humans do it with just their eyes, which are far limited in vision compared to radar. so it's more than physically possible

computers have BRAINS too. human brains may be better now at driving, but computer brains will catch up soon enough

isn't there a list of things that computers can do better? driving will get on that list soon

A truck driver "accidentally" backed into a driverless shuttle in Vegas shortly after it launched. This is how the revolution begins!

Soon, the AI will determine the only way to keep us safe is to make us stay in our homes.
