Re: The future of AI in cars
Absolutely. Both groups you mention will benefit from AI and autonomous cars. It's not only in the US that it is noticeable less emphasis among the 16 to 18-year-olds around driving their own car. The same I have noticed in Europe.
I would make a difference, though, between having a driver's license and driving their own, or family owned car. Car share seems to be an option that many are taking. Then you have places like Amsterdam where there are more bicycles than cars.
I completely agree with you about the kids who are born today. If we are expecting fully autonomous cars to be common by 2020-2021, by 2034 when those kids will be 18 most likely they won't choose to own an old car. And by then, every new car will be fully autonomous. In 20 years' time driving as we know it will be rare.
