U.S. company Royal Truck & Equipment are almost ready to launch driver-less trucks on real roads. Testing is scheduled in Florida in 2015.

Besides remote and GPS navigation, the trucks are also equipped with “leader-follower” capabilities, which basically means that a truck can connect to a car in front of it and tag along.

Another important step in securing roads.

Google photo mistakes people for gorillas

@jackyalcine caused quite a stir on the web – and rightly so – when Google Photos tagged pictures of her friends as gorillas.

Thinking about this as an A.I. problem, I do understand how something like this could happen. It is actually not very surprising for computer vision algorithms to make this mistake. This is because such algorithms looks for patterns of pixels WITHOUT ANY UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THEY REPRESENT.

For a human being, however, the mistake is completely unacceptable. And this is because humans ALWAYS think in terms of what is represented. This is why it is impossible for a human being to make this mistake.
