Digital assistants help you at the bank, and at your insurance and travel agencies. The implementation of autonomous systems requires sensors that enable them to perceive their surroundings and recognise situations, objects or obstacles. This not only enables machines and systems to offer us better and higher quality services, but also offers us an opportunity to disrupt existing businesses using entirely new approaches. Autonomous systems also offer opportunities for safer operation in connection with dirty, dangerous, remote or monotonous tasks for which human intervention is not desirable. Autonomy can also result in increased capacity and efficiency, and can enable rapid responses to given situations. It can also provide human operators with a precise situational overview.
Deep learning utilizes GPUs to efficiently train neural networks for learning representations from large (labeled) image databases.
