Atlanta tests self-driving vehicle in heart of the city


The test on North Avenue in the city's bustling Midtown area meant that Atlanta has become one of the largest urban areas to test autonomous vehicles, joining Sao Paulo and Shanghai. Here's a look at some of the key aspects of the test and the issues involved: The test was aimed at showing how an autonomous vehicle would navigate in real-world traffic. On Thursday, a Tesla vehicle made multiple trips along an approximately 1-mile-long (1.6-kilometer-long) route as members of the media rode along. Cameras could provide live video of traffic, and computers could analyze data on road conditions, concerts or other events likely to clog streets.

The Cruise Generation 3 Is the World's First Production Model Self-Driving Car


In a steamy basement garage in San Francisco's Soma neighborhood, Cruise Automation CEO Kyle Vogt shows off the Generation 3, a car that looks like the electric Chevrolet Bolt, but which Vogt is calling the first production model self-driving car in the world. That's why Cruise and parent company General Motors showed off the Generation 3 on Monday, built in GM's Orion assembly plant in Michigan. That's the significance of the Generation 3 vehicle's redundant mechanical systems, steering systems, braking systems, sensors systems, and computer systems. In other words: When and if Cruise cracks the computer part, GM can scale like bananas.

Deep Learning – what is it? Why does it matter?


This is why in the image you can see that both models result in some errors with reds in the blue zone and blues in the red zone. The theory is that the more hidden layers you have the more you can isolate specific regions of data to classify things. GPU based processing allows for parallel execution, on large numbers of relatively cheap processors, especially when training an artificial neural network with many hidden layers and a lot of input data. That means having them able to understand images, understand speech, understand text etc.

This Lumbering Self-Driving Truck Is Designed to Get Hit


Such cars remain years away, of course, but you can find an autonomous vehicle saving lives on the road right now, in Colorado. It's an autonomous impact protection vehicle, which you probably know as one of those weird trucks with a big orange or yellow bumper on the back. Today, the Colorado Department of Transportation is deploying an autonomous impact protection vehicle to shake down technology that could eliminate one of the riskiest jobs on the road. Nationwide, there's a work zone crash every five minutes, according to the Federal Highway Administration--resulting in 70 injuries every day.

Intel set to roll out 100 self-driving cars

Daily Mail

Silicon Valley giant Intel on Wednesday announced plans for a fleet of self-driving cars following its completion of the purchase of Israeli autonomous technology firm Mobileye. A day after closing the $15 billion deal to buy Mobileye, which specializes in driver-assistance systems, Intel said it will begin rolling out fully autonomous vehicles later this year for testing in Europe, Israel, and the US. Silicon Valley giant Intel on Wednesday announced plans for a fleet of self-driving cars following its completion of the purchase of Israeli autonomous technology firm Mobileye. US tech giant Intel, which has completed its acquisition of Israel's Mobileye, is rolling out a fleet of self-driving vehicles for testing in the United States, Europe and Israel Self-driving cars are predicted to reduce motor accidents by 90 percent, but Intel's CEO believes the technology has more to offer than just decreasing collision rates.

Demystifying AI: Understanding the human-machine relationship


Rules are then written for the computer system to learn about all the data points and make calculations based on the rules of the road. Computer systems are programmed with machine learning algorithms and continuously learn to look at more data more quickly than any human would be able to. It might even notice lots of interactions when "Fly the Friendly Skies" ads are placed next to images of a person being brutally pulled off the plane and place more ads there! Artificial intelligence, machine learning and "self-aware systems" are real.

Artificial Intelligence vs. Machine Learning: What's the Difference


So when a machine takes decisions like an experienced human being in similarly tough situations are taken by a machine it is called artificial intelligence. You can say that machine learning is a part of artificial intelligence because it works on similar patterns of artificial intelligence. Finally in the 21st century after successful application of machine learning artificial intelligence came back in the boom. As machine learning is giving results by analyzing large data, we can assure that it is correct and useful and time required is very less.

car hacking


Millions of cars at risk as keyless entry systems can be hacked, report says Technology. Tens of millions of cars are made vulnerable to theft by their keyless entry systems, according to a report by computer security experts. They have devised two attacks: One that target cars of the Volkswagen Group (VW, Seat, Škoda, and Audi), and includes recovering the cryptographic algorithms and keys from electronic control units that allows them to clone the signal that will open the car, and Another that takes advantage of the cryptographically weak cipher in the Hitag2 rolling code scheme used by Alfa Romeo, Chevrolet, Peugeot, Lancia, Opel, Renault, Ford and other car makers. "Vehicle manufacturers expected the data/systems service providers to provide the security protection and the providers expected the manufacturers to do this" Are we really bothered though?
