Driving the Future: New Tech, New Opportunities in Automotive
In this session moderated by San Francisco Chronicle business editor Owen Thomas, experts discuss the potential profits and perils for investors in the massive shift to electric and self-driving technologies. How are legacy car companies positioned to benefit? Will Tesla and other new entrants carve out a significant share of the market? Should Alphabet, Apple and other technology companies be considered as ways to play this shift? Panelists include UC Berkeleys Susan Shaheen; Cruise investor Jim Scheinman; and Elliot Katz of McGuireWoods, an expert on self-driving law.
