Kle – That self-driving car/truck thing… 10 years is dreaming.
Quite possibly 50, though.
I can only speculate when, but it will happen and on that day, the world will change in ways that are catastrophic to many people. Others, of course, are cool with it. Automation is an interesting servant and master and the holy grail is the self-driving car/truck at the moment.
It’s apples and oranges to a great degree. The Army wants an all terrain robot. The civilian market wants a vehicle that will traverse the hardball roads that your Google Street Map delineates. And the Army has been working on it for more than 30 years. I can recall a DOD project of that sort at least 40 years ago. Which is indicative of my age.
Once a robot slave army can make more robots, elites will have no need of feisty, deplorable, humans and they may need to “think the ranks”. I think that they may start in Texas. Of course, they’ll spare Beto (Irish Bob), because he’s more progressive than you are.
I’m afraid that you’re right on. And the Stork drama continues.
