SUMMARY

Hussein Mehanna, Head of Artificial Intelligence at Cruise, joins Scale AI CTO, Brad Porter, for a fireside chat to discuss how Cruise has approached the challenge of building safe autonomous vehicles that are ready for the real world. Together they explore what it means to be 'AI-native' as opposed to 'AI-first' and how one can organize broad multi-disciplinary teams to build AI applications in a continuously iterative way. In this discussion, Hussein explores the key questions that need to be answered when building safe autonomous vehicles. When creating AI models, how do you evaluate progress and ensure it's the correct type of progress? How do you design for safety when AV vehicles get safer, and potential learning examples become rarer? Is it possible to develop an AI model that can safely handle scenarios it has never seen before? Join this session to hear the key experiences and learnings from one of the leaders of autonomous vehicle development.
