The concept design hints at Acura’s in-car future.
Digital dials are great and all, but why not turn things up a notch? That’s exactly what Acura is doing with its Precision Cockpit, unveiled at the LA Auto Show today. More than just an in-car infotainment system, the concept includes cabin elements borrowed from the NSX (such as the seats and the steering wheel), which show us just how future Acura motors will look and feel inside, along with how we’ll interact with them. Acura’s calling it a “choreographed in-car experience” (of course) and it appears that experience includes some clever technology.
Google’s work in machine learning and artificial intelligence is often interesting, but it can be a bit academic. People like to get their hands on these things — as much as you can, anyway, with something intangible. To that end, Google is collecting a bunch of little demonstrations of this emerging category of tech in its AI Experiments showcase.
Apparently, having a home cooked meal from the kitchens of Thomas Keller, Alain Ducasse and Gordan Ramsay could become a reality. In 2018, Moley will launch the world’s first fully-automated and integrated intelligent cooking robot—a robotic kitchen that has unlimited access to chefs and their recipes worldwide. So not only can this robotic chef cook over 100 different meals for you, it will clean up after itself too!
The world’s largest technology companies hold the keys to some of the largest databases on our planet. Much like goods and coins before it, data is becoming an important currency for the modern world. The data’s value is rooted in its applications to artificial intelligence. Whichever company owns the data, effectively owns AI. Right now that means companies like Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet, IBM and Microsoft have a ton of power.
