Talk:1925: Self-Driving Car Milestones
This page is, without offense to the creator, a mess. We're gonna need a table for this. 22.214.171.124 19:14, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
- Or at least a list. I have created one, but it could use fleshing out.WingedCat (talk) 19:55, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
- List is fine. You don't need a table for everything - expecially if this table had only one or two columns...
- none taken, it's my first time (I only wrote the first three points from a blank page) 126.96.36.199 09:08, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
I'm going to go with a  on that "sex in a self-driving has probably already happened." Are there stats suggesting the amount of coitus per vehicle in the relevant counties?
"This a joke about Boolean satisfiability, as evaluating an arbitrarily complex bumper sticker and determining whether to honk is NP-complete." What? Determining whether to honk has nothing to do with the satisfiability problem; this is more of a joke about getting a computer to evaluate the truth of Boolean expressions that it may have no information about.

I believe the "Autonomous canyon jumping" is related to the self-loathing; a self-loathing is likely to autonomously jump off a cliff. 188.8.131.52 22:30, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
"As of 2017, self-driving s require a human to be able to take over just in case, but any such trip where the human never actually took control would qualify for this milestone." I seems like not all places require a human backup driver: https://www.theverge.com/2017/11/7/16615290/waymo-self-driving-safety-driver-chandler-autonomous 184.108.40.206 23:19, 6 December 2017 (UTC) Time to start printing "Honk if this statement evaluates as 'do not honk!'" bumper stickers! 220.127.116.11 01:24, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
Is this related to the Vsauce Mind Field video about self-driving s and the trolley problem the literally released today, or is it just a weird coincidence?18.104.22.168 05:13, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
The likelihood of trolley-like problems is no lower for an autonomous car than a human-driven one, since it depends on external factors. It might be true that if a significant number of the other cars on the road were replaced with self-driving ones, that would reduce the occurrence of conflicts, and therefore the likelihood and severity of these problems would be lower, but it would be lower for self-driven and human-driven cars alike. The real issue with such debates is that they tend to make a false assumption that existing human drivers are good at solving these problems, when the whole thrust of these thought experiments is to demonstrate that there are no generally accepted solutions to these problems.22.214.171.124 09:33, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
