People favor Self-driving Car That Kills Passenger to Save Many Others, but Don’t Want to Buy it for Themselves

Will you ride a self-driving car that may kill you intentionally? A new survey asked people whether they will prefer autonomous cars that are programmed to save most people during an accident, and found that most people weren’t in mood of sacrificing their life for others.

These self-driving vehicles have an algorithm that works to kill minimum people in case of a major crash. For examples, if the vehicle finds that there are five pedestrians and only one passenger, it will choose to kill a person inside the car.

Google plans to launch its own smartphone

Google plans to launch its own handset

For years, Google has relied on Nexus devices, whose parts are being built by outside handset manufacturers. But now, Google will build its own smartphone and would not depend on any other smartphone maker to deliver the goods.

As per reports, Google would launch a smartphone that would directly have competition with iPhone. Already, Google has its own Android operating system that runs on four in five smartphones, including LG and Huawei. It even endorses many smartphones under the label of the Google Nexus brand.

Study evaluates people's perception about autonomous vehicles in case of crash

Study evaluates people's perception about autonomous vehicles in case of crash

Automobile companies are spending money and resources on developing autonomous vehicles and many projects are already conducting road tests for self-driving cars. Soon in future, you will see self-driving cars running on roads and making traveling easier for you than it is today. Some industry experts predict there will be fewer accidents due to these autonomous vehicles, but if such a car faces a situation like crash, whose life it will save? What will be more important for the vehicle: its own passenger’s life or lives of others?

BitTorrent launches video and music streaming app

BitTorrent launches video and music streaming app

BitTorrent recently launched a video and music streaming app called BitTorrent Now for iOS, Android, and Apple TV. You can soon expect it on your device. But before embarking onto it, one should know what this new app will offer. Its large streaming will form independent artists who are not popular. These artists may upload their content for free or charge certain amount of money.

Research explores how people expect their self-driving cars to act when faced with extreme situations

Research explores how people expect their self-driving cars to act when faced with extreme situations

Research work is as how to develop and refine the algorithms of autonomous vehicles, which are considered to be the future of the roads. Now, a very logical question has come up that what would happen in extreme situations, where a crash and injury or death is unavoidable.

This question has been picked up in a research paper titled, ‘The Social Dilemma of Autonomous Vehicles’ published in the journal Science. The research paper makes an attempt to understand as to how people want their self-driving cars to act when faced in an extreme situation that could lead to death.

Scientists from top companies working together to find solutions to five AI safety issues

Scientists from top companies working together to find solutions to five AI safety issues

Scientists from Google’s deep-learning research unit, Google Brain, the Elon Musk-backed OpenAI, and Stanford and Berkeley universities have joined hands in order to find solutions to five safety problems that could take place when AI robot are put to work in home, office and industry.

Google said that it wants to have concrete answers to questions with regard to safety and artificial intelligence (AI). Many a times, AI robots have been blamed for stealing jobs and even to have capable of destroying humanity.

CSAIL invented deep-learning vision system that predicts human actions

CSAIL invented deep-learning vision system that predicts human actions

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab’s (CSAIL’s) deep-learning vision system predicted human interaction using videos of TV shows. Humans are quite efficient in anticipating human actions, but a machine does not know anything about human behavior, unless it is not trained to anticipate. Machines made with deep learning vision capability could transform future of robotics.
