New Self-Driving Technology Can Navigate Without 3D Maps

New Self-Driving Technology

The new self-driving vehicle technology can navigate in rural areas without using 3D maps.  It combines local system with open street map for navigating individual road segments.   The mapless driving framework robustly tracks road boundaries using LiDAR sensors. Existing autonomous vehicles require 3D maps to navigate. That’s the reason self-driving cars can’t actually drive themselves in ...

Spam-Filtering AI Learns Behavior Of An Animal

Spam-Filtering AI used to learn hydra's behavior

Researchers use machine learning algorithm (originally developed for spam filtering) to analyze Hydra’s behavior.  It can analyze behavior in real time and show how Hydra’s neurons respond to varying environments.  To do this, they applied bag-of-words classification model to the video containing all Hydra’s activities.  We have been studying animals’ behavior for centuries. It involves a lot ...

New Machine Learning Model Can Prevent Deadly Infections

CDI infection

Researchers develop a new machine learning model to prevent symptomatic infection before it starts.  The model is based on L2 regularized logistic regression method.  The algorithm made accurate prediction 5 days before diagnostic samples were taken. Around 29,000 U.S citizen die every year due to symptomatic infection called Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). It’s present in the air, soil, ...
