A Fascinating film about the future of Self-Driving Cars
14 March 2019 | by JustCuriositySee all my reviews

Autonomy was warmly-received at its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. The film was produced in cooperation with Car and Driver Magazine and has done an excellent job of providing a serious examination of the many (almost endless) questions that are raised by development of self-driving vehicles. They raise many provocative questions about the economics, political, legal, safety, cost, ethical implications, and cultural reverberations. They seriously examine what driverless vehicles will mean. Of course, they can not answer all these questions, but just asking them is a significant step forward. The film moves rapidly and is highly engaging. I highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to think seriously about this really important technological development that is likely to have immense implications on daily lives in the next decade or so.
