Control Theory. Feedback loops. PID Controllers. As someone who was formally trained as a mechanical and aerospace engineer and cut his teeth on flight control systems and air combat AI those words are music to my ears. Autonomous vehicles are feedback loops wrapped inside control systems surrounded by a two sided marketplace. But what does that have to do with the theory and practice developing and deploying code? Check out this talk (and transcript) PID Loops and the Art of Keeping Systems Stable.
