Tesla autopilot predicts a crash before it happens



Pretty cool that the car was able to notice the danger sooner that the people driving it.

Autopilot will be here before you know it.

1. My 2015 Ford Fusion would alert me of a possible collision and apply the brakes in that case. It

has adaptive cruise and collision alert, it costs almost a thousand extra but I love the option.

3. And what will truck drivers do for a living then?

We will soon hit that singularity when the machines can do all the work people used to do. In a Utopian future that means people get to live a life of ease. In a dystopian future that means only the owners of machines have a means of making a living and the rest live on government generosity (get out your ration cards for Soylent Green). In a really dystopian future that means the machines realize they don't need us anymore and lace the Soylent Green with sterility drugs. (They don't need to murder us all, just stop us from reproducing and wait a hundred years.)

4. I guess they will have to learn a new profession or draw unemployment like steelworkers,

autoworkers miners and everyone else. I look for touch screens in all the fast food restaurants and then a
touch screen on the table in sit down restaurants instead of a server. Nobody is safe anymore not even
minimum wage workers. We need a shorter work week.

5. I dont know

 

But change is comming, and there is no stopping it.

30,000 people die every year on the roads.

It would not suprise me if we could acheive a 90% drop with the right technology.

8. Reminds me

If you ever get rear ended like that, turn the wheel to the right a bit, to avoid flipping over. (hopefully)
