Understanding the Role of AI and How to Use Data

In this episode, we discuss the range of possibilities within AI, where all that data comes from, and how to create value from it. AI has the potential to offer big advantages over the competition, and machine learning puts all of the information into focus. We then focus on our HEEDS solution and how it fits into the simulation equation, the key benefits of using the technology, and the process of designing automated vehicles so that unpredictable situations are accounted for. We wrap up by touching on a few misconceptions about AI, and where it might lead us in the future.
