Master Mind Master Class with Brad Templeton : The future of self-driving cars Templeton, Brad


Robo-cars are coming. Whether the idea of autonomous vehicles excites or terrifies you, these technologies appear to be the future of transportation and their societal implications will be broad. While there will undoubtedly be many benefits to this ‘robo-car’ driven world, this possibility raises many important social, legal and ethical questions that may serve as barriers to wide adoption of these technologies. Join Brad Templeton, futurist, ‘robo-car’ commentator and former advisor to Google’s self-driving car program as he talks about the future of autonomous transportation. He will explore what it will mean for the future of cities, healthy living and sustainability; while also delving into the important dilemmas that arise when we consider giving up control.
