Event description
Join us for a drive into the future. We’re looking forward to seeing you again!

About this event

It’s time to restart the ignition and get your networking wheels rolling again, because the University of Auckland is back with another exciting event for our UK-based alumni and friends – this one including a thought-provoking talk from alumnus Alex Kendall, co-founder and CEO of autonomous vehicle start-up Wayve.

Autonomous driving technology: the space race of our generation

Join us to hear how autonomous vehicles are set to redefine the way we move people and goods around our cities. In this talk, Alex will discuss the progress already being made in developing the artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicles and share his vision of how this technology will soon meet the needs of our busy and complex urban lives while also improving safety, sustainability and accessibility in our cities.

This will be an excellent opportunity to hear from a global technology leader, as well as the chance to catch up with University representatives from Auckland and fellow alumni and friends living in the UK.
