Self-driving vehicles planned for UK roads by 2025, but public trust is an issue

ZDNet

The UK government says that driverless vehicles could be on UK roads by 2025 and has announced a £100 million ( $119m) package to fund research on safety developments. The government's plans could see cars, coaches and lorries with self-driving features on motorways in the next year, with new legislation in the pipeline to allow the safe wider rollout of driverless vehicles by 2025. It has also started a consultation on a "safety ambition" proposal that would require a self-driving vehicle to be "as safe as a competent and careful human driver", according to the Department of Transport's announcement. The government hopes to fast-track new legislation addressing insurance and liability so that manufacturers -- and not drivers -- are responsible for crashes when the vehicle is in self-driving mode. However, The UK government's Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CDEI) related Responsible Innovation in Self-Driving Vehicles report, indicates a long and complex road ahead if the public is to trust self-driving vehicles and the rules governing their use.


This robot quarterback could be the future of football practice

Washington Post - Technology News

The Seeker's software allows players to customize how they practice with it. Athletes can catch balls from close to the machine to improve hand-eye coordination. They can also program the robot to throw a ball at a specific spot on the field, or simulate more lifelike conditions by over or under-throwing a ball. Players wear a pager-like tag which allows the robot to track their location on the field, and throw a ball accurately within inches.


Antibody optimization enabled by artificial intelligence predictions of binding affinity and naturalness

#artificialintelligence

Traditional antibody optimization approaches involve screening a small subset of the available sequence space, often resulting in drug candidates with suboptimal binding affinity, developability or immunogenicity. Based on two distinct antibodies, we demonstrate that deep contextual language models trained on high-throughput affinity data can quantitatively predict binding of unseen antibody sequence variants. These variants span a KD range of three orders of magnitude over a large mutational space. Our models reveal strong epistatic effects, which highlight the need for intelligent screening approaches. In addition, we introduce the modeling of "naturalness", a metric that scores antibody variants for similarity to natural immunoglobulins.

Running machine learning in production can require significant compute, particularly for deep learning #neuralnetwork models like NLP and #computervision. Currently data centers consume about 5% of the world's energy but that share could quadruple or even octuple as enterprises embrace compute-intensive AI/ML. When we rebuilt our ML engine from the ground up using #rustlang, our goal was for customers to run their boldest models at C speeds without requiring data teams to change the platforms or frameworks they used for building and training models, but it has also led to outsized efficiency gains with major #esg implications.


AI-based kit aids Project Theseus for automated logistics

#artificialintelligence

Rheinmetall Canada is supplying an AI-powered navigation system for the Project Theseus automated logistics programme in the UK. The company claimed in a 16 August statement that the'first systems have already been delivered' under a contract from the UK MoD for Project Theseus 2.2 that was awarded in February 2022. Prime contractor Rheinmetall Canada is working with its robotics division Rheinmetall Provectus and Polaris Government and Defense to equip 11 Polaris MRZR D4 lightweight tactical vehicles with the Rheinmetall PATH Autonomy Kit (A-kit) AI-powered navigation system. 'The project marks the first installation of the PATH A-kit on an MRZR D4,' Rheinmetall Canada stated. 'This requires Rheinmetall to meet a new set of technical demands, further proving the PATH's total adaptability.'
