The scope of the research includes machine learning, artificial intelligence and highly autonomous vehicle systems. Stanford professor Mykel Kochenderfer will serve as the principal investigator during the three-year project.

"We are proactively embracing and participating in the evolving landscape around personal transportation through our work with world-class institutions at the forefront of this automotive revolution," said Howard Hayes, Allstate's senior vice president of product innovation. "We aim to learn about, and contribute to the algorithm research, software platforms and the datasets, tools and standards related to connected and autonomous vehicles."
