With the power of AI and Big Data analysis, urban traffic bureaus are now able to fight overcrowded streets through processing real-time data and predicting future activity on the roads. The AI can assess its own predictions and become more accurate over time, paving the way for automated driving. The Tianchi competition will challenge its participants to look critically at these models, improve upon them, and create new solutions to solve urban gridlock.
