[Recent CUBE Related News] How Cube Intelligence Plan To Make Our Cars Secure

Image
Cube Intelligence is a company looking to be at the forefront of making autonomous vehicles secure using blockchain technology. Having just finished selling out their ICO in just a matter of hours, we want to explore why there has been such an interest in Cube and what we can expect from them over the coming years. Most of us already know that a reality with fully automated vehicles is no longer a matter of if but when. Huge companies such as Google, Uber, Tesla, and (more quietly) Amazon are all developing this technology, racing to be the first company to have their autonomous vehicle technology go mainstream. There are regular tests being carried out, such as a 2,400 mile trip across the US by Embarks’ self-driving truck and also by a number of companies in California, a state that has already revised its road laws to allow testing and use of fully autonomous vehicles.

For advocates of a driverless future, safety for car passengers is a driving force (excuse the pun) behind the te…

[Recent CUBE Related News] What Now For The Autonomous Car Industry?

Image
The autonomous car industry has suffered its greatest setback to date following Uber’s self driving car’s fatal collision with pedestrian, Elaine Herzberg in Arizona, USA. The incident made global headlines and, being the first accident of its kind, has raised further questions and concerns about self-driving car technology. So how has the industry reacted and what does the future now hold for autonomous vehicles?


A New York Times investigation has found that Uber’s self driving cars were not performing as expected months before the fatal collision. Through sources and documents obtained by the New York Times they were able to report that as of March this year Uber was finding it hard to meet its goal in Arizona of 13 miles per intervention [by the onboard safety driver]. Taken into context, Waymo’s self-driving car tests reported that in California their drivers would have to intervene on average every 5,600 miles. Following the incident, Uber immediately halted their testing across t…

Autonomous vehicles present numerous advantages for deep-pocketed companies, hence the race to bring them to market. Some of the notable vehicles with autonomous features include Tesla's Model 3 and the Audi A8. These companies and their competitors are all hoping to become the first major player to provide a competitive autonomous solution due to the immense economic potential.
The biggest benefit for society is the potential decrease in road accident rates. It’s estimated that 90% of the 1.2 million car accident deaths around the world are caused by human error and despite the recent fatality involving a Female from Arizona and a

What Will The World Of Connected And Autonomous Vehicles Look Like?

Image
The autonomous car industry is moving at a rapid pace, and the implementation of full scale autonomy is closer than you might think. Technology that provides benefits to society and an increase in the share value of a company tends to get adopted very quickly, and autonomous vehicles will follow this trend. However, what will the world of connected and autonomous vehicles actually look like? The answer might surprise you and seem like science-fiction. But if you were to describe the internet to the average person on the street 100 years ago, then that too would have seemed like science-fiction.
The nature of the road will change The current design of the road is to aid the driver to make a safe journey from point A to point B. This includes posts with road signs, lines on the road and traffic lights. However, AI may not need the same kind of help to safely navigate the roads. What were typically perceived essential elements of a road may become obsolete. GPS will be a main feature tha…

AI Predictions for 2018

Image
In 2017, artificial intelligence gained a lot of momentum as development and utilisation took a serious step in the right direction. For example, chatbots were developed to assist with customer service and algorithms regarding customer targeting became more comprehensive. In 2018, things are going to get even more interesting as that momentum will carry through and lead to new breakthroughs.
Here we will examine the biggest AI predictions worth paying attention to in 2018. The implications of these new trends have the potential to completely transform the way business is done, and even how we live.
Blockhain Technology and AI The majority of cryptocurrencies are currently powered by Blockhain technology, an invention by Satoshi Nakamoto. It is basically a way of recording transactions, with the data not being stored in a centralised location. Therefore, hackers will have a harder time corrupting the data. Unfortunately, hackers can weaponize AI and bend it to their will. Combining Block…
