Cruise: Self-Driving Engineering with Mo Elshenawy Holiday Repeat
Play • 49 min

October 1, 2019

The development of self-driving cars is one of the biggest technological changes that is under way.

Across the world, thousands of engineers are working on developing self-driving cars. Although it still seems far away, self-driving cars are starting to feel like an inevitability. This is especially true if you spend much time in downtown San Francisco, where you will see a self-driving car being tested every day. Much of the time, that self-driving car will be operated by Cruise.

Cruise is a company that is building a self-driving car service. The company has hundreds of engineers working across the stack, from computer vision algorithms to automotive hardware. Cruise’s engineering requires engineers who can work with cloud tools as well as low-latency devices. It also requires product developers and managers to lead these different teams.

The field of self-driving is very new. There is not much literature available on how to build a self-driving car. There is even less literature on how to manage a team of engineers that are building, testing, and deploying software and hardware for real cars that are driving around the streets of San Francisco.

Mo Elshenawy is VP of engineering at Cruise, and he joins the show to talk about the engineering that is required to develop fully self-driving car technology, as well as how to structure teams to align the roles of product design, software engineering, testing, machine learning, and hardware. 

Full disclosure: Cruise is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily.

An Event-Driven Apps Look Ahead for 2021
James Urquhart (@jamesurquhart, Global Field CTO @VMware, O’Reilly Author) talks about event-driven application architectures, how it's changing real-time business models, and technology stack driven the evolution.  *SHOW: *483 *SHOW SPONSOR LINKS:* * BMC Wants to Know if your business is on its A-Game * BMC Autonomous Digital Enterprise * Datadog Security Monitoring Homepage - Modern Monitoring and Analytics * Try Datadog yourself by starting a free, 14-day trial today.

We’ve known you for quite a while, going back to working together on very early Cloud stuff. You’ve always enjoyed being focused on complex, distributed systems. Tell us what you’re focused on these days.  *Topic 2 *- Let’s talk about this concept of “event-driven” and flow. Where did it come from, what does it do, why is it valuable to application designers? *  * *Topic 2a *- What is a “flow” and how is it related to event-driven? *Topic 3 *- Events are data. We’ve had relational databases for data, and then we had NoSQL or eventually-consistent databases for data. Are events a new type of data, or a new way to deal with data in a different context?  (channels, replays, etc.) *Topic 4 *- Can we talk through an example of an event-driven application, or an event-driven integration between multiple organizations? How is it new/different? What unique capabilities does it bring now?  (Kafka, IoT, API Gateways, etc.) *Topic 5 *- Cloud made IT self-service. Serverless made Ops become on-demand. If I’m a business leader, what does event-driven give us?*  * *Topic 6 *- Where are we in the maturity of event-driven architectures? What might be some of the next stages coming in 2021 or 2022?   *FEEDBACK?* * Email: show at thecloudcast dot net * Twitter: @thecloudcastnet

66. Owain Evans - Predicting the future of AI
Most researchers agree we’ll eventually reach a point where our AI systems begin to exceed human performance at virtually every economically valuable task, including the ability to generalize from what they’ve learned to take on new tasks that they haven’t seen before. These artificial general intelligences (AGIs) would in all likelihood have transformative effects on our economies, our societies and even our species. No one knows what these effects will be, or when AGI systems will be developed that can bring them about. But that doesn’t mean these things aren’t worth predicting or estimating. The more we know about the amount of time we have to develop robust solutions to important AI ethics, safety and policy problems, the more clearly we can think about what problems should be receiving our time and attention today. That’s the thesis that motivates a lot of work on AI forecasting: the attempt to predict key milestones in AI development, on the path to AGI and super-human artificial intelligence. It’s still early days for this space, but it’s received attention from an increasing number of the AI safety and AI capabilities researchers. One of those researchers is Owain Evans, whose work at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute is focused on techniques for learning about human beliefs, preferences and values from observing human behavior or interacting with humans. Owain joined me for this episode of the podcast to talk about AI forecasting, the problem of inferring human values, and the ecosystem of research organizations that support this type of research.
