Should Self-Driving Be Rethought?
Show Notes

Self-driving seemed like a can’t-miss technology. Smart people were working on it. Money was poured into it. So why, decades later, aren’t you answering your email, while lounging in the backseat of a self-driving car on your daily commute? Sven Strohband, who came early to the world of self-driving cars and is now a partner at Khosla Ventures, says: we’ve been going about it all wrong. But, he argues, the revolution is indeed coming. Waabi CEO Raquel Urtasun explains where we’ve veered off-track and how to "course correct" to get self-driving to everyone.
