The Current State and Future Direction of Self-Driving Cars
January 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Philadelphia Israel Chamber of Commerce and and University City Science Center present The Current State and Future Direction of Self-Driving Cars, How Israel, the US, and China Lead the Innovation.
In 2017, Intel acquired Mobileye, an Israeli company, for over $15B. It is the leading supplier of software that enables Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) and technology to support the three pillars of Autonomous Driving – Sensing, Mapping, and Driving Policy.
Our guest speaker is Jeff Moskowitz, a Philadelphia native and Machine Learning Engineer at Mobileye. Jeff will talk about self-driving cars: the current state and future direction. He’ll present an overview of the autonomous driving industry for 2019 — the different approaches being tried, the challenges involved and what’s coming next. We’ll take a look at how Israel, the US, and China are dominating the development of self-driving technologies. Jeff will also host office hours for 1:1 discussions from 3-5pm at Venture Café. Venture Café Thursday Gatherings happen each week from 3-8pm. Explore here.
