HOW DATA SCIENCE IS DRIVING THE DRIVERLESS CAR

HOW DATA SCIENCE IS DRIVING THE DRIVERLESS CAR Google may be the first name associated with driverless cars, but they’re not the only ones interested in the technology. More importantly, it seems people have wildly different opinions on exactly how the story will play out. How much data will these cars produce? What kind of legal quandaries will we face? While the details are hazy, there is no doubt these machines will not only be available in the near future, they will soak up data like a sponge, and put that information to use... [Lire la suite]
