"It's fake smart."
Possibly the most succinct description of this technology to date.
"However, current state-of-the-art CNNs are very susceptible to random noise such as rain or snow in the real world, [which is] a problem for autonomous driving. "
Well that's a bit of a b**ger if you've implemented you're autonomous vehicle system using them, isn't it?
My instinct is that this should have been obvious from the mathematics underlying CNN's. Yet apparently no one picked it up.
Or was it that people did, but hoped no one would notice?
