Dr. Krishna Sridhar is working at Continental and is spearheading Artificial Intelligence for Autonomous Driving. He focuses on creating scalable AI solutions that would enable driverless vehicles over a wide variety of geography and traffic conditions.
His technical strategy is to create modular systems that can also learn as a whole. In this way, the system learns to master the corner cases that constitute the long tail of autonomous driving. His organizational strategy is to harness the expert knowledge developed in the driver assistance community for over a decade and make this scalable using deep learning. Towards this end, he leads cross-departmental activity that focusses on applying scalable AI for the full stack - perception, cognition and planning.
Krishna has over 15 years of experience in Machine Learning and AI, specializing in the problem of robot learning by imitation and he continues to apply his expertise for driverless cars.
