Why We Created Argo AI

We founded Argo AI to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence — self-driving vehicles.

While technology exists today to augment the human driver and automate the driving task up to a certain level of capability, replacing the human driver remains an extremely complex challenge.

These technologies will eventually lead us to a new generation of the automobile — a vehicle that is connected, intelligent, and able to safely operate itself alone or as part of a shared fleet.

Allowing a vehicle to do the actual driving could enable the peace of mind that comes from having a chauffeur, meaning people wouldn’t have to concentrate on driving when they don’t want to do so or have the capability to handle the task.

They can provide convenient, reliable, affordable transportation shared among multiple users to reduce congestion and parking lot usage, enabling communities to replace parking lots with more economic and socially beneficial spaces.

Argo AI will develop and deploy the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision to help build safe and efficient self-driving vehicles that enable these transformations and more.

Our agility combined with Ford’s scale uniquely unites the benefits of a technology startup with the experience and discipline of an automaker’s industry-leading autonomous vehicle development program.
