New rules for â€œself-driving carsâ€� in California highlight a glaring misconception about how A.I. works.
An educated public understands that autonomous vehicles are amazing but that they are so far unable to fully take control of a passenger vehicle with no human behind the wheel.
Itâ€™s only a matter of time before todayâ€™s â€œsafety driversâ€� â€” the humans who sit idle behind the wheel in case the artificial intelligence fails â€” get out of the car and leave the driving to the machines, right?
Whoa, slow your roll there, self-driving car narrative.
California just approved licenses for self-driving cars to in fact have no human driver behind the wheel, or no human in the vehicle at all (after dropping off a passenger, or for deliveries) with one caveat: The self-driving car companies must monitor and be able to take over driving remotely.
