Sebastian Thrun on #GoogleGlass & #GoogleCar

There’s a very interesting interview from The Charlie Rose Show with Sebastian Thrun. He’s the former director of SAIL (Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory), and was part of the team which won the DARPA Grand Challenge in 2005 (a race involving driverless vehicles). Thrun now works for Google as the head of the Google X labs, and is responsible for the driverless Google cars and the Glass Project, which I blogged about recently.
   In this 20 minute interview he talks about the new Google glasses, which he’s wearing, the motivation behind driverless cars, the future of education, and other projects he’s currently working on.
