Episode 016 – Ford/Argo AI, Automakers winning autonomy, more energy crisis musings


Ford will pump $1 Billion into autonomous startup Argo AI over the next 5 years. We talk about what they’ll get for their money, and explain the strategy behind the move. We also weigh in on John McElroy’s recent Autoblog editorial handing the autonomy win to established automakers. Sam caught up with Robert Davis, SVP US Operations for Mazda, and we close out by repeating the case for acting like we’re having an energy crisis.
