NTSB Chair: Self-Driving Cars Will Need Human Co-Pilots

MIT Technology Review reports that Christopher Hart, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, “says his agency’s experience investigating accidents involving autopilot systems used in trains and planes suggests that humans can’t be fully removed from control. He told MIT Technology Review that future autos will be much safer, but that they will still need humans as copilots.” (The magazine posts a transcript of the interview.)
