Thanks Andy for a good pros-and-cons analysis. Personally I think it’s hilarious that anyone attempts to defend the status quo in which the average driver is atrociously incompetent and simply freezes when presented with life-or-death situations. Even the most rudimentary AI does better than nearly all human drivers in terms of (a) avoiding accidents entirely, and (b) responding adequately when an accident becomes unavoidable.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
