Since the early days of the pandemic, Cyngn has been using its 3D printers to produce critical PPE for the healthcare industry. The effort has been ongoing for eleven months.

In April, Emily McNamara, Cyngn’s Director of Operations, came across a campaign to bring more resources to bear on the problem of PPE shortages.

“The need was great and our equipment was just sitting there while we were all working remotely,” said McNamara. “This seemed like a real opportunity for us to contribute to the pandemic effort.”

While on Zoom calls, the company went to work implementing its PPE plan…


Formel D will help Cyngn deliver quality assurance and process optimization across the entire autonomous vehicle stack. The partnership marks a key milestone for Cyngn’s ongoing effort to deliver scalable, secure, and reliable autonomous vehicle solutions to a variety of industries and domains

MENLO PARK, Calif., March 4, 2021 (Newswire.com) — Cyngn, the autonomous vehicle organization, announced a partnership with Formel D, the international service provider to the automotive technology and supply industry. The collaboration will help Cyngn deploy DriveMod, its autonomous vehicle technology, across a variety of industries and applications.

“For us, the Formel D partnership was a perfect fit,” said Cyngn’s CEO Lior Tal. “For the last five years, we have been developing our autonomous driving technology and deploying it in a variety of industrial use cases. …


Although frequently interchanged in the self-driving vehicle space, it’s important to understand that automation and autonomous do not mean the same thing.

We can think of automation as a technology’s ability to perform rigid and repetitive tasks. The paths and functions of these technologies are usually programmed in advance and lack the ability to depart from that predetermined functionality — and when the unexpected happens, they usually require human intervention.

The Roomba is an example of this kind of automation. As the robotic vacuum meanders around your house, it knows that it needs to change directions when it hits a…


Transcript: So, what we’ve got for you today is a simulation of a warehouse environment that uses the UnReal Physics Engine to make a realistic representation of this space in the real-world.

Here, we’ve loaded Cyngn’s DriveMod, autonomous vehicle technology, into three warehouse vehicles in this simulation: blue, yellow, and red.

The views of each of these vehicles are represented in the three boxes at the top of your screen. They will give you a sense of how DriveMod processes the world around it.

By the way, none of this has been animated in advance so as we move…

Need a primer on AI? We’ve got you covered!

In working with many enterprise customers over the years, we’ve discovered that there are lots of misconceptions and misunderstandings about Artificial Intelligence. All of the resources we tried to point them to were never clear or thorough enough — so we decided to make our own.

In this guide, we’ll not only walk you through the essentials of Artificial Intelligence but help you locate it within your broader IT strategy. Learn what an AI model is, how it’s built, and finally, how data scientists can put the model to work at your organization.

Artificial intelligence is a software capability that…


Executive Summary

A SaaS company recently engaged Manceps to develop and deploy an AI-powered Interactive Voice Response (IVR) System to help them improve the speed and accuracy of their customer service phone system.

By deploying an end-to-end solution that integrated with existing datasets, the organization was able to offer its customers an extremely powerful AI-powered agent who could answer all sorts of questions, troubleshoot their issues, and otherwise anticipate their unique needs.

The Problem

Despite sophisticated advancements in smart assistants like Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa, interactive service agents have yet to provide a customer experience that doesn’t leave most users frustrated. …


AI and Machine Learning are giving those in the finance industry an unprecedented ability to automate underwriting, prevent fraud, and acquire new customers.

In the last few years, those in the finance and banking industry have started to see the power of bringing machine learning to their industry. Now financial institutions of all sizes are in a scramble to not only reduce bureaucracy but also increase the accuracy and fairness of the lending process.

Unfortunately, many financial institutions are still using a heuristic approach to manage complex, highly-regulated processes — this is to say, the rules and regulations of their processes are manually configured and updated using an army of (expensive) legal, financial, and computer programming experts.

What’s Driving the Urgency to Adopt AI?

A need for increased speed and…
