Two intelligent vehicles are better than one

Researchers are working to improve the reliability and fault tolerance of intelligent vehicle systems by combining the data they gather with that from other vehicles. This can, for example, extend the field of view of a car that is behind another car. Using simulators and road tests, the team has …

Auto-fix tool gets more programmers to upgrade code, study finds

Failure to make necessary upgrades to software code can have dire consequences, such as the major data breach at Equifax. A recent study finds that auto-fix tools are effective ways to get programmers to make the relevant upgrades — if programmers opt to use them. Source link

Looking for errors in a 'black box'

Researchers are shining a light into the black box of deep learning systems with DeepXplore, the first automated white-box testing of such systems. Evaluating DeepXplore on real-world datasets, the researchers were able to expose thousands of unique incorrect corner-case behaviors. Source link

System could let thousands of researchers contribute to data analysis projects

Researchers have developed a new collaboration tool, dubbed FeatureHub, intended to make feature identification more efficient and effective. With FeatureHub, data scientists and experts on particular topics could log on to a central site and spend an hour or two reviewing a problem and proposing features. Software then tests myriad …
