Executive at search engine giant talked about the smooth ride during video call to Beijing conference. The only problem is self-driving cars are banned in China
Tech company executives often like to call themselves disruptors, shaking things up in the hope of making a better world. But to Beijing police, the CEO of Chinese technology giant Baidu might simply be another unlicensed driver.
Robin Li placed a video call to an AI developer conference while riding in the passenger seat of a self-driving car on Wednesday. During the call, the head of the search engine company said the car was on autopilot and remarked on the smooth ride despite the traffic.
