Introducing Uber AI Labs

|7 December 2016|

USA

Uber announced this week the creation of its AI Labs in San Francisco, which will be “dedicated to cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and machine learning.”

The transportation tech giant has bought promising AI startup Geometric Intelligence, whose Founding CEO Gary Marcus will be the director of the new initiative. The 15 strong workforce at Geometric Intelligence will also form the initial team at Uber’s new lab.

“Uber is in the business of using technology to move people and things in the real world,” the Uber News team said. “It extends to teaching a self-driven machine to safely and autonomously navigate the world, whether a car on the roads or an aircraft through busy airspace or new types of robotic devices.”
