Well it’s the end of a decade. A decade which saw faith in self-driving cars fluctuate from utopian salvation to an over-emphasised, unnecessary distractions (and back again).
For some, the delayed delivery of the technology appears to be the most disappointing, while for others the delay only emphasises the sheer complexity of AI, transportation, and human behaviour. CNN has a nice piece recapping the decade, and progress made
Speaking of delays.. this last month has been a doozy, with time spent in Brussels, Cologne, London, Vancouver and Calgary. My sincerest apologies for the delay in news (and a very long newsletter!). I’ll be back at the newsletters in mid-January after a short break in Canada and San Francisco.
If you’re in the bay area and want to meet up, I’ll be in SF from January 6th-9th and it’d be great to meet you! You can send me an email by responding to this newsletter.
