Chris also co-heads the University’s Autonomous Flight Systems Lab, where he and his students are working on the guidance, navigation, and control of unmanned systems. In our conversation, we discuss some of the technical and regulatory challenges of building and deploying Unmanned Autonomous Systems. We also talk about some interesting work he’s doing on evolutionary path planning systems as well as an Precision Agriculture use case. Finally, Chris shares some great starting places for those looking to begin a journey into autonomous systems research.
Join me at the AI Summit
Are you an IT, technology or business leader who needs to get smart on the broad spectrum of machine learning and AI opportunities in the enterprise? Or, perhaps someone in your organization could benefit from a level-up in this area? (Or, maybe you would benefit from them leveling up!) If this sounds like you, or someone you know, you’ll probably be interested in my upcoming AI Summit event.
Think of the event as a two-day, no-fluff, Technical MBA in machine learning & AI. You’ll leave with a clear understanding of:
-How machine learning and deep learning work (no math required)
-How to identify machine learning and deep learning opportunities in your organization
-How to understand and take advantage of technologies like computer vision and natural language processing
-How to manage and label data to take advantage of ML and AI
-And how to build an AI-first culture, and operationalize AI in your business.
You’ll have an informed perspective on what’s going on across the ML and AI landscape, and will be able to engage confidently in discussions about machine learning and AI with your colleagues, customers and partners. I’m super excited about this event and the speakers you’ll get a chance to learn from. For more information visit twimlai.com/aisummit, and feel free to contact me with your questions.
