Your car is intelligent when it knows how to steer, with or without lane markings, on both local roads and highways. Nvidias car, that makes use of its End to End Learning for Self-Driving Cars technology, is also able to drive in areas with unclear visual guidance e.g. unpaved roads.
One of the most crucial abilities of an Intelligent System is learning. “A system which acquires knowledge by experience, trial-and-error or through coaching, exhibits early traces of intelligence.” Read through this post to understand how Artificial Neural Networks learn.
Soon we will have drones and weapons that are controlled by AI instead of humans. But the problem is that “if AI makes mistakes, they make mistakes that no human would make.”. Before we deploy AI in combat we have to be able to trust them and assure they are “intelligent” enough.
Nvidia just shipped the first one of its DGX-1 supercomputers to OpenAI, an AI research company founded by Elon Musk. OpenAI is going to read through every Reddit comment to build a probabilistic understanding of conversations.
Uber just acquired Otto, a company focused on the development of technology for self-driving trucks. The combination of Otto’s technology with Uber’s recent investment in global mapping makes Uber stronger than ever in the self-driving car market.
