Sebastian Thrun, Self-Driving Cars, Live Stream

The title says it all. Tonight, at 7pm California time, Sebastian Thrun will be talking Self-Driving Cars, and you can watch it happen live.

Sebastian will be joined by Danny Shapiro, Head of Autonomous Vehicles, NVIDIA, and they’ll be digging deep into the very latest and greatest in the field. And you’re invited to watch it happen live.

The occasion is a Silicon Valley Artificial Intelligence ( event happening at our Udacity offices in Mountain View. 150 in-person tickets were made available. 150 tickets have been sold. But YOU can watch it happen live.

From Stanford’s DARPA-winning “Stanley,” to Google’s Self Driving Car, to NVIDIA’s latest advancements in autonomous driving research, the topics will be rich, and the insights plentiful. This experience will constitute a deep technical dive into how Self-Driving Cars work, and how you can get into the field today.

And you can watch it happen live.
