COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 2



>> How do you turn a Porsche Panamera into a car that drives itself? Well, it turns out, all you need is a smartphone and five weeks of training. At east that's how long it took Huawei's Mate 10 Pro to master the road, courtesy of an AI enabled camera.
>> It has been trained to identify about 1,000 objects. And because it's AI, it can learn new objects as well. And when it recognizes the object, the camera scanning the road conditions, the phone understands what is in the road. And it also understands what actually is that element?
>> The AI camera was originally designed to anticipate a user's photography habits. But now, it can distinguish between objects such as cats, dogs, balls and bikes. And tell the car what to do should any cross its path.>> Now, there's something very unnerving about being in a car that's moving without anyone at the wheel.
Instead what's controlling this car is this phone on the dashboard here, that's scanning for potential obstacles in its path. And so far, so good.>> Huawei's even done a demonstration with a living obstacle, whose good behavior no doubt helped. The project aims to highlight the power of existing AI technology, a key theme of this year's Mobile World Congress, but one that some say should be treated with caution.
Gimmick or not, Huawei's stunt proves AI's potential. And they believe they're the ones in the driving seat.
