Traffic lights built into pavement for smartphone-using pedestrians in Netherlands

The Independent - Tech

A town in the Netherlands is trialling special pavement lights designed to help smartphone users cross the road safely. The LED strips have been embedded into the ground at a pedestrian crossing in Bodegraven, close to three schools. The hope is that they'll catch the eye of pedestrians who are too distracted by their smartphones to bother looking at the road, telling them when to cross and when not to cross by either glowing green or red, depending on the traffic light signals.

County-USC patients' personal information stolen in car break-in

Los Angeles Times

Files containing personal information on more than 700 patients treated at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center were stolen when an employee's car was broken into, county health officials said Monday. The break-in occurred in July. The county Department of Health Services released a statement after trying to notify the affected patients by mail. The files stolen from the car contained appointment lists for people who were treated at the County-USC neurosurgery clinic between May 10 and July 26, according to the statement. The documents did not contain Social Security numbers or financial information, but did include patients' full names, birth dates, telephone numbers and details about their scheduled appointments, including diagnosis information in some cases.


CAGE director charged under anti-terrorism law for refusing to hand over passwords to police

The Independent - Tech

The international director of campaign group CAGE has been charged under anti-terror laws, after refusing to surrender his passwords to police. Muhammad Rabbani was arrested last November after handing his laptop and mobile phone to officers but refusing to unlock them, after being stopped and searched at Heathrow Airport. He has now been charged under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

Isabel Dedring, Deputy Mayor, Transport at Greater London Authority will be a keynote speaker at the event of 28th June, hosted at The House of Lords. Dedring will explore how policies have to change in order for cities to be able to adapt to these changes in an ideal way. To download the brochure and to attend the Intelligent Mobility event, please visit http://frost.ly/78. The two major concerns connected to cars are accidents and pollution – which will be significantly reduced or even eliminated, once electric vehicles and autonomous driving work together. AI enabled automated driving also has the potential to eliminate traffic jams, as Frost & Sullivan Senior Partner Sarwant Singh explains: "Today, when you are caught in a traffic jam, it is already too late.


The What, How, and Why of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Self-Driving Cars Udacity

#artificialintelligence

If you're keeping up with the rapid changes in the technology industry, you're seeing a bunch of terms thrown around as if they're interchangeable--but really, there are some pretty important distinctions. In this post, we're going to demystify the differences, and clarify the relationships, among these terms, especially artificial intelligence, machine learning, and self-driving cars. Let's begin with a simple model for how we'll approach this topic: Artificial intelligence is the broad field that covers all sorts of different initiatives and efforts to create machines that behave intelligently. What exactly it means to'behave intelligently' is a question best left for the philosophers and cognitive scientists, but for us, it refers to creating machines that do the highly complex things that only humans have previously been able to do. That means that AI is about creating machines that do more than just follow the commands that we give them.
