Data analytics prof evaluates Waymo’s safety data

I commissioned Eugene Antipov, a data analytics professor at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Russia, to evaluate Waymo’s paper “Waymo Public Road Safety Performance Data”.

Specifically, I asked him to assess whether the paper provides convincing evidence that Waymo’s self-driving vehicles are safer than the average human driver.

You can read Eugene’s paper here:

It will be also published on Arxiv.org in a few days eventually. Right now it’s on ResearchGate.
