Toyota just invested million to develop intelligent cars that think and learn

At a press conference today in Silicon Valley Toyota announced plans to invest $50 million over five years to set up joint artificial intelligence research centers at Stanford and MIT. The centers will focus on developing autonomous technology and next-gen systems that will make driving safer, easier, and more efficient. The initiative will take a human-focused approach to develop vehicles that think and learn from drivers – and systems that know when to step in to prevent accidents and save lives. Over 1 million people die every year in car accidents, and Toyota’s goal is to go beyond protecting people in a crash to preventing crashes entirely. Toyota hired DARPA’s Gill Pratt to lead the initiative, which will seek to produce cutting-edge collaborative research into artificial intelligence and robotic technology.…
