Deep Driving

Deep Driving A revolutionary AI technique is about to transform the self-driving car. October 18, 2016 When the Google self-driving-car project began about a decade ago, the company made a strategic decision to build its technology on expensive lidar and detailed mapping. Even today, Google’s self-­driving technology still relies on those two pillars. While that approach is great up to a point—we have good algorithms for using lidar and camera data to localize a car on the map—it’s still not good enough. Driving on complicated, ever-changing streets involves perception and decision-making skills that are inherently uncertain (see “Your Driverless Ride Is Arriving”). Now an artificial-intelligence technology called deep learning is being used to address the problem. Rather than using the old method of hand-coded algorithms, we can now use systems…
