At Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, computer scientist Sebastian Thrun and his team of software engineers are creating a fleet of self-driving cars. His innovative approach to artificial intelligence is what makes these cars such a success. .

In this lesson students will discuss and investigate the use of artificial intelligence, range/radar detection, public health, reduce risks, commuter time, and computers.

Compare and contrast findings presented in a text to those from other sources (including their own experiments), noting when the findings support or contradict previous explanations or accounts.
Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.
Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.
