#artificialintelligence

We often hear the word AI, but what is it? AI is a program that runs on a computer. Since it is a program, it was created by a human being, and in that aspect, it is no different from ordinary programs. There is also no difference in the sequence of inputting information, processing it, and producing results between AI and general programs. At what point does an ordinary program become an AI, or is an AI born from a completely different process than an ordinary program?


DRONES: THE BEGINNER COURSE

#artificialintelligence

IMPORTANT: THIS COURSE IS A TRANSLATION OF THE UDEMY COURSE IN PORTUGUESE "DRONES: APRENDA A PILOTAR E ABRA SEU NEGÓCIO". The drone market is very promising. And each country develops its own rules regarding the use of drones. To enter in this market the first thing to do is to find out about these rules. Also, understanding who are the drone manufactures and the drone models' applications it will help you to choose and purchase the best drone for your need.


Implementing Real-time Object Detection System using PyTorch and OpenCV

#artificialintelligence

The Self-Driving car might still be having difficulties understanding the difference between humans and garbage can, but that does not take anything away from the amazing progress state-of-the-art object detection models have made in the last decade. Combine that with the image processing abilities of libraries like OpenCV, it is much easier today to build a real-time object detection system prototype in hours. In this guide, I will try to show you how to develop sub-systems that go into a simple object detection application and how to put all of that together. I know some of you might be thinking why I am using Python, isn't it too slow for a real-time application, and you are right; to some extent. The most compute-heavy operations, like predictions or image processing, are being performed by PyTorch and OpenCV both of which use c behind the scene to implement these operations, therefore it won't make much difference if we use c or python for our use case here.


Shapley Value: Explaining AI

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is gradually becoming critical part of life. From recommending movies to self driving cars, AI is making its presence felt in all walks of life. As ML models are taking critical decision, gradual need was felt to explain the decision taken by these models. Most of these model tend to be black box. While accurate perdition helps, answer to'why it was decided the way it was' is equally important .


Defining Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science

#artificialintelligence

Today's business world is overloaded with buzzwords like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning. We know that these technologies and tools are changing the competitive landscape across verticals and are soon to become more table stakes and foundational than disruptive. However, it's possible to know they are important but not understand what they really mean. If you're confused, that's understandable as these are all buzz terms and they're not even used consistently. In this introductory post, I will explain the difference between AI, Machine Learning, and Data Science.


Autonomous vehicles need a large-systems approach to safety

#artificialintelligence

The six modules in the MSS are split between lagging and leading measures. Lagging measures track only outcomes, such as a crash, once it has already occurred. Conversely, leading measures are proactive indicators that measure prevention efforts and can be observed and evaluated prior to a crash occurring, providing foresight to the technology's performance prior to deployment. By encompassing both types of measures, the MSS intends to produce an output that gives a comprehensive view of AV safety. Much like the modules themselves, the MSS will compete in the marketplace of safety systems. Federal, state and local regulators will select approaches from this marketplace to adopt, iterate and develop. This open marketplace will drive greater transparency in safety data and greater substantive safety for pedestrians and passengers alike. Autonomous technology is expected to drastically improve the safety, sustainability, and mobility of our transportation systems. Acknowledging that creating a cohesive and inclusive approach to safety is the key to accelerating AV development, the large-systems approach offers a new way of thinking about AV safety.


Why we still don't have self-driving cars on the roads in 2021 » Stuff

#artificialintelligence

Do you remember the time when self-driving cars were upon us? It was almost a decade ago when the Autonomous Vehicle division at Google (now Waymo) promised a world where people would be chauffeured around by self-driving robot cars. We were shown computer renderings of futuristic cities filled with autonomous robot taxis and luxurious concept vehicles where riders could rest on fully reclining seats while watching high-resolution TVs. That was what they promised us. As in turns out, they were wrong.


U.S. push for self-driving cars faces union, lawyers opposition

#artificialintelligence

The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday again rejected attempts to lift regulations to allow for the deployment of thousands of autonomous vehicles as union groups and attorneys campaign against the legislative proposal. The committee rebuffed the bid by Republican Senator John Thune to attach measures lifting regulations on autonomous vehicles to a $78 billion surface transportation bill after he sought last month to attach it in May to a bill on China tech policy. Thune has proposed granting the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the power to grant exemptions for tens of thousands of self-driving vehicles per manufacturer from safety standards written with human drivers in mind. The surface bill, which would boost funding for Amtrak and other transportation needs, was approved by the committee on a 25-3 vote. Thune and other lawmakers have sought for nearly five years to win approval.
