Denso and Toshiba to develop AI modeled on the human brain

LinkedIn +

Denso and Toshiba are to jointly develop AI for vehicles, modeled on the human brain. The deep neural network (DNN) technology will be used in image recognition systems independently developed by the two companies.

DNN is an algorithm modeled on the neural networks of the human brain, which Denso and Toshiba are hoping will be able to perform image recognition processing at an even higher level.

In DNN-based image recognition, a computer can extract and learn the characteristics of objects on its own, significantly improving the accuracy of detection and identification of a wide range of objects.

DNN technology has progressed rapidly over recent years, and the technology will be refined and implemented into smaller in-vehicle processors to provide additional support for automated driving systems.
