AI in self driving vehicles - a practitioner's perspective
Submitted by Saad Nasser (@sdnssr) on Saturday, 22 July 2017
Ati Motors is creating an autonomous cargo vehicle, and uses machine learning extensively in its autonomy stack - from perception, object detection and tracking, to driving policy. The talk will take a breadth first approach to the problem space rather than focusing on any one particular area. The objective is to familiarise the audience with the range of real life applications within a single product context.
The talk will cover
- Vision - CNNs and more
- Driving policy - A good candidate for reinforcement learning
- Data collection and quality challenges
- Simulators - transfer learning
- Engineering challenges - performance, storage
