Re: Not a problem solved

"a self drive car cannot possibly arrive at the correct solution every time."

That's a bold claim.

It's far more likely to do it reliably and regularly than a human. It will take statistically proven decisions, and it will do that from a much broader array of sensing inputs than a human could.

I struggle with seeing how people who work in computing could see this as unsolvable. It's simply an engineering problem - the right inputs processed at the right time, matched against a statistically driven decision tree. How is any of that impossible?

An large number of possible input variables just needs more resources than a small number - it doesn't make the problem unsolvable.
