As part of a five year collaboration project, Toyota Research are working with MIT’s Media Lab to build and analyse new deep-learning based perception and motion based planning technologies for autonomous vehicles. Toyota are working with a series of companies specialising in blockchain technology (a distributed database used to maintain a continuously growing list of records that powers the cryptocurrency bitcoin) and are aiming to explore how this can be applied to the industry.

Deep learning is being applied extensively within all the tools that we use in everyday life, mobile phones, computers and even coffee machines. Therefore it is important to understand how the technology works. Over the last few weeks, we have been introducing the A-Z Glossary Series for Deep Learning, which will include explanations for key terms to help build a basic understanding in deep learning.

The question of whether technology will improve or further disrupt urban traffic remains, and will so until driverless cars are in mainstream operation, but autonomous vehicle testing and intelligence is rapidly advancing. Ahead of our Machine Intelligence in Autonomous Vehicle Summit in Amsterdam 28 & 29 June, we’re taking a look at the most recent breakthroughs and news in this space.
Currently, all self-drive cars in testing are required to have a human backup driver in case of emergencies, but Delphi and Transdev have revealed that they are planning to use autonomous taxis and shuttles to carry passengers on roads in France.

Over the last year, Boston has seen its tech scene flourish, and when our team headed out for the Deep Learning Summit and the Deep Learning in Healthcare Summit at the end of May, we heard first hand from some of these thriving companies.
Having traveled back from Boston on the day of the British Airways IT meltdown, it really draw on the functionality of Freebird, a B2B travel tech startup based in Boston, and how it could have saved the day had we been booked onto a BA flight back to the UK.

In many different web services, machine learning is being used for recommendation systems that help users tackle information overload: there are simply too many movies, songs, and books for users to usefully browse through. Without such tools, some services are rapidly falling behind and losing customers. Neal Lathia, Senior Data Scientist at Skyscanner, shares expertise on how to bootstrap a destination recommender system.

The financial sector has been slower to adopt AI than other industries, but with ‘nearly 73% of everyday financial trading being executed by machines’, there are many FinTech companies emerging in the space to improve and disrupt this industry. We heard from cutting-edge startups, academics, and industry experts applying deep learning to finance. The application of neural networks and the implementation of DL to make data driven forecasts is something that is providing more accurate insights and projections in the financial space.
