After Google announced that it’s Self-driving car project is making great progress, Eric Schimdt sits down with 92nd Street Y and gives more insight on what Google is trying to accomplish. Schmidt seemed very excited about where this project is going to take the company, in a direct quote:
” It’s really an error that we’re allowed to drive the car.” A computer can obviously do this better “once we get a few bugs ironed out.” There are 30,000 people killed on American highways. It’s a terrible tragedy. If there’s some way we can help, that’s a good thing. Most likely scenario is that the car manufacturers end up using some of the technology, and we’re in talks with them. ”
