Deploying a safe and trustworthy AV in different markets
Now that we have removed the human from the vehicle, has the AV become safer in traffic? No. We have removed the human and not the human element. But wait, is removing the human the solution? No. In fact, the opposite is true: the more the merrier. In my multi-pillared approach to continuously improving and deploying safe and trustworthy autonomous vehicles, inclusion is key. Data, verification and personas need to be weighed equally. Humans in our different roles (as engineers, as drivers, as traffic inspectors, etc) are to be modeled using AI in order to understand and prove the safety of AVs.
