Autonomous vehicles will have a profound impact on the world in the coming years. They will almost certainly have life-changing effects for all of us, like it or not. So what's it like to work on the design of such a profoundly influential technology? What are the considerations, practices, & ideas that underlie the work?
In this session of Designers + Geeks, we'll look at the work of creative professionals in the autonomous vehicle industry. This event is not likely to be recorded, so join us in person for a great set of talks!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Yes, this event is 21+, & attendees will need to present a valid ID to join us. It's the beer!
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to & from the event?
Yelp's beautiful office is near the corner of New Montgomery & Mission St, right in the heart of San Francisco. It's easy to get to from BART, many buses, or your ride sharing app of choice. If you need to drive, paid parking is available nearby.
Can I arrive after 8pm?
No!! For building security staffing reasons, we can not let you in after 8pm. We're not joking - if it's 8:00.0001pm, you will be turned away. This really sucks, & we don't want it to happen - please arrive before 8pm.
Can I smoke / vape / etc. at this event?
No. Smoking / vaping is not permitted at the building.
