Artificial intelligence entering new stage as vehicle for entertainment

UK company Roborace unveils real self-driving race car, envisions exciting AI-AI competition

Roborace's AI-controlled race car.

PALO ALTO, U.S. -- In Paris on May 20, a sleek, streamlined vehicle colored black, white and fluorescent yellow moved slowly around a race course on a blocked-off road. The futuristic vehicle looked like a winged torpedo and had a periscope-like camera-equipped object protruding from the rear of its body.

The vehicle looked similar to a Formula One racing car, except that it was electric, and had no driver's seat. Logos saying "Roborace" festooned its body.
