9 Startups with Self-Driven Future (Maybe)

Until 10 days ago when Ford announced a $1 billion investment in Argo AI (Pittsburgh), it was just another anonymous tech startup. And it was really new. Argo AI was founded only last November by two AI robotic experts (Bryan Salesky originally from Google, and Peter Rander from Uber). The company cleverly avoided notice entirely, until Ford came calling.
That got us thinking. How many tech startups are out there – waiting to be snatched up, or hoping to become the next Waymo (formerly the Google self-driving car project)?
And more importantly, who are they?
