Seamless cross-border 5G connectivity achieved in autonomous cars

#artificialintelligence

Swedish luxury automobile manufacturer Volvo Cars and leading ICT provider Ericsson have taken an important step towards achieving seamless cross-border 5G connectivity in vehicles. Partners in the EU-backed 5GCroCo project, the two companies successfully tested the handover of connected cars between two national mobile 5G networks. The trial took place at the AstaZero test site in Sweden. The track has testing capabilities for different traffic environments, making it possible to assess advanced safety systems for all kinds of traffic situations. It features a 5.7 km rural road, a city area, a high-speed area and a multi-lane road.

With the increase in interest in the field of AI, the demand for AI engineers has increased immensely. In this article, let's understand what an artificial intelligence engineer does, what prerequisites are, and what skills are required to be an artificial intelligence engineer, top U.S. states for AI jobs, which is the best artificial intelligence certification.


Luminar's CFO Aims to Conserve Cash as Company Begins Commercial Production

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology

The transaction provided Luminar with the infusion of capital it needed to begin producing lidar sensors that use lasers to measure distances and classify objects for self-driving vehicles at a commercial scale, according to Chief Financial Officer Tom Fennimore. As a public company, however, Luminar must be mindful of how it spends the cash, he added. Luminar has positioned itself in recent years to benefit from the expected rise of autonomous vehicles. It has announced partnerships with car makers including Volvo Cars, which is owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, Daimler AG's trucks business and SAIC Motor Corp. Ltd. to incorporate its sensor technology into self-driving vehicle designs. The Morning Ledger provides daily news and insights on corporate finance from the CFO Journal team.


NASA's Perseverance Rover Is Looking for Life on Mars

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology

NASA's latest Mars rover is done with its testing and is ready to embark upon its first scientific mission. After landing on the planet in February, the Perseverance rover has been busy trying out its many instruments--converting atmospheric carbon dioxide into oxygen that would be needed for manned missions, flying a helicopter and taking photos. Now, it will begin its mission: looking for evidence of life. Over the coming months, it will use a variety of sophisticated instruments to scan the planet's Jezero Crater for places of interest, drill into rocks and soil, and collect specimens to be retrieved and brought to Earth by future spacecraft. The rover is packed with 23 cameras, sensors, a laser and a drill-equipped robotic arm.

Artificial intelligence will likely reshape the world in the coming decades. Autonomous machines will be able to hear, see, learn, think, and make decisions. This will drive productivity and innovation across virtually every industry, from retail and robotics to marketing and mobility. From an investor's perspective, these technologies will also create incredible wealth. In fact, research from Ark Invest indicates that AI will add $30 trillion to global equity by 2037.


Tesla unveils its new supercomputer (5th most powerful in the world) to train self-driving AI - Electrek

#artificialintelligence

Tesla has unveiled its new supercomputer, which is already the fifth most powerful in the world, and it's going to be the predecessor of Tesla's upcoming new Dojo supercomputer. It is being used to train the neural nets powering Tesla's Autopilot and upcoming self-driving AI. Over the last few years, Tesla has had a clear focus on computing power both inside and outside its vehicles. Inside, it needs computers powerful enough to run its self-driving software, and outside, it needs supercomputers to train its self-driving software powered by neural nets that are fed an insane amount of data coming from the fleet. CEO Elon Musk has been teasing Tesla's Dojo project, which apparently consists of a supercomputer capable of an exaFLOP, one quintillion (1018) floating-point operations per second, or 1,000 petaFLOPS – making it one of the most powerful computers in the world.


Tesla Launches World's Fifth Most Powerful Computer For AI Training Ahead Of Dojo Project

International Business Times

Tesla just launched the world's fifth most powerful computer responsible for neural network AI training ahead of the anticipated Dojo supercomputer debut. Tesla seemingly does not run out of new features to unveil for its followers. As the public patiently awaits the Dojo supercomputer launch, the company surprisingly unveiled another breakthrough in technology. The company launched the supercomputer to train the neural nets that power the Tesla autopilot. It is also intended for training the upcoming self-driving Artificial Intelligence, Electrek reported.


NASA's Insight Mars lander is not getting power and could end its mission in the less than a year

Daily Mail - Science & tech

NASA's InSight lander is struggling to retain power as it explores Mars as dust is accumulating on its solar panels, which could result in its mission ending within the next year. The American space agency announced Tuesday that 80 percent of the solar panels are obstructed by dust, leaving less than 700 watt-hours of power per Martian day. It was hoped that winds would clean the lander and allow it to continue to collect seismic data on its extended mission, which was supposed to last until the end of 2022. NASA attempted to remove dust from the top on InSight earlier this month using the lander's robotic arm, which trickled sand near one solar panel with the hopes wind would carry off the panel's dust. NASA's InSight lander is struggling to retain power as it explores Mars due to Martian dust accumulating on its solar panels, which could result in its mission within the next year The death of InSight was discussed at a June 21 meeting of NASA's Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group, SpaceNews reports.

The next digital frontier in the IT world is? The one that is your opponent in PUBG(or other interactive games), that allows you to ask Google to make calls for you, that reminds you to make your insurance paid, suggests what to purchase from your favorite eCommerce site, and suggests movies over Netflix. We are surrounded by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications so extensively that we don't even realize their presence. When Facebook recommends friends or groups to you, it is AI working behind the scenes. When Google listens to you and acts as per your command, it's ML and AI working.
