Lyft, Argo AI begin robotaxi rides in Austin - The Robot Report

#artificialintelligence

Lyft has started offering autonomous robotaxi rides, with two safety drivers on board, in Austin, Texas. The autonomous drives will be powered by Argo AI's technology in Ford vehicles. Prices for the rides will also be the same as normal Lyft rides. When the vehicle arrives, riders use the Lyft app to unlock the doors and start their ride. While riders will be sharing their rides will two safety operators right now, the company aims to give fully autonomous rides in the future.


How Artificial Intelligence is being used to save whales

#artificialintelligence

Smartphones, like many consumer products, arrive in the US on giant container ships, vessels that are leading killers of endangered whales that play crucial roles in the climate and ocean health. Now a high-tech initiative called Whale Safe is detecting the huge marine mammals off the coast of San Francisco and alerting ship captains to slow down to avoid deadly collisions. Launched on Wednesday, Whale Safe aims to create "school zones" for imperiled blue whales, fin whales and humpback whales in busy shipping lanes, according to the project's managers at the Benioff Ocean Science Laboratory at the University of California at Santa Barbara and at the Bay Area's Marine Mammal Center. Speeders are caught by satellite surveillance and cited online. That gives consumers the opportunity to see, for instance, if that cruise they're contemplating is operated by a company with a history of ignoring sea speed limits.

Technology venture capital deals may be slowing down, but investment in artificial intelligence (AI) companies continues to boom. Investments in AI research and applications are set to hit $500 billion by 2024, according to research firm IDC, while PwC predicts AI will contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. So, it's no surprise that among the 206 new 2022 "unicorns" – that is, privately held startups with a value of over $1 billion – a boatload are in artificial intelligence and machine learning.


In downtown Phoenix, Waymo's driverless vehicles are available to you – Bestgamingpro

#artificialintelligence

As part of its expansion into more densely populated regions, Waymo has begun testing its autonomous cars in downtown Phoenix. These robotaxis will reportedly begin operating in downtown Phoenix in the late year of 2021, after Waymo has already begun its Trusted Tester Program. Those interested in the programme might put their names on a waiting list, submit an application, and sign a nondisclosure agreement if accepted. In an effort to make Phoenix a "more inclusive city," the queue has been lifted, allowing those who were previously excluded to take advantage of robotic drives across the metro area. With the addition of Downtown Phoenix, the Alphabet-owned firm is showing that it is confident in expanding its autonomous driving service to larger cities.


GM's Cruise Recalls Self-Driving Software Involved in June Crash

WIRED

Autonomous driving company Cruise and US regulators said on Thursday that the General Motors subsidiary had recalled software deployed on 80 vehicles after a June crash in San Francisco involving a Cruise car operating autonomously injured two people. The incident occurred one day after the state of California granted Cruise a permit to start a commercial driverless ride-hail service in the state. The flawed software was updated by early July, Cruise said in a filing with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Agency. The crash occurred when a Cruise vehicle attempting to make an unprotected left turn across a two-lane street was struck by a car that was traveling in the opposite direction and speeding in a turn lane. Cruise said in its NHTSA filing that its software had predicted that the other car would turn right and determined that it was necessary to brake hard in the midst of its own vehicle's left turn to avoid a front-end collision.


Waymo opens driverless robotaxi service in Phoenix to locals who can't share experiences online

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Waymo is rolling out its driverless robotaxi service in Phoenix for members of the Alphabet-owned company's'trusted tester' program - but users can't share their experience on social media and must sign a nondisclosure agreement. The company calls these trips'rider only' to signify that's there's no human behind the wheel and people who hail them will be ferried around in a Jaguar I-Pace EV in downtown Phoenix. Trusted testers are prohibited from sharing their experiences on social media or with journalists and they must sign a nondisclosure agreement. Waymo is rolling out its driverless robotaxi service in Phoenix for members of the Alphabet-owned company's'trusted tester' program User who participate in the trusted tester program can't share their experience on social media or with journalists and must sign a nondisclosure agreement Back in May, Waymo co-CEO Dmitri Dolgov said at a TechCrunch event that the company had begun allowing its own employees to hail rides without drivers in downtown Phoenix. Waymo has allowed local residents to apply to be trusted testers since 2017, but the service still had human safety operators behind the wheel until October 2020 when the driverless effort was officially launched.
