Why is the problem of self-driving autonomous control so hard? Despite the enthusiastic involvement of big technological companies and investment of billions of dollars, optimistic predictions about the realization of autonomous vehicles have yet to materialize.

Hear 2007 Turing Award winner Joseph Sifakis explain the challenges raised by the vision for trustworthy autonomous systems for the autonomous vehicle case and outline his hybrid design approach combining model-based and data-based techniques and seeking trade offs between performance and trustworthiness.
