Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive and mobility Seventeen U.S. states must decide whether or not to follow California's new law that mandates that all new cars, pickups and SUVs be electric or hydrogen-powered by 2035. The Clean Air Act dictates that states must follow federal guidelines unless they follow certain components of California's rules. A research firm says consumers are most passionate about a high-tec... » read more

System Bits: Nov. 7


Exposing logic errors in deep neural networks In a new approach meant to brings transparency to self-driving cars and other self-taught systems, researchers at Columbia and Lehigh universities have come up with a way to automatically error-check the thousands to millions of neurons in a deep learning neural network. Their tool — DeepXplore — feeds confusing, real-world inputs into the ... » read more
