I’m not going to lie. I clicked the headline from BBC News because I absolutely thought it was about a self-driving GM and a self-driving Tesla crashing into each other.
I want real-life Transformers as much as the next Jason Mendoza, but I don’t know. You ever think maybe self-driving cars aren’t a great idea after all? That maybe they’re all self-crashing cars in disguise?
Also, the GM (maybe it was the Tesla) hit a fire truck. You’d think the machine learning for “avoid big red metal life-saver-mobile” would be fairly easy to master. This abject failure doesn’t mean the robot apocalypse isn’t coming. It just isn’t coming yet.
