Waymo, which started in 2009 as the Google self-driving car project, is ready for the next phase! For the uninitiated, Waymo’s self-driving vehicles utilise neural networks to perform driving tasks. It includes detecting objects, predicting other’s behaviour, and planning the car’s next moves.
DeepMind to the rescue!
According to DeepMind, an artificial intelligence company, training a neural network requires weeks of fine-tuning, experimentation, and substantial computational power. Founded by Demis Hassabis, Mustafa Suleyman, Shane Legg, DeepMind was acquired by Google back in 2014 in an attempt to push the boundaries of AI.
