To deliver the benefits of autonomous driving safely, quickly, and broadly, learnability has to be a key element of the solution. In this talk, I will describe Aurora's philosophy towards building learnability into the self-driving architecture, avoiding the pitfalls of applying vanilla ML to problems involving feedback, and leveraging expert demonstrations for learning decision-making models. I will conclude with our approach to testing and validation.
