By 2040, 95% of new vehicles sold will be fully autonomous.
Two reasons why this is revolutionary:
Self driving cars will become a multi-trillion dollar industry because of this impact. What could you do with 3 extra years? This is the question driving innovation from tech-leaders like Elon Musk and Google. But before we can get there, we need to understand the technology making this all possible, Reinforcement Learning.
Have you ever wondered why we like the food we like? Why we care so much about our social status? Or why we’re naturally risk-adverse?
Why are we the way we are today?
It comes down to one word: Evolution
We were no different than other animals in the animal kingdom. We hunted, we ate, we became the hunted, we died.
😮👈 That’s me right now
I’ve started writing this after listening to Naval Ravikant on the Joe Rogan Experience. I’m sure you’ve heard of both of them before. (And if you haven’t. My god, what a treasure trove there is waiting for you) There were so many moments that just made me go, “Oh shit” throughout the podcast, and this article is a chance to formalize all my thoughts, and maybe, just maybe, provide some value to you.
I’m thinking about how to structure this article, and I have 3 main principles:
In recent years, we’ve seen the emergence of Quantum Computing; spearheaded by companies such as D-Wave, Rigetti Computing, and IBM. In a nutshell (Kurzgesagt 😉), Quantum Computing will revolutionize computing, allowing us to solve complex computational problems that would have been impossible on classical computers.
Today, with classical computers:
Today, quantum computers:
Imagine a world where you could learn anything
🌎 👈 Here it is.
💻 👈 And here’s the thing that lets you do it.
Today, we live in a world with the internet. There are unfathomable amounts of knowledge on the internet, being only a couple of clicks away. When in history can a 17 year old like myself be working on cutting edge technology such as Machine Learning, Brain Machine Interfaces, and more.
This is the major problem with learning on the internet as it is today. There are so many things you can learn, but a lot of…
This is what traffic looks like with Self Driving Cars.
Imagine living in that world. A world where there are:
As I pointed out in my last article on Reinforcement Learning (which you should read before this), this is revolutionary for 2 main reasons:
What if I said I could give you the ability to fly? How crazy would that be. Imagine the ramifications of flight on your everyday life. The dream all of us have had, and the superpower, we always wished for.
It sounds like fiction to us. But there’s something much more normal which seems as fictitious as flight to about 7%, or 285 MILLION people around the world.
Imagine losing your vision. Suddenly, not being able to see the things around you. What problems would you face?
I know what you’re thinking. God dammit, it’s another article about Artificial Intelligence with a bunch of math that I’m not gonna understand, close tab…
This will be intuitive. I promise you. Now, continue.
Literally everyone, even my 50 year old high school teachers have heard about AI. It’s that thing in Google’s self driving cars. That thing that people are worried will take their jobs. However, not many people realize how Artificial Intelligence IS actually being used.
Passionate about Machine Learning, understanding the world, and other exponential technologies.
