Google spinoff to test truly driverless cars in California

There are 11 comments on the 680News story from Tuesday Oct 30, titled Google spinoff to test truly driverless cars in California. In it, 680News reports that:

The robotic car company created by Google is poised to attempt a major technological leap in California, where its vehicles will hit the roads without a human on hand to take control in emergencies. The regulatory approval announced Tuesday allows Waymo's driverless cars to cruise through California at speeds up to 65 miles per hour.

Here we go again...

"It will save so many lives!"
"What a time to be alive!"
"We'll be able to work while in our cars!"

Blah, blah, blah...

I guess we're one step closer to having our keys away. Someone somewhere who is sitting at a big fancy cherry desk in their leather high back chair is salivating at all of it.

What a disgusting situation this is.

I hope this project lays off a whole bunch of people. Especially the idiots who thought it could never happen to them.

Wasn't it in AZ where the "driverless" car killed a lady? Everyone should read up on MIT's "Moral Machine". Will the car run over the group or the individual?

Yep, but it's happened in other places, too. Of course, the marketing machine working for these players do everything they can to prevent the public from learning about those events because heaven forbid the public be suspicious of this technology and everything it's going to take away from people.

It's a bad moon rising.

I read an article the other day "The Moral Machine". People don't realize HOW these cars programed. You are correct, it is a bad moon rising.

It was one of "those" news items, where the car cam was played, over and over and over.... on the news. A couple of things were revealed. The woman crossing the street was no where near a cross walk, there was no street light next to where she crossed, and this woman was wearing a lot of black.

Now according to the "investigation", this car has sensors on the front that DID detect this woman J-walking in black clothing in a 45 MPH zone. There was supposed to be an early warning beep or something. It didn't happen because "SOMEONE" turned off the annoying beep to make the "drive" less "jerky". Apparently there are tumbleweeds that randomly blow across the road, this was making the alert go off and the car slow. So much for AI and safety. IF one can turn this type of thing on and off, then what's stopping someone from hacking one or many autonomous cars and turning off sensors causing "accidents". Who do YOU hold responsible? How would you find them after the fact? What happens to YOUR insurance when such things happen? Is this the beginning of a Nation of no fault insurance? Autonomous cars, the ACA of driving in the U.S.A..

I'm with you, the questions keep coming with no answers. I believe the responsibility will end up becoming the manufacture. That's many law suits down the road. The Moral Machine article I read really is something people should read. It's scary. AI will be programed by "social standings" in the region. If we treasure the young, AI, will choose to spare the young, over someone older, in the event of a "pending" accident. That's scary.

Reminds me of the movie, with Charleton Hesston, when someone realizes the "different" types of "food" in an overcrowded society are recycled "dead". "Soilent Green are people!"
