NVIDIAVoice: AI Is Enabling Our Need For Speed And Safety In Racecar Driving

#artificialintelligence

The racing industry is on the fast track to driverless racecars, thanks to AI. At the center of this evolution is Roborace, the world's first autonomous racing competition. Conceived by renowned car designer Daniel Simon -- a former Bugatti designer who's gone on to create various cars for Hollywood -- the "Robocar" is designed, developed, and built by the Roborace organization. Teams compete by writing the software and developing deep neural networks that consume the sensor data to see, think, and act. The cars -- which are 4.8-meters-long -- can reach speeds of over 300 kilometers per hour.


Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning In A GRC World

#artificialintelligence

But what does it mean, and more importantly, what might it mean for you in the future? First, let's get on the same page in case you are one of the many who looks up most acronyms these days because acronyms appear and disappear so quickly. "A branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers (…machine to imitate intelligent human behavior)" "A field of computer science that uses statistical techniques to give computer systems the ability to'learn' (e.g., progressively improve performance of a specific task) with data, without being explicitly programmed" Another related term is "expert system," closely related to both AI and ML, which uses a knowledge base of expert information plus an inference engine to make decisions and solve complex problems. The Merriam-Webster definition of AI (specifically, "…machine to imitate intelligent human behavior") did put a smile on my face as I contemplated whether a computer imitating stupid human behavior would qualify as artificial intelligence, or do we also need a definition for artificial stupidity? You may think I'm kidding, but it's only a slight exaggeration if you realize that some of the current buzz around Google Duplex and Assistant emphasizes a computer agent that can imitate the voice, pauses, and false starts inherent in human communication.


Here's How Microsoft Is Investing in AI

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is in the middle of a massive transition right now, but you may not have noticed. That's because the company is moving effortlessly into the burgeoning artificial intelligence (AI) market -- and it's bringing its legacy products and services along with it. Over the past few years, Microsoft has successfully been building new features into its Office products and launching new AI-powered tools through its Azure cloud-computing service as the company looks beyond its Windows products to the fast-growing AI market. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said recently that AI is the "defining technology of our times," and he's probably right. AI has the capability to alter how we drive our cars, it will help automate our factories, it will both create and kill jobs, it can be used in warfare, and it's already being used to help improve our healthcare.


Ai/Machine learning: (Senior) Expert Computer Vision at BMW AG (Munich, Germany)

#artificialintelligence

Expert Computer Vision at BMW AG Munich, Germany (Posted Jun 18 2018) About the company BMW Group vehicles are the epitome of innovation, combining cutting-edge technologies with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and processes. We are always looking for talent from a broad range of disciplines to help us realise our visions and drive automotive progress. Whether in research, development or production, an exciting working environment defined by challenges, responsibilities and rewards awaits software developers, IT specialists, engineers, mechatronic engineers and electrical engineers. Graduates of other disciplines, such as business administration, law and the arts also make a valuable contribution to the company. What matters more than the area of expertise is passion and enthusiasm to bring high-quality vehicles to the road.


TradeRev-H uses machine learning to aid inspections

#artificialintelligence

TradeRev-H, an enhanced version of ADESA's TradeRev app for one-hour online auctions, seeks to tap machine learning to change how vehicle inspections are done. KAR Auction Services Inc. unveiled the enhancements to TradeRev, based in North York, Ont., near Toronto, in March before the NADA Show. KAR Auction Services Inc. in October 2017 acquired full ownership of the Canada-based TradeRev technology that allows dealers to electronically bid on and purchase used vehicles before they reach physical auctions. To indicate that the technology is groundbreaking, the "H" is for Grace Hopper, a U.S. Navy rear admiral credited with developing the precursor to the Common Business Oriented Language, or COBOL, computer- programming language. "For any digital remarketing channel, the visual condition report is key," said Peter Kelly, KAR's chief technology officer.

Relax, Google, the Robot Army Isn't Here Yet

#artificialintelligence

People can differ on their perceptions of "evil." People can also change their minds. Still, it's hard to wrap one's head around how Google, famous for its "don't be evil" company motto, dealt with a small Defense Department contract involving artificial intelligence. Facing a backlash from employees, including an open letter insisting the company "should not be in the business of war," Google in April grandly defended involvement in a project "intended to save lives and save people from having to do highly tedious work." Less than two months later, chief executive officer Sundar Pichai announced that the contract would not be renewed, writing equally grandly that Google would shun AI applications for "weapons or other technologies whose principal purpose or implementation is to cause or directly facilitate injury to people."


Army researchers develop A.I. tech that helps U.S. soldiers learn 13x faster than conventional methods

#artificialintelligence

A Phys.org article states that Army researchers are making huge strides in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) that can support U.S. soldiers on the battlefield. Their latest development is an affordable yet capable AI assistant that can reportedly help human troops learn more than 13 times faster than normal training methods. Featuring vastly improved machine learning capabilities, the AI will be installed upon the Army's future ground combat vehicles. It is intended to help a human soldier spot important clues, recognize the developing situation, and come up with a solution to the problem on the fly. The AI would reportedly help preserve American lives during the chaos of combat.


Three Impacts Of Artificial Intelligence On Society

#artificialintelligence

Over the next five years, we are about to witness the world we live in entirely disrupted by improvements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Children today are growing up with AI assistants in their homes (Google Assistant, Siri and Alexa) -- to the point that you might consider their mere presence an extension of co-parenting. As voice and facial recognition continue to evolve, machine learning algorithms are getting smarter. More and more industries are being influenced by AI, and our society as we know it is transforming. The transportation industry looks like it will be the first to be completely disrupted by artificial intelligence.
