The area seems like hot. Is is a good idea to join a startup to work on this? Even if the startup doesn’t work, will the experience help to get another high pay job in that area?
Currently I’m a general distribute backend engineer. No ML background.

    Cruise automation? Really depends on where.

      OP
      If it’s cruise will it be a good idea? Why? They are more likely to succeed?

      Hard to say about success, but they seem to be doing well wrt city driving. Also they have funding from GM including cars for testing, which is an important cost. They're also growing fast which is a good sign.
