ITU Workshop on "Autonomous Driving safety data and metrics - what do we really need?" - Perspectives from Asian-Pacific stakeholders to foster a global harmonization

To kick off the 4th meeting of the ITU-T Focus Group on AI for autonomous and assisted driving (FG-AI4AD),  the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) organizes a workshop tailored for the Asia-Pacific stakeholders, which explores what data and metrics are really needed to ensure safety in future autonomous driven vehicles. The workshop will take place electronically on 2 December 2020 (0900-1300 CET) and will be followed on 3 December by the FG-AI4AD official meeting. The session will be an occasion to present and discuss the results of a new ethical thought experiment, called The Molly Problem, for which an international  survey has been launched, which is being used to shape the requirements for the data and metrics under consideration within FG-AI4AD. 

The workshop provides an opportunity to learn what data is considered essential by the Asian-Pacific community in order to deploy future autonomous and assisted driving. OEMs, researchers, academics as well as private sector and governments will be engaged in discussion aiming to brainstorm on a set of minimum requirements for data and metrics. The ITU focus group, scheduled to start officially the next day, will benefit  from the studies and opinion expressed during the workshop.

Target Audience
A multi-stakeholder approach is considered instrumental in embarking on the journey for autonomous driving. The focus group and its workshops are freely open to ITU Member States, Sector Members, Associates and Academic Institutions and to any individual from an ITU member country. This included  individuals who are members of international, regional and national organizations.

Registration is mandatory to access the workshop via our remote tool.  A free ITU account​ is required to access the platform.
