Last month’s Kaneohe Business Group’s luncheon was on Wednesday, October 24th at 11:30am in the Club Room at Pohai Nani. Our speaker was Dr. Panos Prevedouros. The KBG group was intrigued by the presentation given on the topic of the future benefits and pitfalls of autonomous vehicles. He discussed the real world scenarios of artificial intelligence controlling the world’s transportation systems. Thank you to Dr. Prevedouros for a great speech and informative discussion.
