The Pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence

As if driving motor vehicles weren’t risky enough, the second fatality involving an autonomous vehicle has scientists going back to the drawing board to see where artificial intelligence failed.

The first reported fatality involving a driverless car killed a driver in Florida in 2015. This most recent fatality, which occurred in Arizona last month, involved a pedestrian and halted Uber’s use of autonomous vehicle testing on public roads in several cities.

For information about insurance legislation involving autonomous vehicles, visit the website of the National Conference of Insurance Legislatures. I wrote and teach a 3-hour insurance CE webinar for A.D. Banker and Company, Driving into the Future: Uber, Drones, and Driverless Cars if you’re interested in more information about how this technology affects the insurance industry.
