That was all over the news, but I kept wondering about the ''back up'' driver. Nothing was said about it.

Comment by Davy on March 26, 2018 at 11:31am

Something I just come across and it is rather interesting reading 

Driverless cars and bodiless brains

The death of a pedestrian during a test drive of a driverless vehicle (even as a backup human sat in the driver's seat) calls into question not just the technology—which didn't seem to detect the pedestrian crossing a busy roadway and therefore didn't brake or swerve—but also the notion that driving is nothing more than a set of instructions that can be carried out by a machine.

The surprised backup driver seemed to have confidence in the inventors of driverless cars as he was looking down at his computer briefly just before impact.

The rest of the story can be found here

Or just died of the many problems.

Comment by Stephen on March 22, 2018 at 5:17pm

The poor young lass was probably prized and maybe killed because of her mutation. God story Mrs.B.

Comment by Davy on March 22, 2018 at 5:07pm

That is very interesting Mrs.B 
I read it and what they found out about it from its DNA is very interesting as there were some effects due to the DNA they have never come across before.

His name will be placed up there with the other greats of science. He was a person of great moral heroism. He will be greatly missed.

 "He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."
