ENABLING INTELLIGENT & AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITIES THROUGH COLLABORATION
What is the Autonomy Institute
A Sematech for Autonomy and AI at the edge. Autonomy Institute(501c3) is accelerating the “Path to Commerce” for intelligent and autonomous systems. This includes Digital Infrastructure, Autonomy, and AI at the edge. It is a government, industry, academia and public alliance to create the policies, markets, jobs, and community benefits of autonomy, starting with the Intelligent and Autonomous Infrastructure that is the equivalent of the Eisenhower Interstate Highways.
Though Sematech didn’t’ need infrastructure, the Autonomy Institute does. There is a tsunami of technology coming to cities and it needs leadership to assure it meets community needs. That’s where the Public-Private Partnership (P3) comes in to deploy Public Infrastructure Network Nodes (PINN). The PINN will be as critical to a city as roads, power, telecommunications, and water infrastructure.
“Investment in a 21st-century Intelligent & Autonomous Infrastructure is among the highest priorities for stimulating economic expansion, national security, and job growth. Edge computing, 5G wireless, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Assured PNT, and resilient electrical grids will drive the largest infrastructure buildout in our nation’s history.”
“Robots Can Restore Our Humanity” – John Hagel “…an opportunity to redefine work at a very fundamental level. If we do it right, we might actually be able to evolve a form of work that taps into our uniquely human capabilities and restores our humanity. The ultimate paradox is that this technology may become the powerful catalyst that we need to reclaim our humanity.”
Autonomous Mobility will drive New State and Federal Policy.
Local governments are struggling today with permitting disparate systems that need to be a single open and intelligent infrastructure. The integration process is ready for a jump start and it is vital to our national competitiveness and security. The country that does this well first will likely capture the preponderance of the economic benefit.
The Autonomy Institute will provide a reference architectures and blueprints for the development of Autonomous Infrastructure Labs, Autonomous Mobility Corridors, and full Autonomous City deployments. This will stimulate mutual testing and development regions to advance autonomous system deployment.
