CASPA 2017 Spring Symposium: The Future Of Autonomous Driving03/04/2017 - 03/04/2017


The Future of Autonomous Driving

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are unarguably the hottest themes in the high-tech world this year. The technology is maturing and enabling an assortment of applications with one specific area – “Autonomous driving,” which stands out to have the most significant impact to the way we live. Join us to understand the technology of autonomous driving and the factors that drive us into the future of driverless cars.

The CASPA Symposium group is bringing you a timely and affluent spring symposium focusing on autonomous driving with expert presentations from the academia and the industry. The amazing lineup of speakers will help you to understand the technology, the issues, and the future outlook of autonomous driving. The speakers include the executive director of Stanford’s CARS, directors and experts from Intel, Lucid Motors, and Baidu, as well as several founders/CEO of startups. Due to sensitivity of the presentations, this event will not allow videotaping and photographing. You can only gain the insights in person so don’t miss the opportunity.
