Driverless vehicles are poised to usher in a massive disruption of our transportation system, our urban landscapes, our economy -- and quite possibly the very fabric of society. Anyone who wants to understand what's coming must read this fascinating book. -- Martin Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Robots Driverless is a great read for anybody interested in technological, societal, and ethical implications of self-driving cars. The book reaches across fields and issues thoughtfully, and presents a comprehensive view of the state of the art. -- Daniela Rus, Director, CSAIL, MIT Best explanation of deep machine learning for a general audience I've ever read. And I'd never realized how thoroughly driverless cars will reshape the country: no more ambulance sirens, no more road signs, no more drunk drivers. But they could also deepen economic inequality and enable scary new crimes. This book will help us all get ready. -- George Musser, contributing editor at Scientific American and Nautilus magazines, author of Spooky Action at a Distance As we anticipate the implausible once again becoming inevitable -- when in the near future autonomous vehicles take over our roads, Driverless presents an excellent and comprehensive assessment of this disruptive new technology and the issues and implications relating to its adoption. It's a great roadmap to help us achieve the smoothest possible transition. -- Steven Berkenfeld, Managing Director in Investment Banking, Barclays
