It’s the stuff of science fiction and futuristic film: Self-driving vehicles are taking to the roadways in droves.
With the proliferation of vehicular automation, the role of computer scientists like Brent Venable, associate professor of computer science at Tulane University, is expanding.
It’s an industrywide problem: Fewer women than men practice computer science.
Fast Company reported in March 2016 on a new study by the financial software and data firm Smart Asset that U.S. women make up only 26.5 percent of the tech workforce. And women earn, on average, just 85 percent of what... more
