Privacy fears over artificial intelligence as crimestopper

Daily Mail

Police in the US state of Delaware are poised to deploy'smart' cameras in cruisers to help authorities detect a vehicle carrying a fugitive, missing child or straying senior. The video feeds will be analyzed using artificial intelligence to identify vehicles by license plate or other features and'give an extra set of eyes' to officers on patrol, says David Hinojosa of Coban Technologies, the company providing the equipment. 'We are helping officers keep their focus on their jobs,' said Hinojosa, who touts the new technology as a'dashcam on steroids.' The program is part of a growing trend to use vision-based AI to thwart crime and improve public safety, a trend which has stirred concerns among privacy and civil liberties activists who fear the technology could lead to secret'profiling' and misuse of data. US-based startup Deep Science is using the same technology to help retail stores detect in real time if an armed robbery is in progress, by identifying guns or masked assailants.


Creepy video shows AI-made faces of 'fake' celebrities

Daily Mail

They may look like they came straight from the cover of a magazine, but these images show'famous' people who don't actually exist. Scientists have combined a pair of artificial intelligence systems to generate photo-realistic faces of fake celebrities. In an eerie video showing the process, faces can be seen shifting and warping as the networks gradually tweak each feature over the course of 20 days. The system, developed by researchers at US microchip maker Nvidia, used a new type of algorithm called a a generative adversarial network (GAN). Artificial neural networks are systems designed to think like the human brain, and in a GAN two of the networks are pitted against one another.


NVIDIA unveils platform for fully autonomous cars

Daily Mail

The Pegasus line will be available by the middle of 2018 for automakers to begin developing vehicles and testing software algorithms needed to control future driverless cars, NVIDIA executives told a developers' conference in Munich on Tuesday. The deal between Deutsche Post, ZF and NVIDIA will include future Deutsche Post StreetScooter delivery trucks. In Munich, the three partners are showcasing a prototype StreetScooter running NVIDIA Drive PX chips used to control sensors including six cameras, one radar and one lidar, or 3D laser camera. De Ambroggi said NVIDIA's Pegasus automotive platform was the first with the processing power for automakers to begin developing truly autonomous vehicles, which could be upgraded with software improvements ahead of actual roadway deployments.


Watch a Roborace's driverless car zooming around a track

Daily Mail

Roborace CEO Denis Sverdlov said the demonstration was a major milestone in the development of autonomous racing: 'Roborace is the only company in the world right now testing driverless technologies on city streets without a human in the car – this is something truly unique.' These include five lidars, two radars, 18 ultrasonic sensors, two optical speed sensors, six AI cameras, GNSS positioning and a powerful Nvidia Drive PX2 'brain' processor, capable of 24 trillion AI operations per second. Roborace first revealed the stunning 4.8-metre-long (15.7 ft), two-metre-wide (6.5 ft) vehicle at February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Roborace first revealed the stunning 4.8-metre-long (15.7 ft), two-metre-wide (6.5 ft) vehicle at March's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The futuristic vehicle completed a lap of the Paris ePrix circuit (pictured) ahead of the city's 2017 Formula E race, which took place on Saturday Saturday's public demonstration saw the car whip around 14 turns of the almost 2 kilometre (1.2 mile) track driven entirely by AI and sensors Mr Sverdlov said: 'This is a huge moment for Roborace as we share the Robocar with the world and take another big step in advancing driverless electric technology. Technologies guiding the vehicle include five lidars, two radars, 18 ultrasonic sensors, two optical speed sensors, six AI cameras, GNSS positioning and a powerful Nvidia Drive PX2 'brain' processor, capable of 24 trillion AI operations per second Mr Simon said: 'Roborace opens a new dimension where motorsport as we know it meets the unstoppable rise of artificial intelligence.


New AI will team up with CCTV to predict your every move

Daily Mail

The company's'Metropolis' intelligent video analytics system combines always-on CCTV with complex machine learning artificial intelligence. Nvidia's Metropolis is an intelligent video analytics platform that can process footage from over a billion security cameras looking for patterns and usable data. This would include facial recognition, vehicle recognition, and road and pedestrian traffic patterning.

Daily Mail

The world of car racing is set to get a futuristic update with the unveiling of the world's first driverless electric race car. Roborace revealed the stunning vehicle, dubbed'Robocar' today at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Two of the Robocars will go head to head in a race later this year, setting up the potential for a race series dedicated to driverless cars. Roborace revealed the stunning vehicle, dubbed'Robocar' today at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona The Robocar weighs 975 kilograms, and measures 4.8 metres long and two metres wide. Four motors, each with 300kW and a 540kW battery allow the car to reach dizzy speeds of over 320kph (200mph).
