George Hotz is a 26-year-old hacker and the audacious entrepreneur behind automotive start-up 'Comma.'

Some of the world's most powerful companies are now in the stages of developing their own self-driving vehicles, but Hotz is confident that he can beat major players in this market like Google and Tesla. Hotz says: "Google is going to ship by the end of 2020? We’re actually making this stuff work" and boasts that he can string together an algorithm for an autonomous AI car quicker than any carmaker currently out there.

Comma has already received a $20 million investment and Hotz continues to generate interest in his new venture. Recently, the young entrepreneur spoke at SXSW to say: "I Built a Better Self Driving Car Than Tesla."
