Again asserting something I never said.
I am arguing that self driving cars are already safer than most human drivers just like GPT4 is already better than most humans at a variety of language based tasks.
Notice the articles discuss traffic disruptions on the order of ~20 minutes. Daily I see crashes and nonsense from humans that do similar things.
I don't hold autonomous driving systems to vastly higher standards than humans, a few incidents here and there just means they are already better than most humans. Progress is incremental. If we are ok with 45,000 people dying a year in car crashes then I don't see why we should prevent progress and development of safer technologies because of... 20 minute delays?!? thats insane to me.
The media pieces are just fluff to get clicks.
BTW we can agree Musk is a fraud and makes inflated claims all the time, and shouldn't be viewed on a authority on these matters.
