AI Computing for Automotive: The Battle for Autonomy - EE Times Asia

#artificialintelligence

The 2025 market for AI, including ADAS and robotic vehicles, is estimated at $2.75 billion – of which $2.5 billion will be "ADAS only"... Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually invading our lives through everyday objects like smartphones, smart speakers, and surveillance cameras. The hype around AI has led some players to consider it as a secondary objective, more or less difficult to achieve, rather than as a central tool to achieve the real objective: autonomy. Who are the winners and losers in the race for autonomy? "AI is gradually invading our lives and this will be particularly true in the automotive world" asserts Yohann Tschudi, Technology & Market Analyst, Computing & Software at Yole Développement (Yole). "AI could be the central tool to achieve AD, in the meantime some players are afraid of overinflated hype and do not put AI at the center of their AD strategy".


The Ten Most Dangerous Roads In The World, And How Self-Driving Cars Would Fare

#artificialintelligence

Will self-driving cars be able to cope with highly dangerous roads? Let's talk about dangerous roads. In a moment, I'll provide you with a recently published list of the presumed Top Ten most dangerous roads in the world. For some of you, the odds are that you'll be happy that you've never had a cause to try and traverse these bad-to-the-bone roads, while others of you are probably going to put these alarming roads on your bucket list of places you have to go and give a whirl someday. Do you prefer roads that are calm, easy to navigate, and present little or no qualms?


AI, Machine Learning, and Self-Driving Cars. Emrah Gultekin shares his predictions on where AI will be popping up next.

The challenges in deployment are different from the challenges in technology. Deployment challenges include getting companies to understand how AI benefits them. We tell people it will save them millions. One client is saving hundreds of millions of dollars a year using our AI. But the problem is, it does disrupt their internal business and workflows until it's implemented.


What are Point Clouds?

#artificialintelligence

An object can be replicated by creating its 3D model and then using a 3D printer. Another important application can be found in manufacturing industries for inspection purposes. Minute cracks, faults or problems can be detected easily by comparing the reconstructed 3D model with the known model. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM): SLAM is a technique used to create map of the surrounding environment. It is very useful in robotics and self-driving cars.


Udemy Coupon Deep Learning in Java - Artificial Intelligence III

#artificialintelligence

This course is about deep learning fundamentals and convolutional neural networks. Convolutional neural networks are one of the most successful deep learning approaches: self-driving cars rely heavily on this algorithm. First you will learn about densly connected neural networks and its problems. The next chapter are about convolutional neural networks: theory as well as implementation in Java with the deeplearning4j library. The last chapters are about recurrent neural networks and the applications!Who this course is for:


Microsoft flexed its cloud and AI muscles at Build 2020

Engadget

This week Microsoft hosted its annual Build conference completely online. That meant streaming keynotes, panels, digital breakouts and workshops for developers. The company's investments in cloud and machine learning are starting to deliver real products. Businesses continue to be the main target of its software offerings -- things like Outlook, Office, Teams and SharePoint. Microsoft has been working to make its 365 services more powerful.


Machine Learning Coursera

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.


Coronavirus grounded the autonomous-vehicle industry, but data troves could be a savior

MIT Technology Review

Brandon Moak felt as if a freight train had hit him. It was mid-March, and the cofounder and CTO of the autonomous- trucking startup Embark Trucks had been keeping tabs on the emergence of covid-19. As a shelter-in-place order went into effect throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, where Embark is based, Moak and his team were forced to ground almost all their 13 self-driving semi-trucks (a few stayed on the road moving essential freight but weren't in autonomous mode) and send home the majority of their workforce, with no idea how long it'd be before they could return. For safety reasons, autonomous vehicles typically have two operators apiece. That's a no-go in the age of social distancing, and leaders of autonomous-vehicle companies knew they'd have to mothball their fleets.


Intel/MobilEye Promises Self-Driving Robotaxi Service In 2022, While Others Back Off

#artificialintelligence

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JANUARY 07: Mobileye CEO and Intel Senior Vice President Amon Shashua speaks ... [ ] during an Intel press event for CES 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on January 7, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES, the world's largest annual consumer technology trade show, runs from January 8-11 and features about 4,500 exhibitors showing off their latest products and services to more than 180,000 attendees. At the EcoMotion self-driving conference held (in cyberspace) from Israel this week, Amnon Shashua, founder and CEO of MobilEye, now a unit of Intel INTC, declared their intention to offer robotaxi service, with no safety drivers, in early 2022. They will begin in their headquarters town of Jerusalem, then move to Tel Aviv, then France, Korea and China. He makes this statement while many other companies, particularly car OEMs, are scaling back their plans and timelines on full robocar service.


All-Girl Robotics Team In Afghanistan Works On Low-Cost Ventilator ... With Car Parts

NPR Technology

Elham Mansoori, member of Afghan Dreamers, an all-girls robotics team in Afghanistan, works on their prototype of a ventilator. In Afghanistan, a group of teenage girls are trying to build a mechanized, hand-operated ventilator for coronavirus patients, using a design from M.I.T. and parts from old Toyota Corollas. It sounds like an impossible dream, but then again, the all-girls robotics team in question is called the "Afghan Dreamers." Living a country where two-thirds of adolescent girls cannot read or write, they're used to overcoming challenges. The team of some dozen girls aged 15 to 17 was formed three years ago by Roya Mahboob, an Afghan tech entrepreneur who heads the Digital Citizen Fund, a group that runs classes for girls in STEM and robotics and oversees and funds the Afghan Dreamers.
