Timnit Gebru and the fight to make artificial intelligence work for Africa

#artificialintelligence

The way Timnit Gebru sees it, the foundations of the future are being built now. In Silicon Valley, home to the world's biggest tech companies, the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution is already well under way. Software is being written and algorithms are being trained that will determine the shape of our lives for decades or even centuries to come. If the tech billionaires get their way, the world will run on artificial intelligence. Cars will drive themselves and computers will diagnose and cure diseases. Art, music and movies will be automatically generated.


La veille de la cybersécurité

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has advanced greatly in the past decade. On my phone, I'm reading Apple and Google news that is well-tailored to me, thanks to AI recommendation models. Self-driving cars are already picking up passengers for rides in downtown San Francisco. The same transformation is happening in the cybersecurity world too. However, questions remain: Will AI replace security professionals?


How AI Is Useful -- and Not Useful -- for Cybersecurity

12 Companies turning AI Robots Into Real Life Wins

#artificialintelligence

It's a scenario movies and sci-fi stories have predicted for years: an intelligent fleet of human-serving AI robots become too smart and take over the world. This common storyline has some people worried it will come to real-world fruition -- thanks to technological developments in artificial intelligence and robotics. For many others, though, applying intelligence to robotics is all about furthering innovation. And innovation there has been. Robotics dates back to 1898, when Nikola Tesla used radio waves to remotely direct the movement of a robot boat in a miniature man-made pond during an electrical exhibition at Madison Square Garden in New York. That experiment led to Tesla becoming the father of robotics.


The 30 top artificial intelligence companies most well founded

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is currently one of the most disruptive technologies, and it is a great means for startups to achieve their hyper-growth goals. Artificial intelligence has numerous applications in fields such as big data, computer vision, and natural language processing, and is revolutionizing businesses, industries, and people's lives. Among the most well-funded and promising independent startups, the majority of the top Artificial Intelligence companies are from the US or China, with many more countries participating. The benefits of AI in many industries are evident in these two key countries, but each country seems to have slightly different concerns. The largest AI startups in the U.S. are particularly present in the areas of big data analytics and process automation for business, autonomous driving and biotechnology.


Uber Eats delivery goes fully autonomous

ZDNet

Greg Nichols covers robotics, AI, and AR/VR for ZDNet. A full-time journalist and author, he writes about tech, travel, crime, and the economy for global media outlets and reports from across the U. Uber Eats is turning to autonomous vehicles in a major market. Along with AV partner Motional, the third-party delivery platform will be launching a new autonomous delivery experience in Santa Monica, California. Deliveries will be conducted in Motional's IONIQ 5 vehicles, which are capable of operating autonomously. Participating restaurants bring packaged orders to the curb and place them inside a locking compartment.


Uber Eats trials autonomous 'sidewalk robots' to deliver food to people's doorsteps

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Uber has unveiled plans to trial autonomous'sidewalk robots' to deliver food to people's doorsteps. The US ride-hailing giant announced the idea as part of a raft of new features and services for its customers. These included an option for those in certain cities to specifically request a ride in an electric car, which Uber said was part of its global commitment to becoming a zero-emissions mobility platform by 2040. Comfort Electric is now available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Dubai, with more cities to come soon. The sidewalk robot concept is one of two autonomous delivery pilot programs being trialled in California.


Forget rideshares, Uber will rent you a party bus

Engadget

Uber continues to show that it has grand ambitions that go far beyond the ride-sharing service that it first became known for. At the company's second annual, product-focused Go/Get event, Uber announced a host of new features focused primarily on expanding its offerings in both the travel and delivery categories. Travel may sound obvious, given Uber's background, but probably the most notable new offering is simply called Uber Travel; its focus is helping you get around when you're not in your home city. It's an integration with Gmail that can pull details out of your inbox like hotel, flight and restaurant reservations and group it together in the Uber app. The point, of course, is that you can then schedule rides for each of these events, and Uber will give 10 percent back in Uber Cash when you do.


Uber Eats is launching two autonomous delivery pilots today in Los Angeles

Engadget

Uber Eats is launching not just one but two autonomous delivery pilots today in Los Angeles, TechCrunch has reported. The first is via an autonomous vehicle partnership with Motional, originally announced in December, and the second is with sidewalk delivery firm Serve Robotics, a company that spun out of Uber itself. The trials will be limited, with deliveries from just a few merchants including the Kreation juicery and organic cafe. Serve will do short delivery routes in West Hollywood, while Motional will take care of longer deliveries in Santa Monica. "We'll be able to learn from both of those pilots what customers actually want, what merchants actually want and what makes sense for delivery," an Uber spokesperson told TechCrunch.


Self-Driving Cars Could Get Safer Thanks to These 3 Tech Developments

#artificialintelligence

Self-driving cars are one of the most hotly debated topics when it comes to vehicle safety. Plenty of companies are using autonomous vehicles for various purposes. However, most Americans don't think they're all that safe. Additionally, with videos showing the faults of some of these systems, it's easy to see the hesitation. So, it will undoubtedly get better over time.
