Steve Wozniak: If You Want to Learn About AI Killing People, "Get a Tesla"
The Woz is at it again.


Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has some harsh words for Tesla. In a new interview, Wozniak argued that the Elon Musk-led company's self-driving efforts leave a lot to be desired — and are actively making Teslas incredibly unsafe to drive.
"And boy, if you want a study of AI gone wrong and taking a lot of claims and trying to kill you every chance it can, get a Tesla," Wozniak told CNN earlier this week during a televised interview, as quoted by Electrek.

The Apple cofounder does make a compelling point: There do appear to be very real risks involved in allowing your Tesla to take over the wheel.

Last year, Wozniak recalled the "phantom breaking" issues that were plaguing him while driving his Model S in an interview with Stephen "Steve-O" Glover, causing him to slow down significantly while driving on the interstate.
"This is so dangerous!" he told Glover at the time. "It’s happened to us a hundred times, at least, because we drive so much."
Musk reportedly convinced Wozniak to buy a Model S back in 2013. At the time, Musk told him that the car "would drive itself across the country by the end of 2016," Wozniak told CNN.
"I actually believed those things, and it’s not even close to reality," he added, arguing that the software could end up killing the occupant.

AI: One job at a time, "One Ringy-Dingy" at a time.

Luddites Unite!

Boycott Buggy-Whips!

"There'll be spandex jackets, one for everyone."


British telecommunications giant BT Group said it's planning to cut as many as 55,000 jobs by 2030 — and at least 10,000 of those jobs could be replaced by some form of artificial intelligence.

He said already the company's chatbot named "Amy" can deal with most customer questions. The company's continued experimentation with generative AI, like OpenAI's popular ChatGPT, could lead to new products and services, he said.



Get your ticket to that wheel in space while there's time
The fix is in
You'll be a witness to that game of chance in the sky
You know we've got to win
Here at home, we'll play in the city
Powered by the sun
Perfect weather for a streamlined world
There'll be spandex jackets, one for everyone.
