Tom Wilson, Vice President of Automotive at Graphcore, presents the "DNN Challenges and Approaches for L4/L5 Autonomous Vehicles" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

The industry has made great strides in development of L4/L5 autonomous vehicles, but what’s available today falls far short of expectations set as recently as two to three years ago. To some extent, the industry is in a “we don’t know what we don’t know” state regarding the sensors and AI processing required for a reliable and practical L4/L5 solution.

Research on new types of DNNs for perception is advancing rapidly, and solutions for planning are in their infancy. In this talk, Wilson reviews important areas of uncertainty and surveys some of the DNN approaches under consideration for perception and planning. He also explores the compute challenges associated with these DNNs.
