    Driverless Cars Could Make Transportation Free for Everyone

    Here's the article's premise (link below): "Want a gratis ride? You’ll just have to stop at some stores along the way." As a pax, it sounds great. For me as a driver, it sounds like Pool+ (or Pool-minus). EDIT: Here's a bit more from the article: "Say you and your friends want to go to the...

    Uber to buy 24,000 Volvo cars for driverless fleet

    Just as I mentioned in numerous posts in the past, driver less will come sooner than people think. The old conversation of "Uber needs to raise rates" and "Uber needs to not flood the driver pool" is all a waste of time and a repeating conversation for drivers since the first U.S. price drops...

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/autonomous-trucks-economy-1.4403057 I distinctly remember all the doubters here that said I was totally off the mark about my prediction about driverless cars and trucks. With learning machines now moving into medicine the changes there will be just as profound...

    Which intelligent car would you buy? One avoids 5 people and killing you. Upscale model spars you.

    Uber and the Rise of the Machines

    Robots don’t draw wages. Machines don’t complain when treated unfairly. Computers don’t file class action lawsuits. I remember, as far back as 20 years ago, experts predicting that vast sections of the labor force would eventually be replaced by automation. The market economy is driven by...
