SUMMARY

Austin Russell, CEO and Founder of Luminar, will join Alexandr Wang, CEO and Founder of Scale for a fireside chat. The two will discuss the parallel missions of their respective companies with the purpose of training better models on high-quality, labeled data collected from the best 3D sensors available for autonomous systems.

Wang will ask Russell about his journey from Stanford dropout to his company’s 2020 NASDAQ IPO, product development, and how he thinks about building the machine learning infrastructure to train better models on 3D point cloud data. Russell will explain why he believes high-quality 3D sensors are essential for safe autonomy, and why simple 2D imagery doesn’t suffice.

Russell was a 2013 Thiel Fellow, which allowed him to drop out of his undergraduate studies and focus on Luminar full-time. He also became the world’s youngest billionaire as a result of his company’s IPO.trans
