Dubai: Artificial Intelligence-powered services, such as customer call management system and drone-based statistician, will be showcased at Smart Dubai's pavilion of 59 government and private establishments at the GITEX Technology Week 2018, which begins on Sunday. Running till Thursday at Dubai World Trade Centre, GITEX will feature the establishments exhibiting their latest smart services to the public. Dr Aisha Bint Butti Bin Bishr, director general of Smart Dubai Office, said: "Since its inception, Smart Dubai has been on a mission to implement the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into a full-fledged smart city and make it one of the happiest in the world. His Highness has also called on all stakeholders across the public and private sectors to work together and strive towards that ambitious objective. We at Smart Dubai have forged numerous partnerships as we progress towards our goals, and are delighted that these partners – be they government entities, private organisations, or start-ups – are joining us [at GITEX] to showcase their advanced smart services created for the people and the community."
The world's first fleet of self-driving cars could be deployed thousands of miles from where they were invented. The city of Dubai will have 200 of Tesla's self-driving, electric taxis on its roads by 2020. The cars will initially be used on'autopilot', meaning a human driver has to be behind the wheel for emergencies, but will come with the hardware needed for full self-driving capability. The world's first fleet of self-driving cars could be deployed a long way from where they were invented. The city of Dubai will have 200 self-driving Tesla taxis, including Tesla's Model S pictured here, on its roads by 2020 Tesla announced an updated version of their autopilot hardware in December last year, named HW2.
"I don't want to be remembered as the guy that put a train in a tube" is the quote du jour from Hyperloop One's Josh Giegel. Giegel and co-founder Shervin Pishevar have been showing off a revised vision for how the future of public transportation will operate that moves far beyond intercity travel. But does this level of futurism run the risk of alienating governments and regulators who just want a cheap alternative to high-speed rail? We sat down with the pair to ask them to justify their even more utopian vision for the future of travel. The company's latest pitch video demonstrates this, showing how a route between Dubai and Abu Dhabi would work.
By 2020, self-driving cars will have progressed so far that they can drive safely at speeds as fast as 200 mph in their own partitioned lanes on highways. In these circumstances, the commute to Los Angeles from San Francisco would take only an hour and a half -- without the need to catch a connection to a supersonic pod. From Abu Dhabi to Al Ain or Dubai could take the car 30 to 40 minutes, door to door. In other words, Elon Musk's self-driving cars and HTT's short-haul Hyperloops may be competing with each other. I'm one of those who would prefer the convenience of having their car come with them so that they can keep extra stuff in the back and be working uninterrupted on the commute.
