Today: (1) We discuss the AV consortium being assembled amongst the German automakers to help share development costs (but really to cover their asses); (2) I did MIT’s trolly paradox experiment and share my results with you; (3) Apple just slashed 200 jobs from their Project Titan autonomous car project, and I think I just figured out what they’re up to.
We’ll discuss why the trolly paradox isn’t a real issue after all, or at least, why it shouldn’t be; Tesla’s Autopilot V9.0 with Navigate on Autopilot is a game changer; and we look at countries’ preparedness for an autonomous future round the world.
Today, Episode 61! Today, Episode 61! We talk again about the trolly paradox, and the need to program autonomous to mirror various cultures’ social norms, conventions, and expectations; GM’s Cruise Automation has a small problem in that it’s not so good at detecting pedestrians (oops); and, we discuss VW’s strategy towards besting Tesla at it’s own game… by 2020.
The one where we discuss Tesla’s limited product line; self driving trucking company Starsky Robotics’ Series A; and the solution to the infamous “trolly paradox.”
