Is Software Spoiling Us? Innovations in Daily Life from Software

February 2018 Podcast
Jeff Boleng

In this podcast, which was excerpted from the webinar Is Software Spoiling Us?, the panel discusses awesome innovations in daily life that are made possible because of software.

“One of the other areas where I think we have seen some extreme impressive advances is in the areas of self-driving cars. People do not tend to think of it, but a self-driving car is much more difficult than just, Put a train on the track and, put a robot on the speed pedal...If a person is coming down the street, a human driver will slow down a little bit to indicate they have seen the person, even if they don’t need to slow down. That kind of behavior is very difficult to train into a machine.” “ ”
