25. I don't understand at all why Uber wants autonomous cars

The Uber we have now requires each driver to own his or her own car. You could probably set up a Uber "taxi company" with multiple cars and hired drivers, but in general every Uber driver has to buy a car, pay for licensing and insurance, and buy fuel. Uber handles dispatching and billing.

The Uber company will have to own autonomous cars, and they'll get stuck with all the expenses. Why would they want that?
