12:00 pm - 12:45 pm THE AUTONOMOUS CAR ELECTRONICS DOMAIN – AN EXERCISE IN CONSOLIDATION

The compute power and software complexity required for autonomous driving is pushing boundaries not seen before. How do we get this under control and ready for production?
• Identify proven and effective ways to safely and securely consolidate “mixed-criticality” autonomous system services without compromising safety and security
• Consider how these consolidation techniques can be effectively utilized on next generation high performance multicore automotive processors
• Understand the challenges of moving from proof of concept to purpose-build production ready autonomous vehicle electronics when considering DOT’s new “Vision for Safety”

12:45 pm - 1:45 pm LUNCH

1:45 pm - 2:30 pm DEEP LEARNING: SHOULD ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE BE EMULATING HUMANS?

Tim Wong, Director of Technical Program Management for Autonomous Vehicles,NVIDIA
  • How artificial intelligence should be programmed
  • Is it sucient 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
