Abstract for this talk:
This talk is a sequel that expands and deepens the analysis from Templeton's earlier talks on the subject of robocars at previous Foresight and related events. One of the most exciting near-term AI prospects is cars that drive themselves -- robocars. Thanks to DARPA's contests, prototype cars are already a reality, and technogical barriers should fall in around a decade. The consequences of making transportation a software problem and bringing Moore's law to cars are breathtaking. They begin with the million people killed each year in accidents and the hundreds of billions of human-hours wasted driving, and extend to providing a way to make light, efficient electric cars based on existing technology marketable to the public.
