`stop, thief!` waymo screams at uber

Google’s self-driving car spinoff, Waymo, is charging a former employee, now at Uber, with stealing trade secrets by the gigabytes—claiming damages of at least US $500 million. What’s more, Waymo reconstructs the alleged crime in amazing detail, including an attempt by the main alleged perpetrator to cover his tracks.Waymo says in a blog post that the secrets involve its lidar sensing system, the crown jewel in its self-driving design. Waymo recently announced home-designed lidar sets with overlapping ranges and functions, the first such system in the self-driving business.“Recently, we received an unexpected email,” Waymo says. “One of our suppliers specializing in lidar components sent us an attachment (apparently inadvertently) of machine drawings of what was purported to be Uber’s lida

uber denies waymo self-driving tech theft

Uber has denied stealing autonomous car technology from Alphabet’s Waymo, after the Google spin-off accused the ride-sharing firm of copying its sensor technology. The allegations were made earlier this week, with Waymo saying that it was alerted to the issue inadvertently when a supplier sent over schematics of one of Uber’s LIDAR designs. That design – for the sensor rig which scans the world around a self-driving car, mapping it in real-time – was strikingly similar to technology Waymo says it had developed itself. An investigation, the company said, revealed that a former employee had downloaded masses of data on Waymo’s LIDAR development before leaving the firm. Andrew Levandowski subsequently set up Otto, a rival autonomous vehicle technology company. Uber then acquired that business

waymo's fight with uber might be the first shot in a self-driving car ip war

Waymo filed a lawsuit yesterday accusing Uber of stealing the secret designs of circuit boards and laser ranging lidars used in its self-driving cars. Like all legal complaints, it ends with a long wish list of “reliefs” it wants the federal court in California to deliver, but the ramifications of this lawsuit could stretch far beyond financial damages or legal costs.“For years I’ve warned about a potential automated driving patent war that could rival the notorious smartphone patent war,” says Bryant Walker-Smith, a law professor at the University of South Carolina and an expert in self-driving regulations. As autonomous vehicles transition from amusing gimmicks to money-making products, who controls the key intellectual property could determine which companies thrive and which fall by th

uber ugliness unmasks silicon valley's bro culture

The world was shocked—shocked, I say—to learn this week that female employees are routinely sexually harassed and discriminated against in Silicon Valley.
Susan J. Fowler’s blog recounting her “strange, fascinating, and slightly horrifying” year as an engineer at Uber unleashed a fury of condemnations, hastily chased by a maelstrom of mea culpas from CEO Travis Kalanick—who’s grown well-practiced in the art ever since last month’s #DeleteUber campaign began.
Terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Uber
Uber, with its history of flouting regulations and ignoring ethical standards, is the Valley’s made-to-order villain. “We definitely see Uber as a bottom-feeder of the tech industry when it comes to issues of fairness and equity,” Orson Aguilar, president of economic justice organization Gr

google’s lawsuit against uber revolves around frickin’ lasers

Google spent years developing its lidar system—and says Uber stole the whole thing. The post Google’s Lawsuit Against Uber Revolves Around Frickin' Lasers appeared first on WIRED.

investors and employees aren't buying uber's sexism 'probe'

Investors and Silicon Valley legends Mitch Kapor and Freada Kapor Klein also slammed Kalanick's investigation. "We are disappointed to see that Uber has selected a team of insiders to investigate its destructive culture and make recommendations for change," they wrote in a blog post. "To us, this decision is yet another example of Uber's continued unwillingness to be open, transparent and direct."In Fowler's explosive post, she described how Uber's HR department ignored her sexual harassment complaints because her boss was a "high performer." She later learned that he had done the same thing to other female engineers even though she was told it was his "first offense."Managers also blocked employees transfers for her and other employees, often despite perfect performance reports. In one pa

uber's credibility crisis is getting harder to avoid

It's the same company where an exec improperly tracked Bhuiyan's Uber on the way to a meeting in 2014, before employee access to the "God View" was restricted. It's also the same company with an exec that openly discussed hiring investigators to dig up dirt on journalists like Pando founder Sarah Lacy-- and was not fired. Last year, court documents revealed how the company hired a corporate research firm to actually investigate a Portland attorney and his client.Over the last few years, there have been many stories gradually chipping away at Uber's reputation -- I haven't mentioned its disputes with local governments over access, drivers over pay and benefits, and rider safety -- but few have stuck. Now, the company is facing a storm of negative attention that keeps bringing people back to

how driverless cars could leave humans behind within five years

Self-driving cars – regarded by many Australians as a form of "science fiction" – will be commercially available within five years and could eventually become so advanced that humans are regarded as "drunk robots" who are banned from driving, a federal parliamentary inquiry has heard.In a submission to the inquiry, the mayors of Australia's capital cities say they expect autonomous cars to become commonplace between 2020 and 2025 and be safely moving in traffic with traditional cars.
Google has experimented with its own self-driving car known as Waymo. Photo: SuppliedThe mayors say the shift to autonomous cars could require a "complete reimagining" of the long-term infrastructure needs of cities, reduce the need for inner-city car parks and encourage people to live further away from work

strike on; ola, uber drivers plan rallies

The ongoing strike by drivers attached to Ola and Uber is likely to continue for the fourth consecutive day, with drivers seeking permission from the police to stage a protest and take out rallies on Sunday.Protesting the ‘drastic’ reduction in incentives and the fines for poor ratings and denial of duty, the drivers claimed that both the mobile-based cab aggregators were attaching more vehicles to their platforms even as the existing ones rarely get rides. “Since the companies are not addressing our problems, the government should intervene,” a drivers’ union leader said.However, Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy said the issue is between the private companies and their employees, and the government cannot intervene. “The transport commissioner has tried to bring both the parties togethe
