My Top AI Highlight:

Zoox Self-driving Cars are Coming to Seattle

Zoox is starting to test its level 3 autonomous vehicles in Seattle. Public street testing already occurs in San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Foster City.

Seattle provides new challenges for self-driving hardware and A.I. systems such as rainy weather, and new road layouts. Seattle is also home to Amazon, who acquired Zoox in 2020.
