Artificial intelligence is becoming a centralised part of our everyday lives, even if we don't realise it. In fact, half of the people who encounter AI don't know they are doing so.


5 Innovative Uses for Machine Learning

Is Facebook Building An Autonomous Car?

#artificialintelligence

Today at the Frankfurt motor show, one of the biggest and most prestigious motor shows in the world, Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, spoke before German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Now what is Facebook and most importantly, Sheryl Sandberg doing at an automotive industry event? The obvious answer that comes to mind when one relates Facebook and the car industry is the billions of advertising dollars the industry spends on marketing and advertising. However, that does not seem to be Facebook's game plan, as highlighted by Sheryl and shown at their pavilion. Facebook seems to have a strategy of leveraging its capabilities in social marketing, AR & VR and interestingly, who would have thought of it, leveraging its advanced AI and deep learning capabilities to support the development of autonomous vehicles.


Charged EVs Online energy management for PHEVs claims 30% improvement in fuel efficiency

#artificialintelligence

Engineers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) have developed a new online energy management system (EMS) that they say can improve PHEV fuel efficiency by more than 30%. In "Development and Evaluation of an Evolutionary Algorithm-Based Online Energy Management System for Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles," published in IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, Xuewei Qi and colleagues explain that improving the efficiency of current PHEVs is limited by shortfalls in their energy management systems (EMS), which control the power split between engine and battery. In general, existing EMS for PHEVs are either rule-based systems, which use a set of predefined rules, or optimization-based, which can adapt according to driving conditions and driver behavior. However, notes the UCR team, most systems have only limited adaptability to real-time information. "In reality, drivers may switch routes, traffic can be unpredictable, and road conditions may change, meaning that the EMS must source that information in real-time," Qi said.


Company Designs Driverless Car Deep Learning Kit

Drive.ai is a Silicon Valley startup working on a kit to retrofit your ride If Drive.ai is a success, your first self-driving car might already be parked in the driveway. The Silicon Valley start-up, founded recently by a team of former Stanford University Artificial Intelligence Lab products, is working on a software kit that can be used to retrofit existing vehicles. "We started Drive.ai because we believe there's a real opportunity to make our roads, our commutes, and our families safer," the company announced in a statement on its blog, citing a statistic that more than one million people die each year worldwide in automobile accidents caused by human error. At its foundation, Drive.ai is looking to use deep learning -- which its founders consider the most effective form of artificial intelligence ever developed -- to key a breakthrough in a field that giant companies such as Google and General Motors have been trying to master for years. "Unlike other forms of AI, which involve programming many sets of rules, a deep learning algorithm learns more like a human brain.


Israeli company developing system to allow cars to learn how to drive through experience

This means that programmers must account for every type of road situation a car may encounter. MIT's Technology Review spoke with Amnon Shashua, CTO and cofounder of the technology firm to learn more about the initiative. Mobileye has been in the news of late for another reason--its system was the one being used by the Tesla vehicle that was involved in a car crash in Florida recently--the incident is still under investigation by the NHTSA. Tesla publicly blamed Mobileye, and because of that, a rift developed between the companies, which are now no longer partners. Shashua does not believe that will harm the company's new initiative, though--building a system based on neural networking, which, if all goes according to plan, will allow a car or truck to learn how to drive in much the same way that humans do.


Artificial Intelligence: The Race Is On to Smarten Our Cars

#artificialintelligence

Uber's Pittsburgh Experiment, featuring semi-autonomous vehicles, is up and running. If only its fleet could distinguish the proper path down a one-way street. And Google is reporting smashing results for its autonomous vehicle program. This is a public service alert for all you Yinzers out there: Get off the road; you're in danger. While we're at it, to unemployed tech bros desperate to get a foot in the Silicon Valley door: Don't take a gig as a Google autonomous vehicle test driver.


Waze for War: How the Army Can Integrate Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Protests in the ethnic Russian enclave in Riga, Latvia have NATO on edge. Russian units in the Western Military District are on alert conducting snap exercises involving autonomous ground and air attack systems. The Russian president makes a speech promising to protect ethnic Russians wherever they are with military forces if necessary. In response, a U.S. Army brigade combat team bolstered by intelligence, air defense, and aviation support elements from U.S. Army Europe deploys. Their mission is to reassure Latvian forces, deter Russian aggression, and if necessary conduct a mobile defense.


Artificial Intelligence Trends Investors Need to Watch -- The Motley Fool

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming the backbone of many software features and services we use everyday. Anytime you search for specific image in Google Photos or read through Facebook's (NASDAQ:FB) NewsFeed, you're using a form of AI software and algorithms. These are just small AI examples, but there are much larger artificial intelligence trends that are changing how we drive our cars, use energy, answer questions, and connect with others. The companies behind these AI trends are pushing the technology forward like never before, and they (and their investors) could see major benefits just around the corner. Driverless cars are coming, there's no debating that.
