"It's able to simultaneously evaluate multiple sections of the image -- a departure from previous systems that considered parts of an image one by one".
Wait, uh, this is cutting edge AI? What autonomous system can't evaluate multiple sections of an image
"convolutional neural network [which] picks up on specific features like shapes, symbols, and numbers in the image to decide which type of sign it most likely depicts."
Uh, what? You mean the have an algorithm that can decide on types of street signs based on the image? Wow. Truly cutting edge. Autonomous cars are truly right around the corner.
