We are on the verge of a new era in which robotics and artificial intelligence will play an important role in our daily lives. Self-driving vehicles have the potential to redefine transportation as we understand it today. Our roads will become safer and less congested, while parking spots will be repurposed as leisure zones and parks. However, many technological challenges remain as we pursue this future. In this talk I will showcase the latest advancements we made in the quest towards self-driving vehicles at scale.

Session Description:

Products and experiences in our digital world are increasingly driven by machine learning. One question remains unclear, how should we assess a company’s AI/ML maturity? For executives, the proposed framework naturally serves as a guide for crafting an AI/ML strategy appropriate for the stage and size of the business as well as informing decisions about mergers and acquisitions. For scientists and managers, the framework serves as a compass for navigating what types of challenges you might be asked to solve in a company. In this talk, Dr. Hsieh will present a recommended scale from zero to five to describe this continuum from both a top-down (executive’s) perspective and a bottom-up (scientist’s) perspective.

Search engines and voice assistants tend to be the model examples of AI's widespread impact. However, With COVID-19, as more shoppers turned to online services for food and essentials delivered to their door, the world more clearly saw another application of AI: ecommerce. Online sales grew 44% in 2020 compared to 15% in 2019. At the same time, ecommerce still only accounts for 21% of US overall retail revenue, showing headroom for continued growth. From personalization, to eclectic selections, to demand forecasting, AI continues to improve all aspects of the consumer buying experience. But what are the new frontiers for ecommerce innovation? In what ways are AI and human-in-the-loop applied to accelerate the world's move to online retail?

Machine Learning frameworks have gone through various transitions over the years. The "mainstream" ML framework has changed in identity ever 5 years. In this talk, we first recap ML frameworks through the lens of a few variables and factors. We then subsequently project the future for ML frameworks as a distribution over these variables. Lastly, I sample a few ideas of how the future might look like based on some general bets.
