26. Reinventing Transportation in a Positive Way - Bryan Salesky of Argo AI
SAE Tomorrow Today
Pittsburgh has become a hotbed for mobility innovation and one of the leaders is undoubtedly Argo AI.This week, host Grayson Brulte is joined by our Steel City neighbor Bryan Salesky, co-founder and CEO of Argo AI, to discuss Argo’s approach to automated vehicles, the role of autonomy in improving mobility for all, and how the education system should develop smarter thinkers and future leaders. Throughout the conversation, Bryan discusses how safety plays an essential role in establishing autonomous vehicles as a trusted technology that people will understand, adopt and support. And as such, the defining legacy of eliminating cars crashes to improve society is touched upon. Bryan talks about how Argo has built relationships and partnerships with cities based on mutual trust and respect. He details Argo’s approach to solving specific needs in cities; the company’s efforts in Washington, DC, Austin, Texas, and Miami; the importance of a playbook to operationalize consistency in every city; and how learnings must be adjusted to scale for naturalistic driving tendencies within specific cities, regions, environments.As the conversation shifts to Argo’s workforce, Bryan explains how the company prioritizes employing a diverse group of people from all walks of life and backgrounds to help Argo outmaneuver and out-pivot other companies in the industry.This transitions into a larger conversation about rethinking the American education system as Bryan offers his take on how encouraging students to take a non-linear path while providing opportunities to spark their naturally eclectic sense of curiosity can help them grow into the leaders and thinkers of tomorrow.
