From Transformers to Autonomous Systems

From Transformers to Autonomous Systems

This is a guest post by Edgar Lobaton – Autonomous systems are becoming a reality in our everyday lives. A few examples that most of us have seen in the news include autonomous vehicles such as the Google Car, and autonomous stores such as Amazon Go. All of these systems require sophisticated sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence in order to make them work, which fascinates me.
