How Hasty uses automation and rapid feedback to train AI models and improve annotation

Computer vision is playing an increasingly pivotal role across industry sectors, from tracking progress on construction sites to deploying smart barcode scanning in warehouses. But training the underlying AI model to accurately identify images can be a slow, resource-intensive endeavor that isn’t guaranteed to produce results. Fledgling German startup Hasty wants to help with the promise of “next-gen” tools that expedite the entire model training process for annotating images.

Hasty, which was founded out of Berlin in 2019, today announced it has raised $3.7 million in a seed round led by Shasta Ventures. The Silicon Valley VC firm has a number of notable exits to its name, including Nest (acquired by Google), Eero (acquired by Amazon), and Zuora (IPO). Other participants in the round include iRobot Ventures and Coparion.

Being Too Comfortable Using Partial Automation Can Encourage Drivers To Lose Focus

As drivers get more familiar with and develop trust in partial automation, they fidget with electronics and take both hands off the wheel more often. As a result, their attention problems grow and their focus slips. 

Those are the highlights of a new study that examined driver engagement behind the wheel of vehicles with various levels of automation and technology and underscored the need for better safety standards.

The findings were released on Thursday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a nonprofit financed by the insurance industry, based on new research conducted in conjunction with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AgeLab.

For the study, researchers studied the behavior of drivers of two vehicle models to determine if there

Software accelerating to daily or hourly releases, but automation not keeping pace

The pace of software releases continues to get more frenetic, and we’re getting close to the point where daily releases are almost commonplace. At the same time, IT shops aren’t quite ready to turn the whole process over to automation.

That’s the word from the latest survey of 1,324 IT managers and professionals released by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which finds release cycles have continued to speed up. Surprisingly, however, the use of automation to manage these cycles has slipped significantly.  The percentage of those who release software daily, or even multiple times a day, has increased to 29% from 27% last year, the survey’s authors report. Weekly release cycles are still the most common (26%), but more than half of respondents (55%) release weekly or more frequently. 

At the same time, the survey finds, there has been a shift away from fully automated cycles,
