  • “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.” “ ”
