In this post, let’s talk about a good thing
It is impressive, the progress that has been made by Google and others in the realm of self-driving cars. I can certainly see the wins around having cars drive themselves while allowing the occupants to text, work or whatever else they might do. It reminds me of my own commute practices during the work week and how I am able to do other things while heading to work.Yup, I take a train, and then bike to my office from the train station. I think the Amtrak train and other services like it are called public transportation.
Public transportation i.e modes of transportation enabling folks to get around at a reasonable price.
It seems to me this latest wave of self driving vehicles and their attendant technologies are a great next step for us all. Imagine if this technology was deployed in support of public transportation on a large scale.
Who knows, in light of all the sercurity and privacy issues everyone is concerned about might at least catalyze the transformation of Google’s assertion “Don’t be evil” into “be fabulously good, and help others”.
