  • The researchers tested their system on new images and found that it could discern road features fairly accurately.
  • I am the senior editor for AI at MIT Technology Review .
  • Some video games are now so visually realistic that they can let a computer vision learn about the real world (see ” Self-Driving Cars Can Learn a Lot by Playing Grand Theft Auto “).
  • Researchers at Princeton University recently developed a computer vision and mapping system that gathered useful information about the physical properties of roads by studying Google Street View and comparing the scenes to the information provided in open-source mapping data.
  • The researchers trained their system using 150,000 Street View panoramas.

Playing video games and surfing Google Street View can teach software a lot about driving.

Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice

Drive․ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give ...  by @etherington

  • Core to Drive.ai’ s approach is using deep learning across the board in its autonomous driving system, which means they’re teaching their self-driving cars somewhat like how you’d teach a human.
  • Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice
  • While increasing the safety of driving means building an effective ‘left brain’ for a self-driving car, so to speak, it also means addressing the ‘right brain,’ too.
  • Uber and Volvo put $300M into building self-driving cars ready for sale by 2021
  • Startup Drive.ai is revealing its product and strategy for the first time, and the autonomous driving tech company is looking not only to create the best hardware and software to enable self-driving cars, but also to make sure those cars communicate with people outside of the car in the most effective way possible.

  • No team even came close to finding and fixing them all, but by combining the best results from each team, the test code was 100 per cent patched by the end of the competition.
  • In qualifying heats last year, 131 pieces of software were examined by AI rivals to find 590 software flaws that DARPA knew about.
  • Software must automatically find bugs in rival code.
  • The agency has put up $2m in prize money in the unlikely event of a team building a system that can not only find flaws but write its own patches and deploy them without crashing.
  • Once the competition is over all, the teams’ code – and DARPA’s test code – will be put online in perpetuity under an open-source license.

Google Deep Learning Founder says Tesla’s Autopilot system is ‘irresponsible’

Google Deep Learning Founder says Tesla’s Autopilot system is ‘irresponsible’

  • Tesla will prioritize Model 3 reservations for current Tesla owners over non-owners
  • It doesn’t seem fair for Ng to ask not to ship the Autopilot, which is extremely useful to tens of thousands of Tesla owners, just because a few of them are abusing the system.
  • Following a few recent accidents in the past weeks, Tesla received some criticisms over its approach on releasing semi-autonomous features.
  • One of the most severe criticism came from renowned scientist Andrew NG who said that it was plainly “irresponsible” for Tesla to ship the Autopilot.
  • It’s still difficult to agree with Ng’s claim of creating a “false sense of safety” when Tesla asks drivers to “prepare to take immediate corrective action” and even recommend to keep their hands on the wheel – it doesn’t do much to create a sense of safety.

This startup is using machine learning to create animal product substitutes

This startup is using machine learning to create animal product substitutes  @techinsider #AI

  • Beyond creating products for shelves, Muchnick says that NotCo is also licensing its technology to small businesses and corporations that want to make their foods more sustainable.
  • Google boss Eric Schmidt says that it’s going to be the basis for every big new tech company over the next five years.
  • Down in Santiago, Chile, a five-person startup is using machine learning to figure out how to create its own versions of vegetarian substitutes for animal products.
  • SEE ALSO: Machine learning is going to revolutionize the way you use your phone
  • The future of food looks a lot like advanced animal product substitutes; we’ve already gone beyond tofurkey to plant-based burgers that “bleed.”
