Sean HarrisSenior Engineering Manager - AI at Cruise
Sean is a senior manager of Prediction at Cruise, where he oversees the teams building machine learning solutions for predicting future actions within every scenario Cruise’s autonomous vehicles experience on the road. Prediction is a critical component of the AV stack to which Sean brings more than eight years of experience in applying machine learning to robotics problems.
Prior to joining Cruise, Sean completed his PhD in Reinforcement Learning at UNSW Sydney where he developed novel methods for using hierarchy to scale RL solutions to simulated robotics problems. He also led the university's autonomous robot soccer team, rUNSWift, to back-to-back world championships in the Robocup SPL competition in 2014 and 2015. This was not only a great technical achievement, but also a wonderful experience growing a high performing team in a competitive environment.
