  • Self driving cars and the child-ball problem

    “…if a ball were to roll onto a road, a human might expect that a child could follow. Artificial intelligence cannot yet provide that level of inferential thinking.” This quotation from 2012 has already been overtaken by the extraordinary progress in the development of self-driving cars.

    This is a graphic record of the event. Jeremy Harrison, the head of the Institute of Risk Management, is laughing because I have just called him a sneaky bastard for inviting me to dinner without warning me that he had this in mind. And I am looking bemused because I was – and still am. …
