Google Software Engineering Manager Prep bundle: Get this training package for just $40

ZDNet

Since the five biggest tech companies – Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook -- don't really care where their employees learn their skills, there's no reason to take out heavy loans or even time away from your current position to break into a well-paid career in the tech industry. And if you aren't sure exactly which field to pursue, you're in luck. The 2021 Google Software Engineering Manager Prep Bundle offers train-at-your-own pace courses across a wide variety of topics. What is low-code and no-code? Budding web developers can benefit from the "UI Design" and "JavaFX: Build Beautiful User Interfaces" courses.


Trucks Move Past Cars on the Road to Autonomy

WIRED

In 2016, three veterans of the still young autonomous vehicle industry formed Aurora, a startup focused on developing self-driving cars. Partnerships followed with major automakers, including Hyundai and Volkswagen. CEO Chris Urmson said at the time that the link-ups would help the company bring "mobility as a service" to urban areas--Uber-like rides without a human behind the wheel. But by late 2019, Aurora's emphasis had shifted. It said self-driving trucks, not cars, would be quicker to hit public roads en masse. Its executives, who had steadfastly refused to provide a timeline for their self-driving-car software, now say trucks equipped with its "Aurora Driver" will hit the roads in 2023 or 2024, with ride-hail vehicles following a year or two later.

Future Says... Ethical AI

#artificialintelligence

"AI is an instrument just like anything else. You can do harm and you can do wonderful things. ESG is the embodiment of all the good things you can do with AI. Squeeze all the juice out of AI but at the same time we need to understand the consequences so we can do things responsibly!" The wise words from Aiko Yamashita, Senior Data Scientist at the Advanced Analytics Centre of Excellence in DNB Bank, during our conversation on Altair's'Future Says'.

Alphabet's Intrinsic aims to unlock industrial robotics' economic potential

#artificialintelligence

All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Google parent Alphabet has spun out a new industrial robotics company called Intrinsic. Led by Wendy Tan-White, a veteran entrepreneur and investor who has served as VP of "moonshots" at Alphabet's R&D business X since 2019, Intrinsic is setting out to "unlock the creative and economic potential" of the $42 billion industrial robotics market. The company said it's creating "software tools" to make industrial robots more affordable and easier to use, extending their utility beyond big businesses and to more people -- 70% of the world's manufacturing currently takes place in just 10 countries. Industrial robots have surged in demand over the past year in the wake of the pandemic -- in Q1 this year, the Association for Advancing Automation reported a 19.6% increase in orders across North America alone.


Algorithm Helps Artificial Intelligence Systems Dodge Adversarial Inputs - ELE Times

#artificialintelligence

In a perfect world, what you see is what you get. If this were the case, the job of Artificial Intelligence systems would be refreshingly straightforward. Take collision avoidance systems in self-driving cars. If visual input to on-board cameras could be trusted entirely, an AI system could directly map that input to an appropriate action--steer right, steer left, or continue straight--to avoid hitting a pedestrian that its cameras see in the road. But what if there's a glitch in the cameras that slightly shifts an image by a few pixels? If the car blindly trusted so-called'adversarial inputs,' it might take unnecessary and potentially dangerous action.
