In this talk, former General Motors executive and current advisor to the Google Self-Driving Car project, Lawrence Burns will show how Google, Tesla, Apple and Uber have positioned themselves to revolutionize the way we move around by developing driverless vehicles while traditional auto companies like General Motors, Ford, and Daimler have been fighting back by partnering by with new tech start-ups.

With the first driverless car likely to hit markets in less than five years, Lawrence Burns will explain how this new technology will impact our lives – from driving, parking, and refueling our cars, to eliminating 90 percent of road fatalities, drastically reducing our carbon footprint, and the profound effect it will have on the job market, the environment and urban planning.

Join us to understand when, how, and who will win the race. And how the self-driving car will reshape our world.
