Uber Setting Up Artificial Intelligence Lab In Toronto
Uber is setting up a lab in Toronto to develop artificial intelligence needed for autonomous cars to recognize objects so they can travel safely.
It’s the ride-hailing company’s first such lab outside the U.S. The company also does research in San Francisco and Pittsburgh. Uber says University of Toronto Associate Professor Raquel Urtasun (UHR-tah-sun) will lead the lab. The company says she’s among the world’s top artificial intelligence researchers. She will remain as a professor at the school one day per week.
