The world seems to change its course everyday with the benefits of Machine Learning.
Various companies are leaning towards this rapidly growing branch of Artificial Intelligence and bringing forward advancements which were unthought-of before.
Tesla, one of the leading producers of electric cars is one of the most important companies which is actively implementing AI in its course of automation.
The very important requirement for any machine learning model is ample amount of data and Tesla'a fleet of approximately 500,000 cars help in achieving this objective quite easily. Here the question arise, what is this data and why is it required ?
The answers to these question aren’t that difficult.
Data suggests to actions of cars, sudden occurrences of pedestrian, turns in roads, so on and so forth.
Data is the key factor for predictive analysis. More the data more is the precision in prediction. Predicting the movement of adjacent cars, pedestrians, etc. is crucial for the safe completion of the process of automatic driving.
Whenever there is an incorrect prediction, the model takes a snapshot and later uploads it to Tesla’s training set. Tesla is equipped with a prediction neural network which efficiently learn correlations from the past and future just from temporal sequences of events. This feature reduces human interference in the entire process and makes it easier and even more effective than most other training models.
After the process of detection the other key aspect of automatic driving is the process of path planning and driving policy. If we have to put it in simple words as to what path planning means, it would be the instantaneous decision that a car takes like say for example changing lanes, taking a left turn on green light, by passing a slow car, parking without human interference and so on.
All these above mentioned cases need one thing in common and that is the aid of imitation learning. Imitation learning is nothing but a neural network develops the understanding of what a human driver would do on the onset of these situations on road. The machine predicts, learns and takes an action accordingly. This entire process is being implemented quite successfully by Tesla.
The advancements that this bigshot company is bringing in the market is definitely commendable. Experienced people are working on making these neural networks more and more enhanced. Tesla is dedicated to working to bust the myth that automatic driving is fatal and must be avoided. A leader from the front, Tesla is a company that has been in the limelight for all the good reasons. It is here as an example and an inspiration putting forward technology and aiding the lives of the common people through the boons of it.
