    They didn’t invest enough (ie hire the right people) in their simulation team, so they don’t have enough of the right data to train on.

      Itt: people who have no idea how hard it is to build an AI that can correctly react to the dynamic stupidity that pedestrians exhibit.

      Shit, as a fellow pedestrian I have problems reacting to the dynamic stupidity pedestrians exhibit.

      How so?

      Well for starters it’s a shitshow internally on both the tech debt side and on the management side. Our CFO acts as our CHRO and were about to basically downlevel half the company in a month. Oh and we’ve fired 9 executives/senior leaders in the last 8 months. Basically GM just came to town on a surprise visit to see what the fuck is up and let me tell you they are NOT happy. Shit is FUBAR.

      Sorry to hear that. Do you think these issues are company wide or specific teams?

      It’s not every team, but it’s not something you’re going to ever be able to avoid bumping into everyday in someway if you do get on the rare non toxic team.

    I guess with all the hype in the industry, people have unrealistic expectations of what technology can do. But come on now, you made it through an interview, you can’t be that naive.

    Self driving cars don’t know how to deal with some edgecase-y things like driving next to a bikerack in the parking lane yet. Or belligerent residents of 6ths street dashing into traffic from behind some parked van. In other news, water is wet.

    Most of us aren’t lucky like aurora guys to not have to deal with bullshit pr statements executives drop in random interviews. Elon promised people teslas will be driving themselves in 2017...

    I watched like 20 waymo cars struggle with making an unprotected right onto a busy street in mountain view the other day. Someone call the newspapers, self driving cars are hard to make.

    Side note, since when can you just innacurately summarize another paper’s article and call that journalism. Cuz i want that job, if the whole self driving thing don’t work out 😹

      Your points are valid.

      Though you should ignore such blind posts. They will only serve to ruin your day.

      Thanks, aurora guy:)

      I’m not offended by it, just doing my part to educate the general public during my commute.

    It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    Not that it would help: but Cruise Automation is attempting to solve a really hard problem. I can list a host of easy problem, but offended people will come at me with pitchforks.

    And such news (both good and bad) will come in waves for a while.

    Well not surprising at all. Except waymo, everyone is just doing some demos, not real product yet.
