“Think as I think,” said a man, “or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.” And after I thought of it, I said, “I will, then, be a toad.” ― Stephen Crane
Metaphor...wait is that a lie?
Doesn't seem like much of a fair fight.
With driverless semi-trucks already on the road, the movie is probably in the works. I haven't seen any of the new West World yet. Are there driverless cars hunting people down? Not that far fetched that a hacker could reprogram one to chase human figures.
There is a certain arrogance to those who are working on making driverless autos. But, having worked countless cases and seen the carnage caused by drinking, drugs, inattentive driving[particularly since cell phones]; these driverless cars have a low bar to hurdle regarding safety.
Spielberg shoulda stuck to this sort of thing. All his "statement" films are be-drecked with liberal pieties.
I have a bevy of computer controlled machines working for me 16 hours a day doing complicated work virtually unattended. I would never trust a human being to do that work accurately or reliably. The airplanes we fly in are mostly computer piloted, and most crashes are caused by human error.A lot of driving is easy, boring, and monotonous - perfect for automation. When I think about the people driving around me from teenagers to the infirm, I, for one, welcome our robot overlords, or "slaves" is more accurate.
