  • The Pros And Cons Of The Automotive Industry

    beginning workings of self-driving cars began in the 1920s. The true first fully autonomous car came around in the 1980s by Carnegie Mellon University. They created the NavLab project which started autonomous car design. According to an Engineering Magazine article by Sherry Stokes of Carnegie Mellon University, “Beginning in 1984, CMU 's Robotics Institute ran the NavLab project, which yielded 11 generations of semi- and fully autonomous vehicles. Another research wave, from 2004 to 2007, focused on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Grand Challenges. CMU won the 2007 "DARPA Urban Challenge" with Boss, a Chevy Tahoe that traveled a 55-mile course autonomously” (1). This means self-driving cars started from the 1980s and continued to advance with new changes in technology. Stanford University made Stanley which is a self-driving car powered by A.I. and multiple computers. Stanley was able to complete a 132 mile DARPA race course in a little less than 7 hours (6 hours and 54 minutes to be exact). These cars were research funded and built to drive on their own without being around other humans on a road. Now various car companies want to build more advanced self-driving cars that will be able to make decisions while on the road with other humans. Ford announced within five years we will have driverless cars mass produced. According to Chris Isidore of money.cnn.com, “Ford (F) said it anticipates the self-driving cars will initially be used for…

  • The Growth Of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

    From SIRI to autonomous cars, artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow rapidly. Today, artificial intelligence is known as narrow AI (or weak AI), as it is designed to perform a narrow task, for example, voice recognition only or only driving a car. “Researchers’ long-term goal is to create artificial general intelligence (AGI or strong AI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, general AI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.” (Tegmark,…
