Nobody likes it, but we all have to deal with it. As the world's cities grow more densely populated, scientists and entrepreneurs are looking for solutions to gridlock, pollution and the other byproducts of a world filled with cars. Two sessions at the GPU Technology Conference earlier this month spoke to the role that data, deep learning and intelligent video analytics can play in easing traffic and improving quality of life for city dwellers the world over. Kurtis McBride, CEO of Miovision Technologies, an IVA startup based in Ontario, Canada, spoke to a room full of developers about his company's efforts -- and their 40 percent year-over-year growth -- to make traffic flow a little easier. Miovision's Open City platform gets data from existing city infrastructure and the company's own video cameras, and applies AI to create insights from it.
