Tim Wong, Director of Technical Program Management for Autonomous Vehicles, NVIDIA presents on the following:
- How artificial intelligence should be programmed
- Is it sufficient to employ end-to-end learning using cameras that watch people drive and then put it through the deep neural net, or are AI systems are fatally flawed because human behavior causes accidents
- Should OEMs be focusing on an integrated approach?
- Expert systems as well as cameras, an algorithm that you combine with deep learning
