Boeing is a good example of what happens when software with no override function goes wrong. People die. If that sort of thing happened in a self drive car there would be no time to do anything about it. A plane might be 10,000 metres high, which would allow time to correct, whereas a car might have two seconds. It is incredibly naive of the nerds to think their coding is always going to be perfect in every possible situation for the life of the vehicle. It’s going to take a hell of a lot longer than the dreamers think and people will die in the process. I can’t imagine anything more boring than sitting in an autonomous car.
