The previously unreported episode underscores White House counsel Donald McGahn’s precarious position in the Russia probe as he seeks to both mollify and protect his client, the commander in chief.
He has served as an adviser, a participant and most recently a witness in the continuing Russia investigation — a complex role that puts him at the center of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s examination of whether Trump sought to obstruct justice.
Lidar works much like radar, but instead of sending out radio waves it emits pulses of infrared light—aka lasers invisible to the human eye—and measures how long they take to come back after hitting nearby objects.
It does this millions of times a second, then compiles the results into a so-called point cloud, which works like a 3-D map of the world in real time—a map so detailed it can be used not just to spot objects but to identify them.
Once it can identify objects, the car’s computer can predict how they will behave, and thus how it should drive.
Our world has, without doubt, probably been in better shape, but considering the facts, it did look quite a lot bleaker: The Global Economic Outlook recently published by A.T. Kearney’s Global Business Policy Council didn’t paint a picture of blue skies, but no more than one with light clouds either.
By 2022, global growth is predicted to rise by 2.9 percent on average. Asia will continue to be the main driver, but things are also looking up in the European Union—and not just in central Europe, but in the south as well.
In Society 5.0, the world has moved past the information age and into one where technologies like the Internet of Things, big data, and artificial intelligence are leading to solutions that lead to better human life.
As envisioned by Japan’s government, it would lead to advances such as healthcare solutions for an aging society, grounded in data; improved transportation solutions for citizens in underserved areas, thanks to autonomous driving and other technologies; improved road infrastructure with support from AI and robots.
