I’m skeptical of the move to self-driving cars because of increased privacy invasion & remapping socio-geographic relationships around the needs of machines. On the other hand, was someone whose vision is declining and sees her driving days numbered—and I live in a rural area with no public transpo—the day can’t come soon enough. Wonder what more human-centered alternatives look like, or how this could be done in a way that centers the needs of vulnerable communities over the needs of machines.
