The Age of the Autonomous Car is coming, and if you want to survive it, you need to re-watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and learn the Lesson of the Swordsman.

We are now poised to solve the “problem” of human drivers with Autonomous Cars. And that’s a problem.
If Indy’s gun had misfired, he’d have been toast.
What will happen when Autonomous Cars fail?
