This self-driving startup wants to change the way robot cars make decisions and communicate

From consumers to the experts, there’s still a lot of uncertainty about self-driving cars. Is the public ready for two-ton automobiles driven by software? Is Lidar — an expensive and often unwieldily technology used to calculate distances using lasers — even necessary? (Elon Musk says no.) And how will self-driving cars communicate with other cars and pedestrians? This new self-driving startup — like many others before it — purports to have the answers. Drive.ai, co-founded by Carol Reiley and Sameep Tandon, came out of stealth just last week with one basic premise: The answer to all these questions lies within deep learning. What’s the difference between deep learning and other machine learning systems? At the risk of oversimplifying it, deep learning is a machine learning system that is mirrored closely…
