Tremendous progresses have been made in applying machine learning to autonomous driving. However, there are fundamental challenges ahead. In this talk, I will present recent advances in applying machine learning to solving the perception, prediction, planning and control problems of autonomous driving. I will discuss key research challenges in learning more robust and abstract representations, scene understanding, behavior prediction, and decision-making in complex real-world scenarios.
