Cars Won’t Drive Themselves Until They Become (Artificially) Intelligent

With large companies investing in AI and startups, expect the technology to supercharge self-driving next year. Even if a trip is only a few blocks, human drivers need to make hundreds of calculations in order to reach their destination safely, and we do it without much thought. For example, is it raining, sunny, clear, or foggy? Is it early morning when kids are walking to school or later in the day? For computers to safely drive cars, they must also take these scenarios into consideration—in fact, they must have the ability to consider every possible scenario. That’s why I predict 2017 will be the year that artificial intelligence (AI) supercharges self-driving technology. In the next year and beyond, we’ll see AI take autonomy to unprecedented levels and allow vehicles to…
