Comment: Driving into San Francisco costs (Score 1) 1137

by AIXadmin (#27868425) Attached to: Your Commuting Costs By Car Vs. Train?

My commute by car is 37.9 miles each way to my job in San Francisco. According to Google Maps, it costs me $22.18 to drive into San Francisco each way, not counting the Bay Bridge toll at 4.00, plus parking at 10-20 dollars a day.

This adds up $68.36 round trip to drive to my job in San Francisco per day.

BART takes 20 minutes longer and costs me 10 dollars per round trip. Which one do you think I take?


Recognizing Scenes Like the Brain Does 115

Roland Piquepaille writes "Researchers at the MIT McGovern Institute for Brain Research have used a biological model to train a computer model to recognize objects, such as cars or people, in busy street scenes. Their innovative approach, which combines neuroscience and artificial intelligence with computer science, mimics how the brain functions to recognize objects in the real world. This versatile model could one day be used for automobile driver's assistance, visual search engines, biomedical imaging analysis, or robots with realistic vision. Here is the researchers' paper in PDF format."
