Long before Elon Musk’s recent announcement about his brain-machine start-up, Neuralink, Michael Robinson was pondering these things in his autonomous car design with the Lancia Design Center in the late 1990s. And, as depicted in the above infographic, it is the human-machine interface that will play a big role in the acceptance of autonomous vehicles. […]
Utopia or dystopia are the typical scenarios envisioned because of technological advances. In his ongoing series on how autonomous vehicles will disrupt society, Mike Robinson’s infographic illustrates some of the possibilities that deep learning creates; a so-called “super intelligence” that will make Einstein seem like an infant. Strap on that metaphorical safety belt for a ride […]
In the suddenly fast changing mobility space, technology is sometimes secondary to the pace of government action in terms of the introduction of new features and services.
