Better driving—and robots—through artificial intelligence

You’ve been on the road for hours, trying to make good time back home after an exhausting weekend in Vegas. With each blink your eyes stay closed a little longer. Your head nods and then snaps back up. Before it can happen again, possibly resulting in a deadly crash, your car begins to slow down and an alarm blares to jolt you awake. This future is getting closer to reality, according to a trio of researchers from Cornell University and Stanford University, who have created an artificial intelligence system that can predict with high accuracy what the driver of a car will do next. Applied broadly, this type of research could improve everything from the safety of our cars to the usefulness of our robots. A paper the researchers published…
