Humanizing Autonomy

Today smart, autonomous machines are all around us. AI arrived in our homes, pockets and on the street. We welcome the automation and our digital helpers but at the same time we are uncertain if we can trust them; an anxiety fueled by the small numbers of human minds who comprehend how the machines make their decisions. It becomes most urgent when we are thinking of self-driving cars. Now is the time to redefine the relationship between humans and vehicles in the city of the future.
