The Growing Need for Skills in Artificial Intelligence


We are seeing Artificial Intelligence (AI) used in all areas of life and work. Because of the continued growth in and demand for skills in AI, we need to provide opportunities for all students to learn about and understand how AI works. Dave Touretzky, the founder of AI4K12 had stated: "It's important that children be given accurate information about AI so they can understand the technology that is reshaping our lives." Artificial intelligence is increasing in all areas of our world and a recent Forbes article shared five industries that are seeing increased benefits from artificial intelligence. There is a prediction that there will be 33 million self-driving cars on the road by 2040.

Protecting Autonomous Cars from Phantom Attacks

Communications of the ACM

Early computer vision studies aimed at developing computerized driver intelligence appeared in the mid-1980s when scientists first demonstrated a road-following robot.36 Studies performed from the mid-1980s until 2000 established the fundamentals for automated driver intelligence in related tasks, including detection of pedestrians,39 lanes,3 and road signs.9 However, the vast majority of initial computer vision algorithms aimed at detecting objects required developers to manually program dedicated features. The increase in computational power available in recent years changed the way AI models are created: Features are automatically extracted by training various neural network architectures on raw data. Automatic feature extraction outperformed and replaced the traditional approach of manually programming an object's features.

Growing Application of Artificial Intelligence in End Use Sectors


Automotive: Autonomous cars are as inherent to the vision of the future as space travel and holograms. Automobiles have been seen as the final leading edge of technological innovation. In the meantime, artificial intelligence has slowly begun to transform the vehicles through integrated innovations such as preventing accidents through risk assessment and driver monitoring, personalized vehicles, and in-car assistance. The impact of technology on automobiles and the entire automotive sector will expand in the coming years with the increasing penetration of AI for different operations. Moreover, neural networks and specific algorithms are used in autonomous vehicles to collect data, analyze objects, and make accurate decisions on the road.

Is solid-state LiDAR the key to autonomous driving?


The technology for autonomous vehicles has been around for a while, and major automakers and tech companies worldwide have invested billions of dollars in making it a reality. But according to industry analysts, it will be years before the automotive industry evolves to the point where most driving conditions can be handled by vehicles entirely independently without human intervention. Real-life situations, including making split-second decisions, dealing with quickly changing weather, and being able to see another motorist at a crosswalk, are best left to an attentive driver. Technology may be very useful; in some cases, when used appropriately, some of the modern automobile assist systems can even save lives. But driving is challenging; there are many types of roads, lanes, and weather conditions, so taking the same course of action is only sometimes the best.

The Engineer - rFpro: The advanced simulation technology training tomorrow's vehicles


If you've been out on the roads lately, the chances are you were being watched. We may still be some way away from the sci fi vision of fully self-driving passenger cars, but just about every new car now uses some degree of electronic sensing to perceive its environment. Training and calibrating these systems – many of which employ some degree of artificial intelligence – is a mammoth task. And it's only getting more complex as the systems evolve, with potentially millions of different scenarios to consider. Simulation specialist rFpro believes it has achieved a major breakthrough with its new ray tracing rendering technology.

fully autonomous electric car uses artificial intelligence to drive itself on the road


A self-driving electric car uses artificial intelligence imaging and scanning to drive around highways and cities. The Japanese electric car developer Turing has unveiled its driverless EV whose car concept lets AI makes driving decisions while it cruises on the road. The camera on board, alongside sensors and dynamic maps, of the car design gathers the views it receives while driving. Based on the information detected, the car operates the steering wheel on its own and drives itself on public roads without the passengers' help. Turning to AI has always been the car's concept, and in 2022, the technology team was able to pool a driving data base amounting to 500 hours for its AI-driven system.

GM studying artificial intelligence assistant that could answer driver questions


General Motors is studying the possibility of an artificial intelligence voice assistant in future vehicles, according to the company. GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra, who was asked for details Tuesday by Fox Business channel anchor Liz Claman, referenced the company's Ultifi "end-to-end" vehicle software platform. "It's one of many things we can put on the vehicle. The vehicle really is a software platform and starting in 2019, General Motors started rolling out vehicles where you could do over-the-air updates for almost every module in the vehicle," Barra said, in an interview that touched on artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles and a current production shutdown tied to supply chain issues at one of GM's truck plants. "Having an assistant with a voice that's clear enough where you can ask questions and get answers, I think that's what the artificial intelligence will enable us to do," Barra said, noting that "we'll be able to make your car better as you own it."

Self-driving skillset – game theory for autonomous vehicles


Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques such as deep learning play a key role in enabling self-driving vehicles – for example, helping with feature extraction and object classification. AI can turn a fusion of camera, LiDAR, and automotive radar data into meaningful navigation information. But there are other tools that can help the decision-making process, such as game theory for autonomous vehicles. Game theory may be in the shadow of recent breakthroughs in AI, but its automotive future could turn out to be a very bright one indeed. Groups around the world have been busy looking at game theory for autonomous vehicles, and the list of potential applications is a long one.

Next-generation Zipline P2 Zip drone comes with an adorable 'droid' sidekick


In 2013, former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos predicted Prime Air, the company's then newly announced drone delivery unit, would be flying within four to five years. A decade later, the service appears to be no closer to reality than it was in 2018. However, some drone startups have had more success. Among those is Zipline, which says it's on track to complete about 1 million deliveries by the end of the year. By 2025, the company expects to operate more flights than most airlines, a feat it intends to accomplish thanks to its next-generation drone, the Platform 2 or P2 Zip. Zipline's latest drone consists of two autonomous vehicles that will work in unison with one another to deliver packages that weigh up to 8 pounds.
