Currently the iSee team is working on a full-stack solution for a vehicle to drive in a complex environment. In order to be safely in motion, a vehicle needs to predict the future extensively, even in unfamiliar situations, in order to avoid risk and harm. iSee has enabled the new AI thanks to deep learning, but it goes beyond this.
