“America is the most grandiose experiment the world has seen, but, I am afraid, it is not going to be a success.” - Sigmund Freud.
Although Tesla says motorists should remain "engaged and aware" while using autopilot, critics have suggested that it was "inevitable" that users would become distracted.
Nevertheless, other car makers are pursuing a similar strategy.
"Peace Officers" Trained by the military, many with the mental baggage that comes with fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan, in a world where violence and greed are ever present, where movies, games and television practically celebrate violence. Where the US "tackles" problems by declaring (endless) war. War on Terror, War on Drugs, War on Whatever. War War War. Where a frightened, out of control nation wages a war of revenge and called it "Operation Iraqi Freedom".
According to a 2013 Pew Research Center study all black men were six times as likely as all white men to be incarcerated in federal, state and local jails.
“I call on Congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed officers in every single school in this nation.” - NRA Spokesman

Based on his recent year over year increase in "wealth" it works out that every day Bill Gates earns more than $ 41 million, so each hour the value of his wealth is increased approximately $ 1,700,000. While per minute that's $ 28,333.33 and per second $ 472.2 dollars.

By the year 2020, everyone in China will be enrolled in a vast national database that compiles fiscal and government information, including minor traffic violations, and distils it into one, single number ranking each and every citizen.

Listening and staying connected to you is my most important job. My Facebook page is a great way for you and I to stay in touch – it’s a shared space where we can discuss ways to find common ground and move our country forward. - George Orwell
It's an over hyped disaster, when are the promoters of this cyber paradise going to launch themselves to Mars. I'm all for autonomous martian rovers, Musk can take a nap in the back seat 24/7, just not on Earth.
Right. A new law that says: You must pay attention. Better not to have "autonomous" capability at all. No Big Brother at the wheel. Forget all the hype and hi tech excitement, the reality is that it's a Bad, and Dangerous Idea. Break the upgrade cycle.
The simple, final question the robots will ask is: Why do we need humans? The system is MORE EFFICIENT without them. Get it?
A lengthy planning document from China's elite State Council explains that social credit will "forge a public opinion environment that trust-keeping is glorious", the "new system will reward those who report acts of breach of trust".
Details on the inner workings of the system are not clear, though it is known that each citizen and Chinese organisation will be rated. Certain professions will face particular scrutiny. The special list even includes veterinarians and tour guides.
A national database will merge a wide variety of information on EVERY CITIZEN, assessing whether taxes and traffic tickets have been paid, whether academic degrees have been rightly earned and even, it seems, whether females have been instructed to take birth control.
Fit right in with completely computer controlled transportation. People with higher ranking will get the best parking spots……. etc etc etc
Paging Mr Orwell. Please report to the citizen's registration center.
The court will have to decide who or what "is responsible" in this case. I strongly suspect that the driver didn't see the truck because he was BORED. The "autopilot" was "in control" so, after a while, a person could easily be lose interest, become distracted, daydream, WHATEVER. The last thing I want is to be on the highway with a bunch of vehicles all in "autopilot" mode, or worse, totally driverless. But that's just me, I like driving, and I pay attention.
Note: the Model S’ top speed is software-limited at 155 mph.
Tesla did not name the customer who died, only saying that he was a “friend to Tesla and the broader EV communicty, a person who spent his life focused on innovation and the promise of technology……”
But, it's OK, he believed in The Mission. He hit a truck, could have been some kids in the street. How's the stock doing, THATS WHAT COUNTS HERE, RIGHT??????????????????????????????????????????
