We're few years removed from completely piloted vehicles...

I can't wait until cars are auto piloted on legal state maintained highways. No more DUI's.

The first piloted cars will cost a lot tho. Will take few years for the price to drop. They can probably use sonar to gather information about surroundings, analyze it and process in matter of a second for this to work. Like bats do. Speed of sound is faster than speed of a car, so that should work.

Read Robopocalypse by Daniel Wilson and you won't be so keen on self-piloted cars. The end times are beginning...

I don't think that will ever happen. Almost all software have a single purpose. I doubt computers will ever have consciousness.

Sonar? Sound?


ARSEN, they may not have a lot of electricity in the Ukraine or Russia or Georgia or wherever you're from, but there is this sort of amplified EM called a "laser"...

Seriously dude... We're way more advanced in technology than you might think. We had piloted technology in works for couples decades now...

And that actually has more HP than the Yugo it's made from.

When you consider the amount of wireless networks, how easy basic encryption would be to break for a AI level computer, and the fact more and more things are connected to the "net" it's not that much of a stretch.

Sci-Fi nerd knowledge tells me the issue is the AI would basically become a virus, infecting non sentient electronics and giving them some level of awareness, all with the same goal of working for the "Queen" AI.

I see an immediate flaw: "Please take the ticket."

But I'm always in favor of anything that keeps women from actually driving. So I'll invest.

Time will tell. Computer processing speed doubles every year... Should be too long at this rate.

Nah, Moore's Law is slowing down.


And I use 20MM worth of software everyday, not even including the hardware....and 80% of it is bleeding edge. Yet, if we misplace a ":" or "_" or a ";"...nothing happens. It'll be a while before that takes over the world without root user input.
