    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Come learn more about our Lyft Core and Level 5 self-driving teams!
    Swag will be provided!

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.

    Biography: For the tech talk, we welcome the following speakers:

    Anjie Liang, Software Engineer
    Anjie is a software engineer on Data Infrastructure for Level 5, a team responsible for indexing and serving all the data that is collected on the autonomous vehicles. Before Lyft, she was completing her undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin. Considering the large amounts of data that is collected on the cars every day, and the many distributed systems needed to process that data, Anjie's first year of working full time has been full of learning opportunities and interesting challenges.

    Robert Pinkerton, Hardware Engineer
    Rob is a systems engineer at Lyft Level 5, a team responsible for the architecture and requirements definition of our self-driving cars. Before Lyft, he was a systems engineer at SpaceX where he worked on various aspects of the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy Launch vehicles, including launching a car into space. Rob has performed graduate study in Systems Engineering and Electrical Engineering at Cornell and Stanford University respectively. He is extremely passionate about turning complex systems into products that improve our lives in a meaningful and sustainable way.

    Alice Chuang, Software Engineer
    Alice is a Software Engineer on Mapping Algo for Level 5, a team that uses Computer Vision and Machine Learning to leverage the data to build maps for autonomous vehicles. Alice graduated from Columbia in the City of New York and after interning last summer, she returned as a full time engineer at Level 5! So far, Alice's experiences at Lyft have been very insightful and exciting.
