The technology behind driverless, “AI” cars seems to be advancing more quickly than people are comfortable with. Well, most people—some sleepy Tesla drivers are super-comfortable with computers taking the wheel.
Right now, a relative minority of people are comfortable ceding full control to their hardware, and even fewer can afford it. But the tech will get cheaper and more widespread. People will grow up with it, and eventually, fear of AI cars will seem antiquated.
It’s already easy to see how future generations will judge the very idea of humans driving cars. When you stop and really think about it, it already seems insane. People often cite air travel as being way safer than driving because it somehow makes us feel safer, even though many of us drive more than we fly. We have a blind spot when it comes to driving.
