Seamless cross-border 5G connectivity achieved in autonomous cars


Swedish luxury automobile manufacturer Volvo Cars and leading ICT provider Ericsson have taken an important step towards achieving seamless cross-border 5G connectivity in vehicles. Partners in the EU-backed 5GCroCo project, the two companies successfully tested the handover of connected cars between two national mobile 5G networks. The trial took place at the AstaZero test site in Sweden. The track has testing capabilities for different traffic environments, making it possible to assess advanced safety systems for all kinds of traffic situations. It features a 5.7 km rural road, a city area, a high-speed area and a multi-lane road.

AI: Experts Voice Concerns Over Its Ethical Design And Focus On Profits, Social Control


Artificial intelligence can "understand" and shape much of what happens in people's lives. AI apps like Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Google Assistant answer questions and converse with people who call out their name. In navigation apps, they help people drive from one location to another. Models also can scan platforms for the use of fraudulent credit cards, and help diagnose cancer. Still, experts and advocates have voiced concerns about the long-term impact and implications of AI applications.

Roadmap to becoming an artificial intelligence engineer


Market valuation experts assigned the global artificial intelligence market a value of $39.9 billion in 2019 with a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 42 percent from 2020 to 2027. The world is constantly evolving with many technological developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has a massive impact on several machines from the android system in phones to web indexes and self-driving vehicles to other various electronic devices, the impact of AI is growing exponentially, it is estimated that AI will provide more than 2 million job opportunities within the next couple of years. With the increase in interest in the field of AI, the demand for AI engineers has increased immensely. In this article, let's understand what an artificial intelligence engineer does, what prerequisites are, and what skills are required to be an artificial intelligence engineer, top U.S. states for AI jobs, which is the best artificial intelligence certification.

DeepMind scientist calls for ethical AI as Google faces ongoing backlash


Where does your enterprise stand on the AI adoption curve? Take our AI survey to find out. Raia Hadsell, a research scientist at Google DeepMind, believes "responsible AI is a job for all." That was her thesis during a talk today at the virtual Lesbians Who Tech Pride Summit, where she dove into the issues currently plaguing the field and the actions she feels are required to ensure AI is ethically developed and deployed. "AI is going to change our world in the years to come. But because it is such a powerful technology, we have to be aware of the inherent risks that will come with those benefits, especially those that can lead to bias, harm, or widening social inequity," she said.

AI is watching: What to know about workplace surveillance


FROM Swedish retailer H&M being fined 35 million euros ($42 million) for recording employees' private data to Britain's Barclays bank accused of spying on its staff, workplace surveillance has come into the spotlight in recent months. On Wednesday, the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), the European Trade Union Confederation's research arm, said planned regulation by the European Union (EU) to improve privacy does not do enough to stop companies from snooping on their workers in the name of security and efficiency. As artificial intelligence (AI) technology becomes ever more accessible and sophisticated, here's why unions are worried: What kind of surveillance are we talking about? Employee monitoring today can involve software programmes for live monitoring, streaming and recording more than a dozen employees' computer screens at a time. Keystrokes, chat programmes, instant messaging and Skype dialogues may also be monitored and recorded in real time.

Interview with Gianluca Manzo, Computational & Analytical Sociologist


You work with a computer simulation technique called agent-based computational models. Could you explain how these work? How do you create artificial societies using this technique? In principle, the research path is straightforward. First, I identify some macroscopic patterns that I want to explain, say educational inequalities across socio-economic groups.

Luminar's CFO Aims to Conserve Cash as Company Begins Commercial Production WSJD - Technology

The transaction provided Luminar with the infusion of capital it needed to begin producing lidar sensors that use lasers to measure distances and classify objects for self-driving vehicles at a commercial scale, according to Chief Financial Officer Tom Fennimore. As a public company, however, Luminar must be mindful of how it spends the cash, he added. Luminar has positioned itself in recent years to benefit from the expected rise of autonomous vehicles. It has announced partnerships with car makers including Volvo Cars, which is owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, Daimler AG's trucks business and SAIC Motor Corp. Ltd. to incorporate its sensor technology into self-driving vehicle designs. The Morning Ledger provides daily news and insights on corporate finance from the CFO Journal team.
