The automobile is being dismantled, reimagined, and rebuilt in Silicon Valley. Intel's proposed $15.3 billion acquisition of Mobileye, an Israeli company that supplies carmakers with a computer-vision technology and advanced driver assistance systems, offers a chance to measure the scale of this rebuild. In particular, it shows how valuable on-the-road data is likely to be in the evolution of automated driving. While the price tag might seem steep, especially with so many players in automated driving today, Mobileye has some key technological strengths and strategic advantages. It's also developing new technologies that could help solidify this position.
As a designer, you will be facing more demands and opportunities to work with digital systems that embody machine learning. As a designer, you will be facing more demands and opportunities to work with digital systems that embody machine learning. This will help with making actual design decisions and identifying the right design patterns, including situations when no directly applicable solution exists and you must transfer ideas across domains. In rare cases, machine learning might enable a computer to perform tasks that humans simply can't perform because of speed requirements or the scale of data.
I am spending some cycles on my algorithmic rotoscope work -- which is basically a stationary exercise bicycle for my learning about what is and what is not Machine Learning. I am using it to help me understand and tell stories about Machine Learning by creating images using Machine Learning that I can use in my Machine Learning storytelling. Picture a bunch of Machine Learning gears all working together to help make sense of what I'm doing, and WTF I am talking about? As I'm writing a story on how image style transfer Machine Learning could be put to use by libraries, museums, and collection curators, I'm reminded of what a con machine learning will be in the future, and how it will be a vehicle for the extraction of value and outright theft. My image style transfer work is just one tiny slice of this pie.
Intel's proposed $15.3 billion acquisition of Mobileye, an Israeli company that supplies carmakers with a computer-vision technology and advanced driver assistance systems, offers a chance to measure the scale of this rebuild. The company's vision systems are a simple, low-cost solution that offers surprisingly sophisticated sensing. This involves capturing images as cars drive around, and annotating them to identify things like road markings, traffic signs, other vehicles, and pedestrians. Stephen Zoepf, executive director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford, agrees that Intel's acquisition of Mobileye shows how critical data and machine learning are to the auto industry's future.
