How to Use A.I. and Machine Learning to Improve Road Safety
Rashid Galadanci
Rashid Galadanci
Driver Technologies, CEO and Co-founder

Rashid can discuss how drivers can use A.I. and cloud technology to fill the safety gap on the road when traveling and commuting. The Driver app has tens of millions of miles of anonymized in-house data to improve users driving habits, and the Driver app’s live alerts system could help prevent thousands of on-road collisions before they happen. Rashid can discuss how most accidents caused on roads are due to human error and how adopting A.I. and machine learning through video telematics in mobility assistance devices could avoid tens of millions of serious injuries a year. Plus, he can discuss how future uses could include additional safety features, such as tailgate monitoring, driver distraction, and drowsiness monitoring. The Driver app’s low cost solves a global need for safety, not just an American need. Rashid and the Driver Technologies team are looking forward to engaging with the rest of the world, where more than 90% of road fatalities occur.

But when I was given a limited budget and only 4 months to demonstrate the initial proof of concept, I got creative." Join Elizabeth as she retells the early days of Webex Hologram and outlines the 5 key strategies she employed to build an amazing team and empower them to create an innovative new product.
