NVIDIA Auditorium, Huang Engineering Center Map

Sponsored by:
Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Business Association of Stanford Entrepreneurial Students

Join us for a conversation with Stanford Professor Chris Gerdes, Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) and Director of the Revs Program at Stanford. His laboratory studies how cars move, how humans drive cars and how to design future cars that work cooperatively with the driver or drive themselves.

As one of the world's top experts on autonomous vehicles, Gerdes served as the first Chief Innovation Officer at the United States Department of Transportation. In this role, he worked with Secretary Anthony Foxx to foster the culture of innovation across the department and find ways to support transportation innovation taking place both inside and outside of government. He was part of the team that developed the Federal Automated Vehicles Policy and continues to serve U.S. DOT as Vice Chair of the Federal Advisory Committee on Automation in Transportation.

The DFJ Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Seminar series is generously supported by the venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
