Girish Venkataramani, Senior Director, ML Accelerators at Cruise, gave this presentation at the Computer Vision Summit.

Hello, everyone. I'm really glad I made it here. I think that a really good topic to talk about today is transportation. But before we get to that, let's all acknowledge where we are in this AI revolution. 

Whether you like it or not, AI is upon us. I remember about 10 or 11 years back when we had the first deep learning models. Everything changed from there. We sold vision with ResNet, and so on, and then we went on to solve speech with transformers and BERT. We didn't really solve it, I'm just joking. 

The point is that AI is constantly evolving. The pace of innovation in AI is tremendous, from the first deep learning model that solved image classification problems to today, where we have ChatGPT and generative models taking us to another dimension.
