The Vodka Pundit tackles Uber's autonomous driving and leaves us with this:
I’ve found that the best way to avoid an accident is to imagine the stupidest thing each driver around you could possibly do in each instant, and then to count on them actually doing it. (This method prevented me, barely, from being forced into a concrete highway divider just yesterday by a careless driver in a black Nissan Murano.) But can Uber or anyone else create an algorithm for cynical imagination?
"[C]reate an algorithm for cynical imagination?"?!? Isn't that why we have Twitter?
