“It’s like a nuclear bomb of Hiroshima scale going off every month”

That’s Hod Lipson , a professor at Columbia University who’s bullish on robotics and AI, on the estimated number of people that die each week in car crashes (think: ~28K). Bottom Line: if you’re looking for a book on driverless cars, consider his book “Driverless: Intelligent Cars and the Road Ahead”. Speaking of driverless cars, there’s a legitimate concern that human drivers will  attempt to ‘bully robo-drivers’, which is why the first 100 self-driving 4×4 vehicles to be leased to drivers in London come 2018 will look no different than other Volvos of the same model. I got 99 problems and bullying ain’t one.
