How Tesla Uses Advanced AI to Innovate Self-Driving Cars - TechAcute


The future of self-driving cars may be nearer than you think. Vehicle manufacturers across the globe are trying to develop self-driving systems to keep human drivers safe. To make a car that can drive itself, however, you need to give it the means to "see" the road. AI systems have faster reflexes than humans, but that doesn't mean much if they can't recognize potential hazards. Different manufacturers take various approaches to this problem, but most incorporate LiDAR.

AI: The next enabler of media, journalism, and content creation?


In a digital world overloaded with content and short on resources, reaching and engaging new audiences has been a persistent challenge for creative industries. Some top media players have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) for a possible solution. But the adoption of AI-powered technologies in the media has been slow compared to its uptake in other sectors, she said, speaking at an online event organized by the European Broadcasting Union's AI and Data Initiative (AIDI). Lack of resources, limited understanding, and the low number of use cases to date continue to hold back media AI use, she added. The AI Maturity Model produced by digital consultancy Gartner shows the media using AI mostly on active and operational levels.

China will dominate AI unless U.S. invests more, commission warns


The U.S., which once had a dominant head start in artificial intelligence, now has just a few years' lead on China and risks being overtaken unless government steps in, according to a new report to Congress and the White House. Why it matters: Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who chaired the committee that issued the report, tells Axios that the U.S. risks dire consequences if it fails to both invest in key technologies and fully integrate AI into the military. Driving the news: The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence approved its 750-page report on Monday, following a 2-year effort. Schmidt chaired the 15-member commission, which also included Oracle's Safra Catz, Microsoft's Eric Horvitz and Amazon's Andy Jassy. "We don't have to go to war with China," Schmidt said.
