This episode contains: We are joined again by Ben Lawless to talk about Star Trek. First we get down to science.
You Built a Time Machine Out of a Car?: Deep learning enables real-time imaging around corners. Detailed, fast imaging of hidden objects could help self-driving cars detect hazards. Researchers have harnessed the power of a type of artificial intelligence known as deep learning to create a new laser-based system that can image around corners in real time. With further development, the system might let self-driving cars ‘look’ around parked cars or busy intersections to see hazards or pedestrians.
Sci-Fi: Before we get to Picard, we talk about Avenue 5, Foundation by Isaac Asimov, The Expanse TV show, Children of Mars, and then finally Picard!
