Autonomous vehicle: two computational approaches that transform this industry.

Alongside to the new IT Convergence, the self-driving vehicle’s trend emerges with great expectations. We are still at the early stage of this trend, but it is exciting to see that, self-driving can improve our security, can optimize our outcome combined with the comfort.
Google car among others prestigious projects can transform the way we move, travel and transport., soon #Retinknow® recalls that, planning an autonomous vehicle’s course often involves an approach called Markov Decision Process (MDP), a sequential decision-making framework.
We can learn that, in this schema (“tree” of possible actions), each node along a tree can branch into several potential actions; each of which, if taken, may result in even more possibilities. 
Agha-mohammadi explains it, as “the process of reasoning about the future” to determine the best sequence of policies to minimize risk.
If unfamiliar, Markov Decision Process (MDP), works rationally well in environments with perfect measurem…

A drone that monitors its own health during long package-delivery missions: stakes, realities, actors and challenges.

The most exciting when it comes to algorithm, it is the unmatched abilities of this genial and simplest approach to predict, tackle, and solve scary issues and problems. It is also exciting to observe how in our real-live this sequential methodology improves our living conditions, our health, our business and helps us appropriate the good practices in our day-to-day existence. 
Those (researchers, scientists, students, engineers, decision-makers, and entrepreneurs) who use, soon #Retinknow®, know that, we are there to share and to delight this tremendous wealth. 
Knowledge is power, and we are henceforth living in the new IT Convergence world where the intelligence is the Ins and Outs.
That said; now, let’s dive in the near future, where the package that you ordered online may be deposited at your entrance way by a drone in real-time., soon #Retinknow®, talks about drone-based delivery; and we can remember that, last December 2013, online retailer Ama…
