    Artificial intelligence.. @Cowcatcher NO not artificial insemination.. LOL..
    I was talking to the nephew the other evening who is a tech geek and he was telling me about sitters ?? I said are you serious there's 18 wheelers going down the road without actual truck drivers.. Yes he said, he figures in the next 5 or so years that truck drivers will be out of business.. Talking long haul, big business.. not livestock, rock and short haul oil trucks..
    What do you know about AI, other than ya don't like it Alexa..

    Well, that kind of AI or artificial intelligence is what someone passes off as intelligence when they don’t actually have any real intelligence on the topic. Some folks may only exhibit AI on some subject matter while others may rely on AI completely in their daily walk of life.

    Ex Machina... It's a trip. I absolutely believe driverless trucks will replace truckers just as robotics replaced labor. They only require fuel to run 24/7. It's a dang shame, and your elected officials will welcome it as they'll find some way to make a killing off of it.

    Your nephew needs to stop listening to the pie-in-the-sky dreamers in Silicon Valley.

    There are no "driverless trucks" on American roads right now, with the exception of limited test vehicles (which are still required to have safety drivers). The NHTSA just gave the first approval for driverless road vehicles of any kind to a company doing deliveries in Houston, and their vehicles aren't even on the road yet, so there's no way that driverless trucks will be on the highways in any kind of numbers within five years.

    Long-haul trucking, ironically, is one of the places I do expect automation to make big inroads (largely thanks to a lack of available drivers), but I see it more as one driver leading a caravan of automated trucks slaved to his rig.

    Even if we assumed that the technical problems could be overcome by technology (which is highly questionable), there's still a yuuuuge problem that's far more difficult to solve--liability. If a driverless vehicle is involved in a collision, who's liable? The company that owns the vehicle? The company that operates it? The company that made it? The company that made the control systems? The company that wrote the software?

    And then there's the regulatory environment. Hoo boy, talk about getting stuck in the briar patch...

    I mean, there's no doubt that driverless vehicles are coming, it's just that they won't be here in any significant numbers in the near future, IMHO.

    I've been writing IMHO since '89. I'm not liable to change that any time soon.
