Once seen as purely science fiction, self-driving cars are becoming more than a vision for the future; they are becoming a reality. But with this new technology comes concerns about safety.
Premiering at Red Hat Summit, the “Road to A.I.” documentary film asks some of the most crucial questions facing the transportation and technology industries as we shift to a more autonomous future. How is artificial intelligence being programmed to make decisions we can live with? Can sharing data make self-driving cars more safe?
The film features luminaries from the world of artificial intelligence including: Chris Nicholson, CEO of Skymind; Liam Paull, founder of Duckietown; Karl Iagnemma, CEO and co-founder of nuTonomy; Mary “Missy” Cummings, professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University; and Francois Chollet, A.I. researcher and author of Keras.
Part of Red Hat’s Open Source Stories film series, “Road to A.I.” is the latest installment from Red Hat to highlight and share stories about how openness is a catalyst for change. Open source is changing the world in many different ways - from technology innovation and management advancements to innovations across sectors. Red Hat has long understood the power of collaboration to produce amazing results. With Open Source Stories, we’re showing what people can do when they make things in the open. Because when we share, we thrive.
The documentary will premiere simultaneously during Red Hat Summit at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Room 210C on Tuesday, May 2, at 6:30 p.m. ET, and online at https://www.redhat.com/en/open-source-stories/road-to-ai.
