Phoenix Welcoming Driverless Cars in Public Roads Foretells Major Artificial Intelligence-led Transformation for Transportation Industry with Autonomous Ride-hailing Taxi Services, Says Cybersecurity and Deep Learning Keynote Speaker and Consultant Edgar

(November 7, 2017, New York) “Our ultimate goal is to bring our fully self-driving technology to more cities in the U.S. and around the world; fully self-driving cars are here.” That is how John Krafcik, Waymo’s Chief Executive Officer, marked the important milestone which brings autonomous vehicle technology closer to operating without any human intervention. Waymo is the autonomous car company from Google’s parent company Alphabet.


While the prospect of vehicles without human emergency drivers may be concerning for passengers, human drivers and local authorities, Waymo has expressed confidence in the safety of its self-driving developments. These include backup systems, like a secondary computer to take over if the main computer fails, and Waymo employees sitting in the back seat of the cars, monitoring them.


For Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, the prospect of a world with self-driving cars may bring a light of optimism to significantly reduce the almost 40,000 automobile-related fatalities the U.S. experiences every year. Autonomous vehicles adhere strictly to traffic laws, they don’t get tired or distracted, and they usually refrain from taking unnecessary risks that humans do such as operating a cell phone.


Ultimately, “we should be open to emerging technologies that may support safer travel and open up new opportunities for sectors of the population that today are unable to drive for themselves,” says Perez; he is a well-known international futurist, artificial intelligence and deep learning speaker who currently offers the world’s first Deep Learning workshop for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

ABOUT THE AI BREAKTHROUGH


Artificial intelligence has been referred as the general ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term has indeed been frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, generalize, discover meaning, or learn from past experiences. Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are as yet no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge.


In 1945, British logician and computer pioneer Alan Turing predicted that computers would one day play very good chess. Just over 50 years later, in 1997, Deep Blue, a chess computer built by IBM beat the reigning world champion, Garry Kasparov, in a six-game match. Since then, a number of programs have attained the performance levels of human experts and professionals in performing certain specific tasks, so that artificial intelligence is now found in applications as diverse as medical diagnosis, computer search engines, and voice or handwriting recognition.


Indeed, deep learning has enabled many practical applications of machine learning and by extension the overall field of artificial intelligence. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, even better movie recommendations, are all here today. Artificial intelligence is the present and the future.


The AI Breakthrough, How Artificial Intelligence is Advancing Deep Learning and Revolutionizing Your World, will provide a comprehensive review of the artificial intelligence breakthroughs of today and tomorrow and how these advancements will impact businesses and the human race in general for years to come.
