Humans will be banned from driving in as little as 25 years’s time as cars controlled by artificial intelligence take over our roads, an expert has predicted.
A UK expert has claimed stopping humans from driving is inevitable and will save thousands of lives.
Omar Rahim, chief executive of technology company Energi Mine, said our propensity to let emotions affect our decision-making means we should not be trusted to drive.
It would be much safer to leave the decisions to machines that are programmed for the job, he told an audience at the Internet of Things Congress in Barcelona.
‘In 20 years, imagine explaining to a child that adults used to drive two tonnes of metal at 70mph [112kph] on roads in the pouring rain, relying on human judgement for guidance’, he said, according to the Mirror.
‘It will be like trying to explain to a child today what a public telephone box is.’
