6.1 million autonomous miles have been driven by Waymo’s driverless vehicles in Phoenix , Arizona, including 65,000 miles without a person behind the wheel from 2019 to the first nine months of 2020. That’s according to data released today by Waymo from a recent internal study that examined a portion of accidents involving the Waymo […]
Here on Earth, where the pandemic is exploding again in regions of the world that were once active in controlling it, the year 2020 continues to be challenging. Along with Poland and the Czech Republic, Germany registered a record number of cases this week, while the U.S. counted 500,000 new cases. It’s the background to […]
New ways of computing are coming to the fore as development in conventional computing slows. A team of engineers is trying to pioneer a form of computation at Penn State that mimics the efficiency of the neural networks of the brain while leveraging the analog nature of the brain. Digital, consisting of two states, on-off […]
The Raxio Group (Raxio) has acquired land at the ICT Park, in the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to build the country’s first private uptime certified Tier III colocation data centre. The site, purchased through Raxio’s fully owned subsidiary in Ethiopia, Raxio Data Centre PLC (Raxio Ethiopia) is set to be commission in the third quarter of 2021. Once completed, Raxio Ethiopia will offer its customers an optimised environment for their IT equipment in a state of the art, modular facility, fully equipped with leading technology, security, AC/DC power compatibility and redundancy.
LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air with its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor. Meanwhile, the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
(Reuters) Competitor Mercedes-Benz says it has built a similar device, but stops short of allowing members of the public to take it on urban roads, as Tesla promotes the cutting edge quality of its current Complete Self Driving program. The German leaders in the development of advanced driver assistance systems ( ADAS) are taking a […]
Google researchers claim they have built a Transporter Network AI model architecture that allows object-grasping robots to reason about which visual signals are relevant and how they should be rearranged in a scene. The researchers say their Transporter Networks have achieved “superior” efficiency during experiments on a variety of tasks, including stacking a block pyramid, […]
Intel announced today that it will acquire SigOpt, a company based in San Francisco that is building a platform to optimize models of AI applications. The terms of the deal, expected to close this quarter, were not announced, but Intel says it plans to use SigOpt’s technology to accelerate, amplify, and scale AI software tools […]
Intel today quietly released Intel Geospatial, a cloud platform that provides geovisual workloads with data engineering solutions, 3D visualizations, and simple analytics tools. Intel says it is designed to provide access across an ecosystem of partners to 2D and 3D geospatial data and applications, addressing use cases such as vegetation control, fire risk assessment and […]
There are a billion drivers, each a different entity, so the use of the law makes sense. But there will never be more than a handful of robocar driving systems in any given area, and probably not more than a hundred or so world-wide. Unlike the human drivers, it will be possible to get representatives from each robocar system in a town or nation in one room at the same time.
