Join us for a conversation with Tim Kentley-Klay and Jesse Levinson, co-founders of Zoox, a robotics company developing fully autonomous vehicles and the supporting ecosystem required to bring the technology to market. Prior to Zoox, where he serves as CEO, Kentley-Klay founded three successful international design and technology driven companies: XYZ Studios, Crayon and Wheelbarrow. He is an accomplished businessman, entrepreneur, designer, animator and filmmaker.

Levinson, CTO of Zoox, graduated from Princeton University and completed a computer science Ph.D. and postdoc at Stanford. There, he developed algorithms for Stanford’s winning entry in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge, and went on to lead the self-driving car team’s research efforts. Levinson also co-created a popular mobile photography app, Pro HDR, that has been purchased by more than a million people.
