Santa will need some serious help and logistics overhaul to keep up with his operations. His data requirements are both massive and complex – ingesting billions of requests, processing IoT data for predictive analytics and achieving same-day delivery worldwide. How can he transform his operations in the digital age?
There’s a new way to look out for fractures and potholes in the road. And, it doesn’t need eyes to see them. But, it does need a camera mounted on its dashboard. It’s the crux of a system that uses computer vision and machine learning to read the surface of a road.
Creating fully autonomous vehicles at scale means solving not just thousands of problems, but literally millions and billions of vehicle issues and driving scenarios. There may be light at the end of the tunnel, though. Artificial intelligence (AI) could take on these challenges by predicting passenger journeys: where passengers are going, when they need to arrive, and what stops they need to make.
