Dragomir Anguelov
Distinguished Scientist and Head of Research @ Waymo

Drago joined Waymo in 2018 to lead the Research team, which focuses on pushing the state of the art in autonomous driving using machine learning. Earlier in his career he spent eight years at Google; first working on 3D vision and pose estimation for StreetView, and later leading a research team which developed computer vision systems for annotating Google Photos. The team also invented popular methods such as the Inception neural network architecture, and the SSD detector, which helped win the Imagenet 2014 Classification and Detection challenges. Prior to joining Waymo, Drago led the 3D Perception team at Zoox.

SUMMARY

Experts working on autonomous vehicles will discuss the rapid pace of research and innovation in machine learning, highlighting the most exciting developments over the last few years and how they approach incorporating the constant advances into an autonomous vehicle safely. The panelists are industry leaders working at NVIDIA, Tesla, Waymo, and Wayve. They will also discuss the unique approaches each OEM takes to leverage machine learning in its self-driving stack, with some using end-to-end learning and others preferring modular learning, and each method's advantages and disadvantages. They will also discuss best practices for integrating complicated sensor suites, software, data management, and machine learning with engineering. Other challenges they will cover include collecting large amounts of data, managing, and labeling datasets, integrating ML models with the rest of the self-driving stack, and how to improve the driver continuously. They will also discuss the critical role of simulation in development, and the current state of self-driving cars and the most difficult challenges they face today, including scaling to new environments quickly.
