Researchers and engineers from BMW are working at IBM's Munich headquarters for its Watson Internet of Things (IoT) technology. They'll help develop IBM's Watson cognitive system for integration into automotive products, which will be able to learn from the physical world and pass intelligence back to it. BMW is Read More ...

Could this finally make KITT from Knight Rider a reality? The companies said they want to explore the potential of Watson "personalizing the driving experience and creating more intuitive driver support systems for cars of the future."


Google seeks changes in Michigan self-driving car bill

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

DETROIT -- Michigan is seeking to retain its leadership as the heart of the nation's auto industry in a new tech-driven age. But Google isn't happy with legislation aimed at fostering the development of self-driving cars. The California tech giant is contesting legislation the Michigan Senate passed last week aimed at making the state a hub for autonomous car research. Google sees some of the language as excluding companies like Google that are newcomers to making cars. In a letter, John Krafcik, head of Google's Self-Driving Car Project, took issue with two provisions and asked that they be amended: "One interpretation of that definition would exclude companies, like Google, that manufactures autonomous vehicles but do not currently sell them," Krafcik wrote.


Role of Artificial Intelligence in Future Vehicles - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

Films like The Fifth Element and Total Recall introduced the concept of autonomous vehicles to our collective subconscious and, in a way, inspired tech firms and car manufacturers to develop driverless technology. The idea of AI-powered vehicles (such as self-driving cars, unmanned public transportation buses, and pilot-less areal vehicles) however, has now been around for some time. Are we any closer, though, to realizing the potential of AI in automobiles of the future than we were a decade back? Nissan and Delphi, for instance, have released official press statements claiming the same. Small-scale autonomous public transportation experiment has already been carried out in China.
