Self-Driving Car Startup Wayve Taps Microsoft For 'Supercomputer Muscle'


British startup Wayve said on Wednesday it will use supercomputer infrastructure designed for the firm by its investor Microsoft to process vast amounts of data as it develops machine learning-based models for self-driving cars. Wayve's technology relies on machine learning using camera sensors fitted on the outside of the vehicle, where the system learns from traffic patterns and the behaviour of other drivers, instead of the conventional method of relying on detailed digital maps and coding to tell vehicles how to operate. "Microsoft is providing supercomputing muscle," Wayve Chief Executive Alex Kendall told Reuters. "What we're looking to do goes beyond the bounds of what's possible for commercial cloud offerings today." Kendall said Microsoft will be able to process the terabyte of data - 1 trillion bytes, or equivalent to around an hour of consumer video - that Wayve's cars generate every minute.
