'Flying COWs' could bridge the digital divide by turning 5G hype into help


It's hard to get excited about 5G. But an AT&T drone with an endearing acronym might make naysayers change their minds. Since 2018, telecom evangelists and heavy corporate marketing have been preaching the 5G revolution like it's the advent of a messiah: Life-altering high-speed downloads are just around the corner. Your unwavering devotion to that expensive service plan will be rewarded. But the revolution hasn't come...yet.

4 Companies Leading The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence And Big Data


The article highlights four companies in the Global X Artificial Intelligence & Technology ETF (AIQ) that are shaping the growth path of technologies along the AI value chain.

Hyundai launches $400-million Boston Dynamics AI institute


The Hyundai Motor Group bought a controlling share in Boston Dynamics for US$800 million back in 2020, impressed by the potential of its array of world-leading humanoid, quadrupedal and other robots. Now it's investing half that again to develop AI. Hyundai is founding a new Boston Dynamics AI Institute, headquartered in the Kendall Square research precinct in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Institute's core research areas will be athletic AI, organic hardware design ... and yes, cognitive AI. There will also be research into the less-technical – but very important – areas of ethics and policy, as they intersect with this highly-charged space.

How Autonomous Driving is Transforming Automotive Industry?


Summary: Autonomous driving is a hot topic that has gained immense popularity -- but is it an actual concept. If yes, what are the probabilities that it brings along as it sounds oxymoron? Let's understand the challenges of autonomous driving and how agile technology can play an important role in bringing this concept to reality. Autonomous driving is a new concept, and everyone is excited to know about driverless vehicles. The technology is undergoing testing in several areas; the picture is not clear yet. Autonomous vehicles rely on sensors, machine learning systems, artificial intelligence technology, processors, and complex algorithms.

Elon Musk drops details about Tesla's humanoid robot


Tesla is set to unveil a new humanoid robot, called Optimus, in late September. There's been a lot of speculation surrounding Tesla's strategy in entering the robotics market, and a recent post by boss Elon Musk sheds some new light. In the post, published in the China's Cyberspace Administration's official publication, Musk continued to make the point he's underlined since announcing the Tesla Bot project in 2021: That Tesla, because of its major investments in autonomous driving, is arguably the biggest robotics company in the world. While some of the big robotics players like ABB might take exception to the classification, it's a fair point. The company's efforts have focused on machines with wheels, but is it really a far leap to put the same technology into a bipedal humanoid?

Baidu's Apollo Go Launches Pilot Autonomous Driving Services in Hefei - Pandaily


In the future, operation routes and recommended pick-up points will continue to be expanded. The vehicles launched by Apollo Go this time have 46 safety guarantee technologies and 59 travel service designs, and they have redundancy of all sensors and computing units, which greatly improves the safety. At the same time, they are equipped with innovative functions such as independent control of four door locks, voice interaction and intelligent doors. The city of Hefei has provided policy support for the commercial pilot business of Apollo Go. In March this year, the city issued the Management Specification for Road Test and Demonstration Application of Intelligent Vehicles in Hefei, providing policy guarantees for road testing of intelligent vehicles.

Alibaba Cloud, Deloitte set up China facility to drive automotive applications


Alibaba Cloud and Deloitte China have teamed up to launch a facility that focuses on developing applications for the automotive sector. The new centre looks to tap a market they say will be home to the world's largest autonomous vehicle industry by 2035. Called Deloitte-Alibaba Cloud Auto Industry Center, the new site will develop applications that include autonomous driving, smart manufacturing, and digital marketing, the two partners said in a joint statement Tuesday. The centre will be supported by Deloitte China's automotive cloud services team that specialises in products and and services that encompass digital supply chain, intelligent network connectivity, and cybersecurity. Alibaba's cloud computing resources spanning artificial intelligence (AI) and networking also will be tapped.

Last Week in AI #174: Cerebras sets record for largest AI model on one device, open source large language model, robotaxis paralyzed, and more!


Cerebras Systems, with its latest WSE-2 chip, has set the record for the largest AI model ever trained on a single device. The chip, which has 850k cores and 2.6 trillion transistors, is much larger than the largest GPUs. It has 123x more cores, 1k times more memory, and 12k times more bandwidth than the largest GPU. This allowed Cerebras to train a 20 billion parameter neural network model on a single chip. Doing so with GPUs would require complex compute cluster engineering and management, which could be much more expensive and only doable at large tech companies.
