Google reported on the start of testing of new tools based on machine learning. Artificial intelligence uses neural networks of cloud service AutoML to recognize human speech and translate texts, as well as search for objects on images. In addition, the company launched alpha testing of tensor processors.

Google's goal was to provide machine learning for companies and developers who lack knowledge or resources to solve problems. Therefore AI learns to recognize human speech and translate texts. These skills are taught in the AutoML Natural Language and AutoML Translate services, respectively.

AI is empowerment, and we want to democratize that power for everyone and every business — from retail to agriculture, education to healthcare. AI is no longer a niche in the tech world — it’s the differentiator for businesses in every industry. And we’re committed to delivering the tools that will revolutionize them.

In addition to these tools, Google introduced:

  • Cloud Vision API, which learns to recognize handwriting from PDF and TIFF files. It also determines the location of the object in the image.
  • AI Contact Center is a tool designed for telephone conversations with subscribers. During the call, it recognizes human speech and tries to solve the problem. In case of failure, the AI ​​redirects the subscriber to the human operator (in Google it is called "agent's assist") and reports the information received.
  • Alpha testing of the third generation of tensor processors.

The company seeks to increase the presence of AI in all spheres of life in order to simplify it and direct it to development. Cloud service AutoML appeared in January 2018, and six months later beta testing began.

Tesla intends to open the source code of the security system of its cars for third-party manufacturers. This was announced by Elon Musk after the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas. He also thanked the participants for improving the protection of the Tesla and SpaceX software.

With the opening of the source code, the technology of protection of electric cars Tesla will be free to use any auto concern. Security software should protect cars from intruders who are able to hack electric cars and gain access to remote control.

Great Q & A at defcon last night. Thanks for helping make Tesla & SpaceX more secure! Planning to open-source Tesla vehicle security software for free use by other car makers. Extremely important to a safe self-driving future for all.

With the use of technology by competing companies, Tesla development companies can become a standard for car safety. Assistance to third-party firms in strengthening the protection of electric cars from burglary can positively affect the reputation of the company.

In May 2017, Ilon Mask announced the lack of reliability of automatic driving systems. However, according to his forecasts, in 2019 cars can already ride without the help of the driver.
