Curious...
I'm wondering how people generally define "connected car" technology? Is it vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructrure (V2I) communications that allow for smart traffic algorithms and autonomous transportation? Or are we talking more along the lines of passengers watching Netflix while going from A to B? (Or both?)

Or is there something even more? Will connected car tech allow for a revolution in shipping and delivery services? Is it the broader effects beyond just having cars wirelessly connected that makes people predict that connected cars will be more important than IoT health services?

Re: Curious...
@mhhf1ve My first thought is V2V and total automation, but I think everything that you bring up would fall under that blanket.

The tech junkie in me LOVES these ideas, but the possibility of interference from hackers, broken connections, or even nature makes me super nervous.

Connected Car Oh My!
There's no doubt why a connected car would be the heavy favorite. Especially if it could receive more signal than current capabilities. (I just spent about 50+ hours on the road with two toddlers - streaming Netflix for them and Pandora for my husband and I would have been a sanity saver!) Obviously, security would be a necessary measure, and everyone would want a fairly steady stream, no matter where they drove. I'm sure these would initially be problems, but would hope they could be ironed out. It's likely a long time coming, but one can dream, right?

Re: Curious...
@mhhf1ve  My preference and initial thought is the ability for vehicles to have access to apps, such as Pandora and Netflix. My biggest concern would be losing the signal, particurlarly on longer drives, where I would find the access more useful. Total automation honestly scares me. But I'm a bit of a control freak. What if someone created some kind of virus to override the total automation that would send the cars careening out of control? To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of the idea of V2V either - it would worry me that other cars could get access to my most traveled routes, times and what not. People are crazy these days, road rage is already out of control. We don't need to give people with no rationale more information.

What about this--this should potentially horrify us all?

Google's Art Machine Just Wrote Its First Song


google magenta music

What it is: Can machines create art? According to Google, yes -- its Magenta program, announced last week at Moogfest, has already composed a 90-second piano melody. The composition was created with a trained neural network built on top of the open-source TensorFlow system.

Why it's important: Google wants to build an artists' community around machine-generated art, and Magenta is the first step to building generative systems that musicians and artists can use as part of their natural creation process

Re: Connected Car Oh My!
With every car having a xm radio why do they not find a way to transmitted a signal needed so that we can get updates on the weather and traffic and listen to Pandora. The need for more information when going on the road seem to get bigger every day. The cost of customer using their cellphone data will need to be better so it will not cost the customer more than they need to pay for the use of service on the road.
