I joined General Motors (GM) in July 2016 to establish a Cognitive Driving group with the objective of developing AI-based agent for GM’s future AV programs. Today, the group is established with great talents working together on this challenging objective to provide a better solution for personal mobility.
Before GM, I worked for 16 years in the semi-conductor industry, leading the algorithm department in Applied Materials, located in Israel. I was a Senior Leader in Applied Materials R&D with multi product, international and customer facing responsibilities.
I have a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from Bar-Ilan university.
