An artificial intelligence algorithm developed by Stanford researchers can determine a neighborhood’s political leanings by its cars

Stanford researchers are using computer algorithms that can see and learn to analyze millions of publicly available images on Google Street View to determine the political leanings of a given neighborhood just by looking at the cars on the streets. The algorithms were trained – or more accurately, they trained themselves – to recognize the make, … Continue reading “An artificial intelligence algorithm developed by Stanford researchers can determine a neighborhood’s political leanings by its cars”

Berkeley startup to train robots like puppets

The Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, have launched a start-up, Embodied Intelligence, Inc., to use the latest techniques of deep reinforcement learning and artificial intelligence to make industrial robots easily teachable. Robots today must be programmed by writing computer code, but imagine donning a VR headset and virtually guiding a robot through a … Continue reading “Berkeley startup to train robots like puppets”

Waymo rolls out autonomous vans without human drivers

Waymo, which started as the Google self-driving car project in 2009, is ready for the next phase. Starting now, Waymo’s fully self-driving vehicles are test-driving on public roads, without anyone in the driver’s seat. And soon, members of the public will get to use these vehicles in their daily lives. To date, Waymo vehicles have … Continue reading “Waymo rolls out autonomous vans without human drivers”

System uses ‘deep learning’ to detect cracks in nuclear reactors

A system under development at Purdue University uses artificial intelligence to detect cracks captured in videos of nuclear reactors and represents a future inspection technology to help reduce accidents and maintenance costs. “Regular inspection of nuclear power plant components is important to guarantee safe operations,” said Mohammad R. Jahanshahi, an assistant professor in Purdue’s Lyles School … Continue reading “System uses ‘deep learning’ to detect cracks in nuclear reactors”
