AI in self driving vehicles - a practitioner's perspective

Submitted Jul 22, 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
