This year's Distinguished Lecture Series kicks off with a lecture by Raquel Urtasun who is a pioneer in autonomous driving systems, and a Professor of CS at the University of Toronto. Raquel now leads a self-driving startup waabi.com and her work I think will be of interest across a wide range of research areas. She will speak about self-driving cars and AI.
Self-driving is one of the most exciting and important technologies of this generation. Once solved at scale, it will change the world as we know it. The industry has made meaningful progress, but commercial deployment is still limited by traditional approaches that don’t take full advantage of the power of AI, and are technically cumbersome and costly to scale. AI is our single greatest key to unlocking self-driving. In this talk, I will discuss our breakthrough AI-first approach—bringing the promise of self-driving closer to commercialization than ever before.
