Cars are learning to hear like humans and self-diagnose problems

Hear that? Your #car just did - ! 🚗 #iot #ai

  • Just like humans identify whether or not there is a problem with the car by hearing odd sounds coming from the engine or by hearing creaking sounds, cars can identify as well.
  • Their software can give cars the ability to diagnose problems themselves by simply hearing anomalous sounds coming from the car and/or the environment.
  • They are testing the tech by providing it with many sounds that come from their cars.
  • This can be a huge boost as one of the important factors of customer dissatisfaction is odd noises coming from a car and not being able to locate the problem.
  • Other than diagnosing problems, this tech can also be used to help cars in perceiving their environment.

Intelligent machines are not only trying to learn and act like humans, they are beginning to sense their environment like them as well. Latest among them are cars that are getting a sense of hearing that would allow them to enhance their intelligence level by perceiving their environment like humans do.

Now Artificial Intelligence Is Inventing Sounds That Have Never Been Heard Before

Now Artificial Intelligence Is Inventing Sounds That Have Never Been Heard Before

  • As well as beating us at board games, driving cars, and spotting cancer, artificial intelligence is now generating brand new sounds that have never been heard before, thanks to some advanced maths combined with samples from real instruments.
  • Before long, you might hear some of these fresh sounds pumping out of your radio, as the researchers responsible say they’re hoping to give musicians an almost limitless new range of computer-generated instruments to work with.
  • The new system is called NSynth, and it’s been developed by an engineering team called Google Magenta, a small part of Google’s larger push into artificial intelligence.

Designing networks for IoT sensors can be a learning process

Designing networks for IoT sensors can be a learning process | #MachineLearning #IoT #RT

  • These are just a few examples of the various Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and other connected devices in Boulder, where electrical, solar and HVAC systems are also tied into IP networks.
  • Designing a wireless network to support these applications was a learning process for the city’s IT department, says Benjamin Edelen, a senior system administrator there.
  • Aimee Schumm, e-services manager at the Boulder Public Library, notes that staff members made sure to tuck access points in places where they couldn’t be reached easily — such as inside ceiling tiles or on the ceiling itself — so they won’t be tampered with.
  • Boulder built out its wireless network with more bandwidth than it needs currently, with the expectation that it will expand its use of IoT sensors and similar technologies in the future.
  • Once the IoT sensors were in place, the various city departments generally took ownership of the data, Edelen says.

As the city of Boulder optimized its wireless network to better support IoT sensors, the city’s IT pros found it had a “significant learning curve.”

Why the Benefits of Artificial Intelligence Outweigh the Risks

Why #Benefits of Artificial Intelligence Outweigh the #Risks  #AI #Innovation #startup #tech

  • The argument against artificial intelligence (AI) is driven by fear.
  • The most realistic fear today is that AI will take people’s jobs.
  • Undoubtedly technology is taking people’s jobs in droves.
  • Google is a great example of machine learning that many people use every day and it truly does make life easier.
  • While the fear of job loss is understandable, there is another point to make: because of artificial intelligence many people are currently doing jobs that weren’t available even just a few years back.

According to Stephen Hawkings we do have reason to beware of the consequences of artificial intelligence (AI) including the possibility of the end of the human race.

Tesla will rule the car world

#Tesla will rule the car world  #machinelearning #renewables #Autonomousvehicles

  • Musk doesn’t want Tesla to be the next GM. He wants to transform the car industry.
  • But if you focus on that, you miss that the company’s total production of Teslas rose 64% year over year in 2016.
  • Tesla is betting that by giving the world default standards, it will end up profiting.
  • Tesla will rule the car world
  • True, Tesla didn’t quite make its goal of 80,000 cars in 2016 .

Some people still doubt Tesla. Elon Musk is laughing all the way to the future.
