SoftBank
SoftBank Group Corp Chief Executive Masayoshi Son said that he expects mass production of self-driving vehicles to start in two years on Friday.

It has also funded the autonomous driving business of China’s Didi Chuxing. Automakers and tech companies, including Alphabet Inc’s Waymo and Tesla Inc, have been investing heavily in the autonomous driving industry. Son, who made his name for investing early in startups such as China’s Alibaba Group, had said he would continue to take stakes in public companies he thinks are frontrunners in the artificial intelligence (AI) race.
