Google focuses on artificial intelligence in its products
Internet giant, Google is focusing on the technologies to improve its products and services and also create revolutionary products. The company has developed a car that drives itself and is looking in to algorithms to better understand human intent by improving itâ€™s understand of the language.
According to a report in New York Times, various test cars were driven for 1,000 miles without human control and more than 1,40,000 miles with only occasional human control. The artificial intelligence software in the car is capable of detecting anything near the car and also copy human actions.
A device fitted on top of the car creates a virtual map of the environment allowing the car to drive safely. The report said that one test car was also tested in San Francisco, one of the steepest and curviest streets in the United States.
The only accident was report when a test car rear ended as it stopped at a signal. The cars will still need some to be produced for the public but experts believe that they can truly transform traffic.
The engineers say that these cars will be safer as robots controlling these cars can react faster than humans, have a 360-degree perception and they do not get sleepy or intoxicated. They argue that these cars could double the capacity of roads by allowing cars to drive closer and safely.
The company is carrying out research activities across departments on artificial intelligence. Company engineers are also looking to include it in the companyâ€™s core search engine.
