Driverless anything

My husband and I have an ongoing discussion on driverless cars and planes.

We agree that the technology is incredible.

I will never get in one.


Because no matter how wonderful the technology is, too much can wrong. Think of all the hacking cases or the regular failing of computer systems.

Every time it happens, I say, "SEE!!!" And it happens a lot, with our wifi service provider, our credit union credit cards, etc. etc

Last week I resisted saying "SEE!!!"  when all VISA payment systems were frozen in the UK. I am so proud of myself, but I will not get in a car, bus, plane unless there is a human ,with all the potential of not being perfect, is in control.

I agree. Technology is there to help when a person needs help, not to take over. People can judge individual circumstances, computers can't, no matter how advanced.
