back to article Wanna live on the edge and play with a multi-core system crammed with 5G, AI? Here's a dev kit Qualcomm has in mind

Samples of Qualcomm's Cloud AI 100, teased more than a year ago, are now shipping to select customers, the tech giant said this week. The hardware is due to officially launch in the first half of next year. The Cloud AI 100 is a system-on-chip designed to accelerate machine-learning workloads at the edge of networks, in data …

    Cometh the hour, cometh the application, cometh the exercise for deployment* :-) ......

    The RATs are in the system and helping themselves to the goodies. And what a diabolical cheek of some, to call themselves experts, eh?

    * Don't be holding your breath on the system being in any way ultra helpful though, and fully expect it to be strangely less than enthusiastic and welcoming of new disruptive detective technology ........ postmodern virtual machine whistleblowing.

    As Corporal Jones would say ...... "They don't like it up 'em "

    Some tweaks for Tesla's image processing needed?

    In the US and Canada at least if a car comes up behind you and shines a very bright red light at you then its asking you to pull over. If it follows you as you move to the right and slow down then its telling you it wants you to stop. You obviously need to stop somewhere safe so you acknowledge the signal using the right turn signal (its 'common practice', I don't think its in the driver's handbook). So Tesla has a bit of software work to do. Recognizing the 'pull over' signal should be relatively straightforward, the system then at a minimum should alert the driver, restrict the maximum speed of the vehicle and maybe move to the right if its safe to do so. If nothing else it would help the cops manage sleeping or unfit drivers.

    Traffic stops are going to vary by country but the Autopilot system should at least recognize them.

      The point is, despite the misleading name of Autopilot, it isn't a self driving car so the driver should be the one that recognises that there is a police car behind and take control of the vehicle.

    Autopilot should be banned.

    The problem is it's half arsed stop gap.

    It's not good enough to perform often simple common sense operations, yet makes driving so uneventful, so boring and mundane, that it is inevitable that drivers will stop paying attention.

    If you have to drive for two hours, but for 1 hour 59 minutes you have to do nothing, human nature takes over and you will doze off or become less responsive.

      The name "Autopilot' should be banned as false advertising under existing law.

      The software should require the driver to interact every ten minutes and do this with an audible voice prompt. It wouldn't prevent all distracted driving but it would prevent sleeping.

      The software should also sound a loud alarm and voice prompt when it detects flashing red lights.

    It has ‘AI’ in its name - it MUST be good. And the ‘cloud’ version must be even better. Now if it also supports ‘blockchain’ as well then... WOW!!!
