Autonomous vehicles will have a profound impact on the world in the coming years. They will almost certainly have life-changing effects for all of us, like it or not. So what's it like to work on the design of such a profoundly influential technology? What are the considerations, practices, and ideas that underlie the work?
In this session of Designers + Geeks, we'll look at the work of creative professionals in the autonomous vehicle industry. This event is not likely to be recorded, so join us in person for a great set of talks!
