Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Courts Google

The most consistent criticism against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has been that they are behinds the times, in terms of automotive technology. That is actually a valid argument. Sergio Marchionne has prioritized quantity over quality in order to get Fiat Chrysler Automobiles back onto clear waters. That technique is not unique to FCA. Countless automakers employed that exact same mass product

NHTSA: Google AI Is Like People

Anyone remember A.I. Artificial Intelligence? Don’t feel too bad if you don’t: it was a kinda mediocre Spielberg flick starring the kid from The Sixth Sense as an android designed to feel human emotions.

We all know Google for its ubiquitous search engine, but there will come a day when the world also knows it for its self-driving vehicles.

Where self-driving vehicles like the Google Car (pictured) often fall short is their strict adherence to the rules of the road. While it may sound counterintuitive, the bigg

What is Baidu, 什麼是 Google?

Baidu, is a key competitor to Google, and the average american has probably never even heard of it... until recently that is.

Potential Partnership: Google and Ford

The future of cars is steering itself towards autonomous technology; surprisingly, it is not an automaker guiding that charge, but Google.
