“I honestly believe we are still scratching the surface of applying the technologies of deep learning and neural networks,” said Sachin Lulla, IBM’s Automotive Leader. “As computing increases, we will see this scale to true potential. The big issue is to perfect autonomous driving with human driving. Autonomous vehicles driving with other A.V.s seems far along, but when there is someone on a bike it gets tricky.”
