Event description

Description

Topic: "Self Driving Cars - What's Around the Corner?"

We are pleased to announce that Professor Richard Korf, will be on hand to present and lead an interactive dinner discussion on the field of self-driving cars, their potential benefits to individuals and society, the current state of the art, the prospects for the future, and some potential roadblocks to their mainstream adoption.

Although Rich’s presentation will focus largely on the socio-economic implications of autonomous vehicles, there will be ample opportunity to drill-down on both the technical and business imperatives that underscore their adoption.”
