Everything we do at Argo AI is about helping people. Those who know me personally know that I am passionate about the company’s purpose to make getting around cities safer for all. Yet, just because Argo’s technology will ultimately benefit society, we can’t sit on the sidelines when our country is in crisis now. Giving […]
One of the core values at Argo AI is “We > I,” which is a simple way of saying that we operate better as a team that is collaborative and respectful to each and every employee, no matter their background. Our shared mission, purpose, and values always come before individual egos or self-interest. And while […]
As the developers of a self-driving system, we think a lot about how our work can be applied to improve lives. Together with our partners, we want to do more than just plug self-driving vehicles into existing transportation models — we want to improve the safety of transportation in cities, and we want to solve […]
The ‘race’ narrative is often-used when defining the deployment approach of the autonomous vehicle industry. In truth, that depiction hurts the reality of how some of us are actually operating. Self-driving technology is not a winner-take-all sprint to the finish line — and even if it was, that’s not how Argo is approaching its development […]
When we formed Argo AI more than two years ago, our mission was clear: make transportation safer, more accessible, affordable and convenient by developing self-driving vehicles in partnership with leading automakers.
There are countless studies on the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce, and most focus on the fact that diversity is good for business. We couldn’t agree more, but at Argo it’s more than that. Our technology is being developed to improve the lives of everyone, and our team should reflect that.
We are pleased to announce that Alex Roy — Editor-at-Large of The Drive, co-host of /DRIVE on NBC Sports, record-setting endurance driver, and Founder of the Autonocast and the Human Driving Association — will join Argo AI effective January 15th, 2019. You may read his statement here.
We are seeing an explosion of connectivity in our lives, with everything from our phones and cameras to our washing machines being imbued with the power of the internet – even connected toasters are a thing now. This same movement is happening in the automotive world, where self-driving vehicles, especially, will rely heavily on connectivity […]
Every day Argo AI employees come to work, we all strive toward a higher purpose — transforming how the world moves. We don’t take this lightly, and that’s why it has always been important to me to make Argo AI the best place to work — a space where people want to be each day […]
Developing reliable self-driving cars requires pushing the envelope in computer science and artificial intelligence. While we’re applying the latest techniques in computer vision and machine learning to the work we’re doing every day, some of the most advanced research is being done at the university level. That’s why it’s critical to stay connected to the […]
We can’t talk about a future of self-driving cars without mentioning LiDAR technology — and we won’t be able to build that future without it. These sensors are crucial to creating a three-dimensional view of the world that helps autonomous vehicles find where they are on the road and detect other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
A decade ago in the California high desert, 11 finalists competed in an unprecedented 60-mile race. Robot cars needed to safely and swiftly complete the mission without any human intervention — while also interacting with human-driven vehicles — in under six hours.
Pittsburgh has been called many things — The Steel City, City of Champions, City of Bridges, The Capital of Work. A newer name, one we’ve become particularly fond of, is Roboburgh. Yet, no matter what you call it, Pittsburgh has always been an epicenter for innovation, with an incredible workforce possessing the talent, grit and determination to […]
We founded Argo AI to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence — self-driving vehicles. While technology exists today to augment the human driver and automate the driving task up to a certain level of capability, replacing the human driver remains an extremely complex challenge. Advances in artificial intelligence, machine […]
