The steering wheel thing is not a law, it's a regulation. It takes one bribe signature to make it happen.

Well, it's not truly autonomous until it doesn't need constant babysitting by a backup human driver. I'm just wondering how long it will take to get there.

The technology shouldn't necessarily have to rely on maps looks Google maps either. But some situations like driving in a blizzard seem just too risky for now at least.

Maps are needed for route planning of course.

You will note all those faces are inordinately good looking.

It seems to me the AI is mocking us. :evil:

Getting closer.

Sex robots to 'stand up straight' in big step towards identical human appearance
Daily Star (UK trash tabloid)
Sex robots will soon stand up straight in a major step towards uncanny human-like appearance.

Silicone Lovers founder Louie Love told Daily Star Online his company is producing dolls powered by artificial intelligence in a factory resembling a scene from HBO hit show Westworld .

He says designers are focusing on "hyper-realism".

Mr Love told Daily Star Online: "New models will be released as technology improves.

"For example, at the moment a new upgraded skeleton will be released so then all the future dolls from that brand will either be made with a lighter, more flexible skeleton or it will at least be available as an upgrade.

...

RealDoll is developing models with 3D vision, that will enable them to recognise an owner in a crowded room.

And Cloud Climax will produce sex robots that breathe using an AI chest cavity.

RealDoll founder, Matt McMullen, told Daily Star Online: "I would say probably within five to 10 years the appearance of a robot is going to drastically improve.

"AI may start to approach something in the mammal category but I don't see, necessarily, human-like intelligence and as such I don't think we can even consider the idea of human like self-awareness.

"That is really the big can of worms that people worry about with AI."
Stay away from that self awareness stuff. They are apt to figure out that whole "saying no" business. :lmao:
