AI could help reduce bike accidents

#artificialintelligence 

When I found out a company called Tome Software was going to start a trial that uses AI to reduce bike accidents, I took note. The company will start by testing real cyclists using Trek bikes at the University of Michigan's TechLab at Mcity. It plans to focus on what Jake Sigal, the CEO for Tome Software, told me is the most common type of accident -- a car hitting a bike from the side or behind. For me, it's an interesting project because it means reducing bike accidents by warning both the cars and those on bikes in the most dangerous intersections.
