Tuesday, December 10 at 7:30 PM at the Michigan. Part of Science on Screen.
Celebrated journalist and author Malcolm Gladwell leads the first comprehensive documentary look at self-driving cars in Autonomy. The film is a cinematic exploration of the world of automated vehicles — from their technical history to the personal narratives of those affected by them to the many unanswered questions about how this technology will affect modern society. Autonomy features interviews with industry pioneers and scenes with cutting-edge “AVs” in action around the world. Inspired by a special issue of Car and Driver, Autonomy reinforces the context of where the “car” meets the coming revolution in mobility, presenting an essential primer on the subject and how it will affect you.
Documentary. 82 min. NR.
With special guest, Benjamin Kuipers, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, for a post-film discussion.
