4:30 PM Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Automated Vehicles (AV): Exploring Tools, Algorithms, and Emerging Issues

Many companies have already rolled out AI-powered driver-assist features such as automatic braking, collision avoidance systems, pedestrian and cyclists’ alerts, cross-traffic alerts, and intelligent cruise controls. With further advances in technology, AI promises to further revolutionize the automotive industry. In this session, we will look at the various applications of AI for autonomous vehicles; examine their impact on this nascent industry, and how Internet-of-Things (IoT)  and Big Data can play a part in making life easier for drivers.
