FutureTalk Summer Series with Andrew Wilson + Special Happy Hour

Please RSVP via Eventbrite for this event!

Join us for the first installment of FutureTalks: The Summer Series! For the next 3 months we’re hosting talks in both San Francisco and Portland, where we’ll be examining the code of tomorrow, celebrating the people who make it, and looking ahead to the future of Modern Software. You’ll hear from speakers like Trace Smith and Eryn O'Neil, meet and mingle with like-minded data nerds, and enjoy tasty treats from local vendors.

This month's talk comes from Andy Wilson, Chief Open Source Compliance Officer at Intel. Check out his talk below, and stay tuned for more talks coming to Portland and San Francisco this summer!

Autonomous Driving and Open Source:

As one of the largest consumer purchases and most common forms of transportation in the developed world, cars and their rapidly advancing in-vehicle automation systems pose a not-too-distant future scenario where regulation, technology, economics and individual rights will intersect in new and unforeseen ways. Come join an interactive discussion on the topic.

We’re also thrilled that Matt Jones of Jaguar Land Rover* has agreed to participate in what we hope will be a highly interactive discussion. Matt is the head of Future Infotainment at JLR and an outspoken leader in driving industry standards to accelerate things like autonomous driving.

Back when open source was far from mainstream, Andy navigated the early waters of GPL to make it tenable to his employer, an intellectual-property-rich semiconductor company. Today, Andy is the chief open source compliance officer for Intel. When he’s not reviewing the license manifests of soon-to-be-released code as part of his day job, Andy likes to ponder bigger ideas, one of which is Autonomous Driving and the role open source is playing in that future.


Doors will open at 5:30p. The special beer (from Burnside Brewing!) + whiskey networking happy hour sponsored by the Intel Open Source Technology Center will kick off at 6p, and includes free beer, and a whiskey tasting. The food and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic. The presentation will begin right at 6:30p.

    Very interesting and thought-provoking. I work w the guy and have worked on "smart car" stuff, so I feel like I've heard various things about Autonomous Driving over time, but it was an attention-keeping Technology & Society topic even for me.
