Hyundai, Kia and Hwaseong City test self-driving system

Hyundai, Kia and Hwaseong City set up a communication system to encourage self-driving implementation. Two South Korean automobile giants announced the construction of a communications device called the V2X system in Hwaseong City as part of their plan to deploy autonomous car technology and conduct tests in the near future and commercialize by 2020.

Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp. said it had set up an autonomous vehicle system spanning 14 kilometers including seven intersections at Hwaseong located south of Seoul. Both companies will conduct detailed research to verify, effectiveness and safety of the system as the realization of future mobility.

The V2X system allows each vehicle to exchange information in real-time with roads, lights, other vehicles and pedestrians. This information is very important for autonomous cars to complement navigation by onboard cameras, radar and other sensors in bad weather conditions.

The sophisticated system utilizes special signal relay stations and closed-circuit TVs that are placed along the way. Hyundai and Kia said they had an agreement with Hwaseong City late last year for V2X installations that have been involved since June 2016. Hyundai, Kia and Hwaseong City test self-driving system

Hyundai and Kia collect data from V2X at the end of the year so they make changes and correct the detected flaws. The data will be used for organized infrastructure projects that allow cars to communicate with each other on the highway for commercialization by 2020.

V2X system technology is expected to improve safety in driving not only cars without drivers, but also on conventional cars. The system will alert the driver about the possibility of a collision when crossing a junction or when a car in front makes a sudden brake.

Wireless access allows for stable communication between the vehicle and roadside infrastructure at high speed. Vehicles for testing have V2X display panels, head-up displays, instrument clusters and navigation systems to display images and sound alarms.

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…
