Uber uses machine learning for business and personal rides

It's not surprising that business travelers sometimes forget to switch their payment method from personal to business when riding with Uber. These innocent mistakes are common with the rise of 'bleisure' trips that mix business and leisure - and they not only hinder productivity for the employee that needs to figure out how to fix the error, but also add extra steps for the travel manager or account administrator.

Uber urges drivers to go electric

Studies have found that when shared and electric mobility are properly combined, along with automation, we can shrink the number of vehicles on the road and reduce transportation's climate footprint. That's why Uber has launched the EV Champions Initiative, a pilot program for driver-partners to deliver at least 5 million EV rides over the next year.

Autonomous vehicles: researchers make advances with new algorithm

A self-driving vehicle has to detect objects, track them over time, and predict where they will be in the future in order to plan a safe manoeuvre. These tasks are typically trained independently from one another, which could result in disasters should any one task fail.

After Uber, Tesla incidents, can artificial intelligence be trusted?

Considering last month's fatal crash of a self-driving Uber that took the life of a woman in Tempe, Arizona, and the recent death of a test-driver of a semi-autonomous vehicle being developed by Tesla, peoples' trust in the technology behind autonomous vehicles may also have taken a hit.

A rollercoaster which charges your phone

Kinetic energy includes everything from the g-force and vibrations of the ride to the screams of the users. The devices fitted on to the train's carriages capture this energy before converting into electrical energy, which is stored in a power management unit throughout the day. This unit is then removed from the carriages by staff and deposited into the on-site mobile charging point, allowing guests to charge their mobile phone.
