AI+Transportation = Mobility for all

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a powerful field that is poised to reshape transportation, i.e., how we move humans and good to their destinations with autonomous vehicles or robots. But Transportation is also a powerful field that can suggest a new AI. In this talk, I will show how both fields can help each other to make mobility a safe commodity for all.
