If you are into car races, the newly announced driverless car championship will likely appeal to you. Formula E and Kinetik have collaborated to launch Roborace in 2016. They are developing driverless vehicles that will use artificial intelligence to compete. The electrical vehicle racing series is a world first and is only just starting to show what automated automobiles are capable of.

Roborace will have ten teams using the same basic driverless cars. The races will take place on Formula E tracks in various major cities, with further details of the driverless car championship to come in the beginning of next year.

Challenges include developing the competitive software with AI that could anticipate obstacles in real time as well as analyzing risks and rewards.
