NLP for autonomous mobility

State-of-the-art general-purpose AI models (such as GPT-3 by OpenAI) do not deal well with highly technical language or regulation. They do not have access to the latest information about products (specific terminology) and are known to produce unreliable answers. To solve this problem, deep-learning models need to be trained specifically on technical content, such as manuals and standards. These models power software solutions generating substantial added-value to OEMs, Vendors and Suppliers in the Autonomous space.
