The buzz: “@OliverCameron: Personal news! I’m starting a new thing with great friends called @voyage. We’re deploying autonomous taxis to real users very, very soon” (Twitter 4/5/17). Remember remote-control toy cars as a kid? Fasten your seatbelt. Real-life remote-control, autonomous taxis, via teleoperations, could be a grown-up reality soon. What is the future of the ride-hailing industry, which has already been upended by newcomers like Uber? How will remote-control taxis co-exist with human-operated cars? Will government take a back seat? The experts speak. Heather Ashton, IDC: “People are so bad at driving cars that computers don't have to be that good to be much better” (Mark Andreessen). Bill Powell, ARI: “Right now the phone is an accessory to the car, but soon the car is going to be an accessory to the phone” (Mark Andreessen). Bill Newman, SAP: “We hope you enjoyed the ride” (Film Total Recall). Join us for Remote-Controlled Taxis: Not the Cabs Your Grandma Took – Part 2.
