Rebecca Blumenstein, deputy managing editor for The New York Times, explores the intense rivalry for dominance in self-driving vehicles at this special TimesTalks in Detroit. As autonomous technology transforms the auto industry, who will prevail: Detroit’s carmakers, with their legacy of manufacturing and design expertise, or cash-rich Silicon Valley giants with their cutting-edge technology? Joining Blumenstein to assess the multi-billion-dollar stakes are Kevin Johnson, president and C.E.O. of Detroit Economic Growth Corporation; Raj Kapoor, chief strategy officer at Lyft; Sherif Marakby, president and C.E.O. of Ford Autonomous Vehicles, and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.

This event is presented by Deloitte.
