A week after it was bought by Amazon, Zoox engineers defect to Waymo — eek!

  • Last week, Amazon bought self-driving startup Zoox for over $1billion.
  • Now, two of Zoox’s longest serving engineers have left to work for Alphabet subsidiary and rival, Waymo.
  • Last week, e-commerce giant Amazon bought self-driving startup Zoox with the intention of helping it “realize its dream.” But Amazon doesn’t really have any business in robotaxis, so it’s not immediately clear what the online retailer is wanting to get out of the deal.
  • Some, including TNW, suggest that Amazon might eventually get Zoox to work on autonomous delivery robots.
  • According to an exclusive from The Information, two of Zoox’s longest serving and most senior engineers, James Philbin and Marc Wimmershoff, have left the company to go and work for rival Waymo, which is a sister company of Google.
  • A far more realistic outcome is that Amazon will use its existing business units and Zoox’s expertise to develop sustainable autonomous delivery robots.

How do Robots “find” themselves in an ever changing world?

  • It would be virtually impossible to navigate through all the content to find one image of a monkey wearing a red hat from a sequence of holiday snaps taken months or years ago.
  • In place of photos on a mobile phone, these robots must make sense of a continuous stream of video sequences (equivalent to millions of images) captured while in motion throughout their operational lifetime.
  • The good news, as shown in our work at 2019 ICCV, is that sequential reasoning outperforms bespoke deep learning-based approaches to solving the problem of scalable place recognition for robots.
  • Imagine this future scenario: autonomous cars that can work together to capture a real-time snapshot of what the world looks like at any given moment and how it changes from day to day.

Why Building an AI Decentralized Autonomous Organization (AI DAO)

  • Beyond the already complex challenge of implementing AI, some companies have started analyzing the possible benefits of building an AI Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (AI DAOs).
  • In this article, I will help you understand what we mean by Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), their strategic importance from a business model perspective as well as the key role of AI in the rise of DAOs. Let’s start by defining the key concept of this article.
  • It could begin with the automation of a small percentage of both managerial and administrative roles, but these percentages would increase over time as the company becomes more data-driven and smart contracts handle more and more complex tasks.
  • I believe large firms should already try to build proofs of concept to better understand how this new organization can impact their business models.
