So i have one of those Progressive Insurance "Snapshot" gizmos in my Car's data port. It snitches to Flo about my driving habits and if I do well I get a  break on my rate.It's supposed to subtly "train" a driver to do better by beeping when you make too-sudden stops or starts. Now, i'm a very conservative driver; opbey the speed limit, all that jazz. But stuff happens:  the guy in front of you suddenly brakes. A kid runs into the street half a block ahead.  Farking birds or squirrels or whatever. I come to a smooth but rapid stop, anf Flo beeps at me.  The worst is, sudden yellow lights at intersections. I get a beep for stopping, no beep if I run the yellow, o run the red.  Flo is trying to "train" me to drive WORSE in these cases..

I used the entire length of a turn lane to slow down and turn, and still got beeped at. I'll slow down as soon as the light turns yellow and get beeped at. This is while driving the speed limit.

i don't think people can comprehend how far along A.I is yet. This is going to disrupt so many Jobs. You don't need a conscious A.I. that thinks exactly like a human to do most jobs. Repetitive A.I. is here and the mechanical parts to bring it to the real world are already being made or in place.

A.I self driving cars and trucks are only a few years away from taking over the roads. shiat is getting real.

//has theory that those "i'm not a robot" captchas are training A.I.
