SUMMARY

The road to autonomous vehicles is a long, and winding one. The concept of a vehicle without a driver isn’t new. We’ve seen concept cars and sci-fi mock-ups of the idea for decades, so why is now the time for autonomous vehicles to come into our reality? Zoox’s Head of Data Science, Eric Chu, explains in this talk that we are at a critical time when artificial intelligence, data science, and computing power are coming together to bring the vision of reimagining autonomous vehicles built for AI to drive and riders to enjoy.
