Fiat Chrysler joins BMW-Intel alliance builds robotaxi

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles joins an consortium led by BMW to develop robotaxi booked through smartphones and get paid at all times. Autonomous cars allow automakers to take the taxi market that operated by ride-sharing operators. The strategic move by Fiat Chrysler intensifies the competition of automakers and operators in the transportation business.

The Fiat Chrysler and BMW collaborations also include Intel-Mobileye which will accumulate engineering expertise and other expertise to open autonomous car industries and platforms can be adopted by other car makers.

A report says the taxi market is worth US$2 trillion by 2030. Analysts also say autonomous vehicles will have a share of about 15 percent of total vehicle production in Europe by 2030.

Autonomous cars by car makers are predicted to hit the traditional taxi market. Companies that operate robotaxi do not have to pay the driver so it is more cost-effective and competes with other forms of transportation including buses.

Marchionne has always said automakers must collaborate to reduce the exorbitant cost of upgrading the latest technology. In April, Fiat Chrysler sought a new partner as a separate unit of the Alphabet's Waymo alliance.

"In order to advance autonomous driving technology, it is vital to form partnerships among automakers, technology providers and suppliers," said Marchionne.

"Joining this cooperation will enable FCA to directly benefit from the synergies and economies of scale that are possible when companies come together with a common vision and objective," said Marchionne.

Fiat Chrysler says it will plan to incorporate autonomous car technology into mass production by 2021 or according to a time frame owned by competing companies that also develop similar cars. Fiat Chrysler's CEO Sergio Marchionne establishes synergies and economies of scale will be created within the alliance.

The consortium says it has set up 40 test vehicles on the highway by the end of 2017 to equip 100 test vehicles to be used by Mobileye in the United States.

Conservative cleric vice president candidate of Indonesia, abstentions rose

Tinuku - Indonesian President Joko Widodo chose an elderly Muslim cleric Ma'ruf Amin as vice presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election to become a red record for human rights activists. The figure who actively strives to criminalize minorities and sexuality is seen as a way to reverse human rights enforcement.

Lokataru's director, Haris Azhar, is still campaigning not to elect the presidential and vice presidential candidates. The declaration of two candidate pairs, especially the choice by Joko Widodo to Ma'ruf Amin as vice president and presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto on Sandiaga Uno as vice president, strengthened the minds of human rights activists.


"It's still the same. In fact, it is increasingly proven. From a human rights perspective, all candidates are violators of human rights. So I think the four candidates are the same, not friendly to human rights, not friendly to the environment," said Azhar told to Deutsche Welle Indones…

Nvidia expands in artificial intelligence, but Intel has taken root

Tinuku - Nvidia Corp dominates chips for training computers to think like humans, but it faces an entrenched competitor in a major avenue for expansion in the artificial intelligence chip market Intel Corp.

Nvidia chips dominate the AI training chip market, where huge amounts of data help algorithms “learn” a task such how to recognize a human voice, but one of the biggest growth areas in the field will be deploying computers that implement the “learned” tasks. Intel dominates data centers where such tasks are likely to be carried out.


But Intel processors already are widely used for taking a trained artificial intelligence algorithm and putting it to use, for example by scanning incoming audio and translating that into text-based requests, what is called “inference.” Intel’s chips can still work just fine there, especially when paired with huge amounts of memory.

That market could be bigger than the training market who sees an inference market of $11.8 billion by 2021, versus $8.2 bi…
