How AI Helps Keep NASCAR Drivers Safe

Bryan Goodman, an engineer with Argo AI / Ford Motor Company, spoke at the GPU Technology Conference last week about how his team applies deep learning originally built to develop self-driving cars to detect images of specific race cars.

Once it was trained, it started outperforming humans in identifying cars correctly, particularly when the number on the car was unclear or when the image was blurry
