The most dangerous moment in a self-driving car involves no immediate or obvious peril.
Sharrock's insight:

This article could be used for discussions about technology, especially for artificial intelligence, robots, and autonomous vehicles. Questions and challenges.

 

from the article: "Thrust back into control while going full-speed on the freeway, the driver might be unable to take stock of all the obstacles on the road, or she might still be expecting her computer to do something it can't. Her reaction speed might be slower than if she'd been driving all along, she might be distracted by the email she was writing or she might choose not to take over at all, leaving a confused car in command.

“Our team's biggest surprise was discovering that many Internet users have tried to conceal their identity or their communications from others,” noted Sara Kiesler, an author of the report and the Hillman Professor of Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon. “It's not just a small coterie of hackers. Almost everyone has taken some action to avoid surveillance. And despite their knowing that anonymity is virtually impossible, most internet users think they should be able to avoid surveillance online—they think they should have a right to anonymity for certain things, like hiding posts from certain people or groups.”
