How artificial intelligence could design your next car

  • Artificial intelligence is set to take a key role in the design and engineering of new cars, dreaming up lighter, stronger and more complex structures than humans can envision.
  • Hack Rod, a team of designers, engineers, geeks, Hollywood insiders and stunt drivers is working on a way to harness the power of artificial intelligence in tandem with powerful design software produced by Autodesk.
  • Mike Geyer, Autodesk’s director of evangelism and emerging technology, says the generative design software uses cloud computing systems to create the best geometric shapes for any given project.
  • The next Hack Rod will more closely follow the computer’s ideal design by using 3D printing to realise Dreamcatcher’s vision for a lightweight sports car chassis.
  • Geyer says the team will then cloak it in carbon-fibre bodywork impregnated with electronic sensors that collect complex data surrounding the vehicle’s performance, which will then be fed back into the computer’s design process.

Meet the sports car imagined by computers.

Pretty Tensor: Fluent Networks in TensorFlow  #NeuralNetworks #DeepLearning

  • Pretty Tensor provides a high level builder API for TensorFlow.
  • Pretty Tensor provides a set of objects that behave likes Tensors, but also support a chainable object syntax to quickly define neural networks and other layered architectures in TensorFlow.
  • Pretty Tensors can be used (almost) everywhere that a tensor can.
  • The following method adds the leaky_relu method to every Pretty Tensor:

    is like adding a macro, it is designed to group together common sets of operations.

  • Pretty Tensor uses the standard graph collections from TensorFlow to store variables.
