テスラの主張にも関わらず、完全自動運転車の長い道のり

完全自動運転車への道のりは依然として困難で、テスラの創設者であるエロン・マスクが今年1台を生産できると主張しているにもかかわらず、何年もの改良が必要となる可能性があります。 テスラが「レベル5」の自律性に近づいているというマスクの提案はセクターを気絶させているようであり、それは人間の助けなしに動作できる車両の予測を繰り返し押し戻してきました。 テスラの創設者兼CEOは、上海のテクノロジーフェアへのメッセージで、「 『レベル5』または本質的に完全な自治が起こることを非常に確信している...非常に迅速に」と語った。 彼は、レベル5の「基本機能」が「今年完成」することを期待していると主張しました。 しかしアナリストは、この誓約は、2018年までに自動運転車を提供することを約束し、最近では2020年までにロボタクシーを配備すると約束したマスクからの誇大広告であるようだと言います。 「私たちはまだ本当のレベル4システムから遠く離れているため、特にレベル5に非常に近い」というコメントは、特に近年リセットされた人々が持っていることを考えると、どこからともなく見えます」非営利のイーノ交通センターで。 ルイス氏は、完全な自律性の可能性について数年前に「大きな興奮」があったと述べたが、それ以来衰退した。 「テクノロジー開発者は、人工知能の限界と、これらのタスクのいくつかを処理する際の人間の脳の利点を認識し始めています。」 カーネギーメロン大学の工学教授であり、同校の自動車技術研究所の共同ディレクターでもあるラージラージクマールは、彼も非常に懐疑的であると語った。 研究者によると、最近の主張は、同社が使用している半自律システムからの「より多くの収益を実現するためのテスラによる別のテクニックかもしれない」。 「私たちは以前に何度もここに来た」とラジクマールはテスラの以前の...

EU bets on clean hydrogen for dehydrogenation and economic revitalization

On Wednesday, the European Union's executives decided to clean up as part of their goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050 in criticisms from environmental activists and Green lawmakers calling for the complete elimination of hydrogen produced from fossil fuels. Announced a plan to increase the production of hydrogen. The Commission expects the project to help the EU economy recover from a coronavirus pandemic, and investment in renewable hydrogen will reach € 180-470 billion ($230-530 billion) by the middle of the century Said to be done.

Samsung Electronics predicts that profit will jump despite virus

Samsung Electronics forecasts an operating profit increase of 23% in the second quarter of Tuesday, and strong demand for memory chips and displays overcomes the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on smartphone sales.

Microsoft, Zoom suspended for data request in Hong Kong

On Tuesday, Microsoft and Zoom joined other major Internet companies that stopped considering the request for user information by the Hong Kong government, subject to China's enforcement of widespread new security legislation. Microsoft and Zoom have said they are suspending consideration of data requests by Hong Kong officials or police, which is also a precautionary measure by Facebook, Google and Twitter.

A remote-controlled VR robot to start work this summer at a convenience store in Japan

I rarely drop in at many convenience stores in Japan to have a snack or drink something. However, walking along the front door is waiting for attractive rice balls and sweets drinks, but robots may soon appear. Convenience store chain FamilyMart announced a partnership with Tokyo-based robotics company Telexistence. Both companies will explore ways to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs by using Telexistence technology to stock products in FamilyMart stores. However, of particular interest to this project is that full automation is not always the goal. Instead of turning FamilyMart's branch into an essentially huge vending machine, instead of automatically exchanging products when a customer selects a product to buy, a human being using a VR terminal in another lo...

The impact is unclear as Facebook’s advertising boycott enters a new stage

Facebook's advertiser boycott has turned into a global digital activist campaign aimed at curbing the hateful and toxic content of social media giants. But its impact remains unknown. The unprecedented move has added major brands such as Unilever, Starbucks, Levi's and Coca-Cola, with nearly 200 companies pausing ads on the world's leading social networks, driving billions of Facebook's market value. I wiped it out. Some companies have signed on to the #StopHateForProfit campaign organized by social justice activists, while others have acted on their own to avoid the toxic atmosphere of Facebook. Ford, for example, said it will suspend all social media advertising to "re-evaluate its presence on these platforms," ​​while eradicating content that includes discriminatory remark...

Sony sees the future of data subscription image sensors as a software subscription

Sony Corp.'s image sensor business aims to replicate PlayStation's success in addressing the small number of manufacturers' reliance on the whimsical smartphone market. We plan to sell the software on the spot with a subscription to the data analytics sensor. Converting an optical conversion chip to a software platform is basically similar to a PlayStation Plus video game service, but it makes a big difference to the $10 billion business that has built its edge through hardware breakthroughs. Bring This effort symbolizes Sony's pursuit of recurring revenue after years of loss in the volatile consumer electronics sector. Success could be a joy to activist investor Daniel Robe's call for a spin off, analysts said. “We have a strong position in the market for image sensors that...
