Uber Launches Artificial-Intelligence Lab to Perfect Automotive Autonomy
In a bid to master automotive autonomy, Uber is actually launching a completely new artificial-intelligence effort. Under the simple name of AI Labs, Uber’s artificial-intelligence research will initially be led by a 15-member team by Geometric Intelligence, an AI research startup. Its acquisition by Uber was announced along with the completely new initiative.
According to a blog post written by Jeff Holden, Uber’s chief product officer, AI Labs will attempt to solve many challenges related to autonomous vehicles. Geometric Intelligence, on its own website, says its goal is actually “to redefine the boundaries of machine learning through innovative, patent-pending techniques of which learn more efficiently by less data.”
In different words, Geometric Intelligence wants to replace today’s dominant deep-machine-learning philosophy, a data-heavy approach of which relies on the recognition of patterns in digital data. As Geometric Intelligence CEO along with AI Labs director Gary Marcus told MIT Technology Review, “[An autonomous car] might have enough information to predict what happens at nine inside the morning, although what happens at 2 a.m. along with there’s less data?” The takeaway? Geometric Intelligence along with AI Labs will look to create artificial intelligence of which is actually able to learn more efficiently with less available data.
Speaking at the MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital conference, Marcus suggested the company already is actually well on its way to changing the way machines learn. In Geometric Intelligence’s early testing, he revealed of which its AI was able to learn more quickly using deep learning.

Still, Geometric Intelligence’s AI will have a challenge ahead of of which to navigate the incredibly dynamic world of autonomous vehicles. Nevertheless, look for Uber to report any breakthroughs at AI Labs along with to apply any learnings to its autonomous-vehicle test fleet currently prowling the streets of Pittsburgh.
