Earlier today, Uber announced that a Self-Driving Fleet Arrives in Pittsburgh This Month.
A quick check of my calendar shows this is August of 2016. Is my calendar wrong? Well, not to worry. I put on my naysayer hat and discovered the “facts”.
This will never work because Uber did not address snow, fog, heavy rain, dust, pigeons, propane fireballs, or 80-Year-Olds on Roller Skates suddenly veering into traffic. Besides, the car doesn’t have the morals it needs.
Also note the ride will be supervised by humans in the driver’s seat for the “time being.” Of course, naysayers suggest the words “for the time being” mean forever.
