Your Self-Driving Car – How Did It Get So Smart?

Presented by

Michael Ger, Hortonworks; Seunghan Han & Andreas Pawlik, NorCom

About this talk

The march towards autonomous vehicles continues to accelerate. While expert opinion differs on the specific timing and use cases that will emerge first, few deny that self-driving cars are in our future. As we all can appreciate, “teaching” a vehicle to drive under the full range of conditions it will encounter (i.e. road conditions, weather conditions, behavior of other vehicles) is a daunting proposition. If merely the thought of this makes you nervous, you’re not alone – according to the American Automobile Association (AAA), 75 percent of consumers are not yet ready to embrace self-driving cars. However, that is the very challenge facing automakers – teaching vehicles to unfailingly assess and respond to any combination of operational conditions “on-the-fly” through discrete rules (algorithms) governing a vehicle’s behavior. Join Hortonworks and NorCom at the upcoming webinar as we discuss: •Evolution of the autonomous driving •Traditional data management approaches and main challenges associated with them •How NorCom and Hortonworks can address those challenges and accelerate the pace of autonomous development
