Mizzou Engineer improving algorithms that power self-driving vehicles

Artificial intelligence (AI) makes all sorts of decisions for us. Netflix recommends our next movie. Amazon suggests products based on what’s in our shopping cart. Facebook determines the content that shows up in our feeds. While we have a basic idea of how these algorithms work, most of us don’t need machines to further explain why they are making those conclusions.
