Drive.ai is an autonomous car developer that currently has a fleet of test vehicles in Texas . It recently published an article on its Medium page that goes into detail on how it processes data, how it visualizes it and how it’s using deep-learning AI to speed up the conversion from raw data into usable information.
One of the things we found fascinating was the time scale that Drive.ai works against. Currently, for every hour of on-road autonomous car driving, it takes 800 human hours to process that data so Drive.ai’s systems can understand it. The process is called annotation, and it’s critical to being able to understand what happens on a drive. That’s an almost insane difference, but the company hopes to dramatically reduce that figure and improve accuracy to 100 percent with artificial intelligence. […]
