Uber ATG's self-driving vehicles measure a multitude of possible scenario variations to answer the age-old question: "how does the pedestrian cross the road?"
Uber AI introduces Meta-Graph, a new few-shot link prediction framework that facilitates the more accurate training of ML models that quickly adapt to new graph data.
Uber AI released a new framework on top of Pyro that lets experimenters seamlessly automate optimal experimental design (OED) for quicker model iteration.
Enhanced POET: Open-Ended Reinforcement Learning through Unbounded Invention of Learning Challenges and their Solutions
Building upon our existing open-ended learning research, Uber AI released Enhanced POET, a project that incorporates an improved algorithm and allows for more diverse training environments.
Managing multiple machine learning models to enable self-driving vehicles is a challenge. Uber ATG developed a model life cycle for quick iterations and a tool for continuous delivery and dependency management.
We built a backtesting service to better assess financial forecast model error rates, facilitating improved forecast performance and decision making.
In 2019, Uber AI built tools and systems that leverage ML to improve location accuracy and enhance real-time forecasting, among other applications on our platform.
