Toyota Pledges M To Research AI For Autonomous Vehicles, Hires DARPA’s Dr

“In parallel autonomy, there is a guardian angel or driver’s education teacher”, Gil Pratt, a robotics expert who left the military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to lead the research effort, told The New York Times. He spearheaded the DARPA Robotics Challenge, a competition that brought teams from around the world together to compete for $3.5 million in prize money. The centers will focus on developing autonomous technology and next-gen systems that will make driving safer, easier, and more efficient. Stanford’s research is to be led by Li Fei-fei (李飛飛), director of the university’s artificial intelligence laboratory. Toyota said that they were going to be spending $ 50 million in the next 5 years for establishing joint research centers at Stanford & MIT. Toyota announced its news at a hotel…
