@robotcarsley I have recently watched this otherwise nice documentary, "a compelling vision" for 2040 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2040_(film)
And oddly enough, its vision of a bright feature does not include a public transit, at all! Only electric self-driving cars.
They have even correctly identified one of the problems: traffic jams, huge untenable 99-lane highways... but then they say that electric self-driving cars will somehow eliminate the need for most of the lanes 🤷♀️
@robotcarsley what is the context for the first image
@shadow8t4 the article
@robotcarsley that's a very scary way to market "self-driving" cars....
@shadow8t4 it doesn't really matter how they're marketed because they proceed from assumptions that do not match reality. Which is why the answer to the headline is "not coming anytime soon"
@robotcarsley yeah that's more what I was getting at. Having the assumption that you'll be able to just not pay attention whatsoever in a self-driving car is... Bad... At least as of any immediate future.
