Tesla Autonomous Trucking Fleet Could Create the Most Important Supply Line in America  #AI

  • The batteries, which are manufactured from lithium, will come from Tesla’s Gigafactory.
  • Despite not being fully operational until 2020, the Gigafactory’s insatiable hunger for raw material has forced Tesla to make a deal with the state of Nevada to reroute Interstate 80 and Interstate 50 , in order to shave a few miles off of the lithium highway.
  • In order to do that they have introduced: Tesla Semi, a heavy duty autonomous cargo truck, currently in development.
  • With production planned for around the time the Gigafactory goes fully online, the Tesla Semi may be the only way to sustain its magnitude of production. “
  • We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport” said Elon Musk.

Elon Musk’s plan for the future of energy will require almost half of the world’s supply of Lithium; sustaining that may require the world’s first autonomous trucking fleet to link the Tesla(TSLA) Gigafactory with Albermarle’s(ALB) Chemetall-Foote Lithium Plant, the largest lithium producer in North America. Tesla’s grand plan for an energy revolution is predicated on high…

Snapchat Is Beginning to Use Machine Learning to Improve Ad Targeting

Snapchat is beginning to use machine learning to improve ad targeting:

  • Snap’s expected IPO coming sometime next year will likely keep a fire lit under Snap to further innovate.
  • While GBB campaigns are still charged on a CPM basis, Snap says the campaigns end up being more effective.
  • Snap has also been making a big push to improve measurement.
  • Snapchat is adding ways to optimize campaign performance with the help of machine learning.
  • According to CBInsights , Snap Inc. acquired four patents in 2016, and while it’s nowhere near the 16 it received in 2015 or the 18 it received in 2014, it’ll likely need to keep innovating next year.

Snapchat is adding ways to optimize campaign performance with the help of machine learning.  Earlier this month, Snap Inc. began rolling out what it calls Goal-Based Bidding (GBB). The option, available to marketers buying ads through Snapchat’s API, uses machine learning to know which users are most likely to swipe a certain type of ad.
