It is imperative that we remain in charge no matter what.   That's the lessons to be learnt....

Re: One "Humble "Suggestion....
Knowing Google, You'll never know.

But the idea of it is here--whether we like it or not.

..and the challenges it represents is quite a spectacle to be witness to.

@mhhf1ve I remember reading about those faked driverles cars. So would you take a free Lyft ride to serve as a guinea pig for driverless cars?

Re: One "Humble "Suggestion....
I have to agree with Elon Musk.. that AI should be regulated before it's "too late" -- and the disruption surprises us. It's one thing for the industrial revolution to create pollution that we can (kind of) clean up over many decades, but the side effects of AI might be much worse for us (esp if we have no way to "clean it up").

Re: One "Humble "Suggestion....
A *FREE* Lyft ride in an autonomous car?!? We are truly living in the future, even though the cars aren't flying yet. 

I wonder if Google will try an April Fool's day prank like this:

(where a human driver is actually disguised as an empty seat...)

Re: One "Humble "Suggestion....
THanks for the guidance--I am aware of it--and Lyft, as I am sure you're aware, has a few key backers including GM.   But, our enthuisiasm should be temepred by what Elon Musk noted as to underscore the fact that AI may lead to War--something I have noted in my comments...what I'd like to call the "Battlestar Gallatica" syndrom--Facebook's shutting down the Machine Langugages a few weeks back is an indication.....

@mpouraryan not to be outodne, in the US, Reuters reports,  Lyft is set to offer self-driving rides --for FREE:

Lyft said on Thursday that self-driving cars will soon be dispatched to certain passengers who request a ride through the app in the area. The cars will come from Drive.ai, a Mountain View, California, startup that builds software to turn cars into autonomous vehicles.

It is the latest in a string of partnerships between Lyft and an autonomous car company, but it is the one with the most immediate impact to Lyft passengers. There will be initially a small number of cars available, said Drive.ai Co-founder and President Carol Reiley, each with a trained driver in the front seat in case something goes wrong.

 

"We want to make sure the experience feels as much like an autonomous vehicle experience as possible," Reiley said.

Passengers must choose to opt into the program and the rides are free

Re: One "Humble "Suggestion....
Your very fears are about to be realized as the UK, for instance, has approved Self Driving Trucks:

http://www.wired.co.uk/article/uk-trial-self-driving-trucks-platoons-roads

Whether we like it or not, it is here--the question is where do we go from here in this quest for Automation--especially on this labor day w-end?

Onward to September as I wish all a fab and restful labor day w-end for all in the US.

Re: AT&T's Gilbert: The Goal of AI is Automation
@faryl So funny. When someone told me there were buffalo, I pictured them roaming around too! But they were so cool to see on that farm there. Really buffalo remind me of what America used to be a long, long time ago.
