AI assisted forecasting of earthquake aftershock locations

Harvard and Google collaborated to apply deep learning to explain where earthquake aftershocks might occur. They started with visual representation of the 1992 magnitude 7.3 southern California Landers earthquake where the multi-colored portion represents the initial quake and the red boxes represent aftershock locations. They applied a neural net to analyze the relationships between static …

LIDAR and self driving cars need to get a lot better

In 2017, Austin Russell, CEO of Silicon Valley LIDAR startup Luminar, said the first generation of self-driving cars will cost $300,000-$400,000. * Current systems have a “critical failure rate”—how often they fail to “see” an object—of one error in 1,000 miles. To be acceptable for use on public roads, that rate will have to drop …
