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.

At the Beijing conference, Intel introduced Neural Compute Stick 2, a device that facilitates the development of smart software for peripheral devices. These include not only network equipment, but also IoT systems, video cameras, industrial robots, medical systems and drones. The solution is intended primarily for projects that use computer vision.

Neural Compute Stick 2 is an autonomous neural network on a USB drive and should speed up and simplify the development of software for peripheral devices by transferring most of the computation needed for learning to the specialized Intel Movidius Myriad X processor. Neural Compute Engine, responsible for the high-speed neural network of deep learning.

The first Neural Compute Stick was created by Movidius, which was acquired by Intel in 2016. The second version is 8 times faster than the first one and can work on Linux OS. The device is connected via a USB interface to a PC, laptop or peripheral device.

Intel said that Intel NCS 2 allows to quickly create, configure and test prototypes of neural networks with deep learning. Calculations in the cloud and even access to the Internet for this is not needed.

The module with a neural network has already been released for sale at a price of $ 99. Even before the start of sales, some developers got access to Intel NCS 2. With its help, projects such as Clean Water AI, which use machine vision with a microscope to detect harmful bacteria in water, BlueScan AI, scanning the skin for signs of melanoma, and ASL Classification, real-time translates sign language into text.

Over the Movidius Myriad X VPU, Intel worked with Microsoft, which was announced at the Developer Day conference in March 2018. The AI ​​platform is expected to appear in upcoming Windows updates.
