Unity is the video game engine that many gamers might have seen and played, even if they might not necessarily know its name. It is the engine that powers games such as Cuphead, Monument Valley 2, and Hearthstone, just to name a few, and now it looks like Baidu has taken the engine and is using it to test their self-driving cars.
Ford is one of the many major car manufacturers working on autonomous cars and Baidu is one of the many tech companies working on this technology. The two have now decided to team up in order to test self-driving cars on roads in China. The tests will be part of a new two year project between the companies.
If the rumors are true, Google is apparently planning to make a return to China where they will launch a censored version of its search engine to appease the local government. However given Google’s absence in the country for as long as it has been, obviously the competition has managed to fill that gap.
Chinese tech giant Baidu has been working on its own self-driving technology and the company is now reportedly gearing up to launch its self-driving buses in Japan next year. Baidu’s Apolong fully self-driving bus has been developed in collaboration with Chinese manufacturer King Long and it will be first rolled out in a handful of Chinese cities before it lands in Japan.
As the recent fatal crash involving a self-driving car in Tempe, Arizona has started a debate about the pace at which autonomous vehicles have been allowed on public roads for tests, China has reiterated its support of homegrown autonomous technology by allowing local search giant Baidu to test self-driving cars in the country. Baidu is the dominant online search engine in China, it’s often referred to as the country’s Google.
Chinese internet giant Baidu and BlackBerry has inked a new partnership to work jointly on self-driving car technology. Baidu has been very active in this space and is already working with other major players in this space on autonomous cars. Some of the other companies that Baidu has teamed up with for self-driving cars include Microsoft, Intel, NVIDIA, and others. The partnership will see BlackBerry’s QNX software being used as […]
When it comes to speaker design, it’s safe to say that for the most part many of them tend to be pretty boring in terms of their shape and color (although at least one has made its way into the Museum of Modern Art). However the folks at Teenage Engineering are trying to change that perception with the unveiling of the “H” and “R” smart speakers.
It is safe to assume that in the future, self-driving cars will become the mainstay in transportation. This is because self-driving cars have the potential to be safer and more efficient due to it taking out the human factor in driving. However before that happens, there still needs to be a lot of work done.
It is no secret that many tech companies and carmakers are working on making self-driving cars a reality. In fact over in China, internet search giant Baidu is making some progress of their own and had previously teamed up with the likes of BMW and Microsoft to help further their self-driving car efforts.
Baidu, often referred to as the Google of China, has been working on its own self-driving car technology and it has now teamed up with one of the biggest tech companies on the planet to further advance the futuristic technology. While Microsoft has long worked with car manufacturers on software for connected cars, this appears to be the first instance of the company venturing into the self-driving car turf.
NVIDIA has entered into a broad partnership with China’s search giant Baidu to accelerate artificial intelligence. The partnership will see both companies working together to bring artificial intelligence technology to cloud computing, voice-based home assistants, and self-driving cars.
When you think of facial recognition systems, you might think of novelty phone security features that don’t really work as well as they should, or you associate it with privacy concerns where Big Brother could be watching your every move through various CCTVs. While those are likely uses for facial recognition tech, over in China it has helped reunite a family.
If you’ve ever tried transcribing a voice recording, you know how tricky that can get. This is because the recording’s quality might not necessarily be the best, and also depending on how fast you type or write, there’s a good chance that you’ll be mashing on the rewind button quite a bit.
Have you ever looked at someone’s face and thought to yourself, “Yea, that person looks like they would enjoy a 2 piece chicken combo, with a side of coleslaw, and an iced lemon tea,”? We’re pretty sure that there isn’t a relation between how someone looks and what they like to eat, but apparently that’s what Baidu and KFC in China are trying to do.
