes of data in 90 minutes of driving. That's more than 3 billion times the amount of data people use chatting, watching videos and engaging in other internet pastimes over a similar period. Tech companies have responded by building massive data centers full of servers.


What Is Tesla Autopilot? Answers For FAQ CleanTechnica

#artificialintelligence

Seemingly, one of the most controversial things about Tesla cars is its Autopilot feature, a driver-assist feature that helps drivers navigate and pilot their vehicle. Oddly, while news of exciting Autopilot features comes out regularly, general information about exactly what Autopilot is, what the options are, and what it can and cannot do seem to be few and far between. I have tried to collect and answer the biggest questions about Autopilot below to help prospective buyers know what the system is and is not, as well as to inform journalists about the system in case they find themselves trying to cover a news story regarding the system. When the next questionable news story comes out, please feel free to link this article for anyone wondering about the system. Please note that all of the below information refers to Tesla vehicles containing Autopilot 2.0 hardware or higher in them (vehicles built since October of 2016). Although, the majority of the information will apply to all Tesla vehicles that are Autopilot enabled.


A Brief History of AI, From French Philosophy to Self-Driving Cars - Dell Technologies

#artificialintelligence

And yet, AI's current automated task-mastering was first posited by the French philosopher René Descartes almost 400 years ago. Descartes, who famously coined, "I think, therefore I am," pondered about the ability of machines to reason. While machines may be able to "do some things as well, or better, than humans, they would inevitably fail in others," whereas human reason can universally adapt to any task. Though Descartes' idea of machines differs from today's reality, some say he threw down the gauntlet for what we now refer to as general AI--or machines that can think like humans.

Business Basics for Data Scientists

#artificialintelligence

Machine Learning helps your company create entirely new products to increase revenue. An example is new mobility services powered by self-driving cars, also called Robo-Taxi. Without Machine Learning, this new product is hard to create. In this case, Machine Learning allows the company to develop an entirely new product to increase revenue. The holy grail of Artificial Intelligence ("AI")-powered products is a product that enters the Virtuous Circle of AI.


Top 10 Limitations of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning - Amit Ray

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has provided remarkable capabilities and advances in image understanding, voice recognition, face recognition, pattern recognition, natural language processing, game planning, military applications, financial modeling, language translation, and search engine optimization. In medicine, deep learning is now one of the most powerful and promising tool of AI, which can enhance every stage of patient care --from research, omics data integration, combating antibiotic resistance bacteria, drug design and discovery to diagnosis and selection of appropriate therapy. It is also the key technology behind self-driving car. However, deep learning algorithms of AI have several inbuilt limitations. To utilize the full power of artificial intelligence, we need to know its strength and weakness and the ways to overcome those limitations in near future.


UPS Has Been Delivering Cargo in Self-Driving Trucks for Months And No One Knew

#artificialintelligence

The self-driving freight truck startup TuSimple has been carrying mail across the state of Arizona for several weeks. UPS announced on Thursday that its venture capital arm has made a minority investment in TuSimple. The announcement also revealed that since May TuSimple autonomous trucks have been hauling UPS loads on a 115-mile route between Phoenix and Tucson. UPS confirmed to Gizmodo this is the first time UPS has announced it has been using TuSimple autonomous trucks to deliver packages in the state. Around the same time as the UPS and TuSimple program began, the United States Postal Service and TuSimple publicized a two-week pilot program to deliver mail between Phoenix and Dallas, a 1,000 mile trip.



Estimating Uncertainty in Machine Learning Models -- Part 1

#artificialintelligence

"We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!" Let's imagine for a second that we're building a computer vision model for a construction company, ABC Construction. The company is interested in automating its aerial site surveillance process, and would like our algorithm to run on their drones. We happily get to work, and deploy our algorithm onto their fleets of drones, and go home thinking that the project is a great success. A week later, we get a call from ABC Construction saying that the drones keep crashing into the white trucks that they have parked on all their sites.


Autonomous Driving: Hype or Reality?

#artificialintelligence

In recent years, autonomous driving and so-called robotaxis have become one of the hottest topics in the automotive industry - and beyond! Recent autonomous vehicle forecasts call for sales of more than 30 million autonomous vehicles in 2040. Although the sharpest gains are expected to occur after 2030 compared to one million in 2025, commercial market introduction is announced by several OEMs for 2021. Traditional car manufacturers and established suppliers are not the only ones who are trying hard to find the sweet spots in this new emerging mobility value chain. Tech giants like Nvidia and Intel, leading software and internet players like Google (Waymo) and new mobility startups such as Aurora, Cruise and Uber are also on the verge of reaping the rewards of an entirely new future mobility era.


Researchers at Argonne are developing the deep learning framework MaLTESE (Machine Learning Tool for Engine Simulations and Experiments) to meet ever-increasing demands to deliver better engine performance, fuel economy and reduced emissions.

#artificialintelligence

Utilizing ALCF supercomputing resources, Argonne researchers are developing the deep learning framework MaLTESE with autonomous -- or self-driving -- and cloud-connected vehicles in mind. This work could help meet demand to deliver better engine performance, fuel economy and reduced emissions. Researchers used nearly the full capacity of the ALCF's Theta system to simulate a typical 25-minute drive cycle of 250,000 vehicles. Researchers at Argonne are developing the deep learning framework MaLTESE (Machine Learning Tool for Engine Simulations and Experiments) to meet ever-increasing demands to deliver better engine performance, fuel economy and reduced emissions. Automotive manufacturers are facing an ever-increasing demand to deliver better engine performance, fuel economy and reduced emissions.
