Bonus Episode: The Autonocast Reacts To The Uber Crash Video

Things have been moving fast since we learned that an Uber autonomous drive test vehicle was involved in a fatal crash in Tempe, Arizona earlier this week. In our last discussion episode we urged restraint when discussing the incident itself, but with the release of video of the crash a terrifying scenario is coming into focus. Not only does it appear that Uber's autonomous drive system failed in fundamental ways, but so to did the safety driver who was supposed to be the last line of defense against "edge cases." In order to keep up with this rapidly-developing story, Alex, Kirsten and Ed got together to discuss what the video appears to show, what it means, and where Uber and the entire autonomous drive space needs to go from here.
