As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

There is a paradigm shift underway in the transportation industry driven by the need to prevent accidents, reduce traffic congestion and pollution. Advancement in robotics, sensors, artificial intelligence, connectivity, and computing are paving the way for autonomous vehicles to become a reality within the next few years. This paradigm shift will further impact a number of things including car ownership, infrastructure, government regulations and others to name a few. Join our panelists as they discuss a range of issues related to this topic that will radically transform the future of transportation and our lives as a result.
