Season 2 Episode 6
This episode's guest, Professor Cathy Wu, is helping to build the roadways of our future. With machine-learning, she is predicting the ideal infrastructure for the world's future mobility. Currently at MIT's Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS), Wu (and previous student of Pieter Abbeel's) gives listeners an overview of the type of potential scenarios being modeled with machine-learning such as scenarios in which the road is filled with mixed-autonomy vehicles. What emergent behaviors might happen? As our mode for transportation and delivery evolve, what are the infrastructure or software solutions that can help ensure smooth travel and safe roadways? What are the policy considerations?
