Opening General Session Autonomy: The Quest for the Driverless Car and How it Will Reshape Our Lives Larry Burns, PhD, Former General Motors VP of R&D and Mobility, Consultant for Google/Waymo For more than a century, car companies have taken for granted that vehicles will be driven by people, powered by combustion engines, and owned primarily by individuals. These presumptions now are being challenged by a stunning convergence of new technology and innovative business models. Autonomous, electric vehicles supplying transportation services are poised to usher in the “age of automobility,” which promises more people greater freedom in how they move around and how they live their lives. Join Larry Burns, author of “Autonomy: The Quest to Build the Driverless Car—and How it will Reshape Our World,” who’s considered one of the world’s foremost experts on driverless technology and how it will affect the world as we know it, for this eye-opening address.
