Volvo Buses Demonstrates Autonomous Driving For Bus Depot

#artificialintelligence

Volvo Buses demonstrated autonomous driving of an electric bus at a bus depot, which happens to be the first such demo at at real depot, used by bus operator Keolis, outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. The Swedish manufacturer notes that it will take years to make buses self-driving on public roads but depots are a fairly simple application for autonomous driving as the environment is known, with predictable and repetitive traffic flows. Having an option of autonomous driving, bus operators would be able to order buses to park, drive to the wash or charging station, all by itself. It's expected that bus operators will be able to purchase such systems within 5-10 years. "During the demonstration, the fully-electric 12 m autonomous bus successfully drove itself between the parking bay and several workstations including cleaning, servicing and electric charging, before parking itself in the correct bay – all while carrying passengers."

You have bought a small product online from your favorite retailer. Your cart value is at £4.99, now you are at the checkout and the delivery fee is an additional £7.99 on top. The scenario above represents a snapshot of one of the largest problems in online retail. With trillions of dollars spent online annually, when you buy something online, a large chunk of the cost of most shopping carts goes towards delivery. It is widely agreed by industry leaders that the global solution is to automate the last-mile delivery process, thus completely removing the human cost of delivery.


A gentle introduction to deep neural networks

Understanding deep learning technology Understand correlation between deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence History of deep learning Deep learning networks Intuition behind deep learning and artificial neural network A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips Learning the fundamentals of deep learning puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Jobs in deep learning area are plentiful, and being able to learn deep learning will give you a strong edge. Deep learning is becoming very popular. Tesla self-driving cars, Alexa, Siri, IBM Deep Blue and Watson are some famous example of deep learning application. Understanding deep learning is vital in information retrieval, image classification and autonomous car driving.


Council Post: How Autonomous Vehicles Can Save Us (And The Ride-Hailing Industry)

#artificialintelligence

With Uber and Lyft recently announcing large quarterly losses, it's clear they have to make serious changes to reach profitability and even stay in business. One potential path to survival is to replace their biggest operational expense, the human driver, with a fully autonomous fleet. Autonomous vehicles (AV) will save Uber and Lyft (and other companies) in addition to making our roads safer. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, globally, "Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day." This is equivalent to wiping out the entire population of San Jose every year.


5 Disruptive Technologies Shaping Our Future

#artificialintelligence

Throughout the centuries, humans have made tremendous leaps forward in the way we build, interact, and communicate with each other and the world. More recently, we've shifted self-execute industrialization to the age of information. We now have a seemingly unlimited amount of knowledge available at our fingertips. Technological advances are now accelerating faster than ever before. As technology continues to evolve, we can expect it to impact all aspects of our lives and society as a whole.


Uber's Mistakes, 'Ford v Ferrari,' and More Car News

#artificialintelligence

But sometimes we take a look back. This week, we ran an excerpt from a new book that did just that, by examining how one psychologist's tireless investigation into WWII plane crashes inadvertently created an entire new field of study, and one that contributed directly to everyone's favorite 20th century tech product: the Macintosh computer. We also wondered what would happen if the makers of this year's (good!) car film Ford v Ferrari had included a bit more gearhead porn. It's been a week: Let's get you caught up. In an interview, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi likened Saudi Arabia's assasnation of Jamal Kashoggi to the decisions that lead to the death of an Arizona woman who was struck and killed by a testing self-driving Uber vehicle.


The Importance of Chatbots for Your Marketing Strategy

Let's dive into the increasing influence of chatbot marketing through some credible statistics: Let's offer some more insights regarding the popularity of the Chatbots.


Nighttime Driving and AI Autonomous Cars - AI Trends

#artificialintelligence

Are you a nighttime driver? Some people like to drive at night and enjoy pretending they are in their Batmobile and seeking to fight crime. There are some people that reluctantly drive at night -- they drive at night because they need to get home from work or carry out other errands, but otherwise believe that nighttime driving has inherent hazards. There are those that entirely avoid driving at night because they either have difficulty driving at night, or they know that the stats about night driving are scary, or because they believe that vampires come out at night. Speaking of stats, according to various governmental reports, it is said that there is about 60% less traffic at night but 40% of all fatal car accidents happen at nighttime, furthermore the fatality rate for car occupants is about three times higher at night than during the daytime, and the fatal crash rate for 16-year-old drivers is twice what it is at night versus during the day (a good reason to keep your teenager from driving at night!). What makes nighttime driving so terrible? One aspect is the impact on visibility.
