Humans Still Quicker Than Robots at Learning to Drive

Self-driving cars may be threatening to take the jobs of millions of human drivers, but there are still some areas where mankind has the upper hand. An artificial intelligence algorithm designed to teach an autonomous car to drive managed to do so using just 72 hours of driving data. While that may be impressive for a robot, it is still twice the amount of time it takes the average human to learn to drive. Try Newsweek: Subscription offers Computer giant Nvidia developed a convolutional neural network (CNN) to learn how to steer a car in any weather condition, using only the data taken from cameras and a car’s steering wheel. Nvidia’s project, called Dave, first began in 2015 in an effort to bypass the need to program specific…
