Now at Udacity, Google X founder talks self-driving cars and jobs - Carolyn Said, SF Chronicle

Sebastian Thrun wears many hats. He’s an expert in robotics and artificial intelligence, a scientist, educator, inventor and entrepreneur. He’s best known for founding Google X, a lab for world-changing, “moonshot” projects, and helping to pioneer self-driving cars at Google and Stanford, where he is a research professor. Now he’s focusing on workforce training through his 5-year-old Mountain View startup Udacity, which offers online courses to quickly prepare students for tech jobs. Udacity’s 12 “nanodegree” programs, which include certificates in self-driving engineering and artificial intelligence, cost a few hundred dollars, take a few months and are tailored to needs outlined by employers.
