Meet the Leader of Intel’s Silicon Valley Autonomous Vehicle Lab

In the past several months, I’ve shared my passion about autonomous driving and the reasons why I think Intel will succeed in this industry. I am fortunate to have a team of dedicated professionals who are equally enthusiastic about this opportunity; all organizational leaders should be so lucky. Patti Robb is a visionary technologist and the chief strategist behind our Silicon Valley Autonomous Vehicle Lab working with tier-one suppliers, carmakers, universities and startups to accelerate delivery of autonomous driving solutions. Following our recent Silicon Valley Autonomous Driving Workshop, I asked Patti to describe some of the ways she sees Intel bringing autonomous driving to life in the Valley and also to discuss her personal passion for her work. The following is an edited transcript of that conversation.
