Artificial Intelligence systems controlling self-driving Taxis will not be able to cope believes Apple Co-founder Steve Woziank

2 Oct 2018

 

Steve Wozniak is one of the biggest and most influential men in the world of technology— the Co-founder of tech giants, Apple and multi-millionaire, its fair to say he knows a thing or two about merging modern technology into everyday life.


Last week at MasterCard’s 'Connecting Tomorrow' event in Barcelona, Wozniak spoke about his views on whether fully autonomous vehicles could ever really integrate into modern society.

He said that he doesn’t believe that the Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems controlling self-driving cars will be able to cope with the reality of operating alongside human driven vehicles.

Wozniak believes the only way they could operate is if roads had tracks on them — which they don’t — and if they did, they would basically be trams.

He said:

“I don’t believe that that sort of ‘vision intelligence’ is going to be like a human.”

Wozniak highlighted that AI is designed to spot everything that is “normal” on the roads, but will struggle with anything that falls within the “abnormal” bracket, such as temporary road signs.

He went on to say:

“They aren’t going to be able to read the words on signs and know what they mean. I’ve really given up.”

Wozniak explained that himself and co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs thought the firm would develop its own autonomous car, but then they[supposedly] gave up the hardware so they could move on to develop the software for the vehicles — and then Apple gave that up.
