voice assistant

voice assistant Google Assistant is catching up with — and in some cases, passing — Alexa on a variety of fronts, with a wealth of new features announced today at Google’s I/O developer conference. Alexa will soon be able to recall information you’ve directed her to remember, as well as have more natural conversations that don’t require every command to begin with “Alexa". AI will create more jobs than it destroys was the not-so-subtle rebuttal from tech giants to growing concern over the impact... [Lire la suite]

Apple has hired Google’s head of search and artificial intelligence

Credit : Steve Jennings Yesterday, Google SVP of Engineering in charge of search and artificial intelligence John Giannandrea announced his departure from the company.

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time Phoenix, Arizona is home to the world's first fully driverless robot taxi service. Google sibling Waymo now has driverless cars on public roads, with no one behind the wheel. The autonomous Chrysler Pacifica minivans had kept safety drivers onboard, ready to take over in emergencies or when the vehicle fails to navigate on its own. But Waymo has let its cars off the leash in Phoenix, AZ, giving them permission to drive entirely on their own. A... [Lire la suite]

But as you know, right after Tesla added its self-driving update to its cars, some people already experienced accidents. So, the technology is still in its infancy. But since that day, things have evolved quite a bit.... [Lire la suite]

GOOGLE'S SELF-DRIVING CAR COMPANY IS FINALLY HERE

GOOGLE'S SELF-DRIVING CAR COMPANY IS FINALLY HERE WHEN STEVE MAHAN was a kid in the 1960s, his mother would sometimes wake him in the early hours of the morning to watch the hours of television coverage preceding the launch of the Mercury space missions. "We would hear about all of the preparations, all of the technology, everything that led up to these moments," Mahan says. "And then we would count down 'till you finally got to zero and ignition, and one of those rockets begins bellowing fire and smoke, and slowly begins to... [Lire la suite]

Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality

Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality If you told me a few years ago that in next 10 years we would have flying cars, I would have dismissed it as pure fiction. I have to say given the maturity of drone technology, advent of autonomous vehicles and giant strides we are making in AI, I believe we will see first applications of flying vehicles for recreational activities in the next five years. The flying car, which was confined to movies such as Back to the Future, and TV shows like the Jetsons, is all set to take a... [Lire la suite]

The cars drove nearly 636,000 miles last year, compared with just over 424,000 in 2015. Other states in the US do not require such reporting. The California Department of Motor Vehicles published...
