You're all too skeptical of super-duper self-driving cars, apparently

Mario kart!

(Or your own choice of game)

While these AI can do wonders, they still fail. They may fail less than humans do. But the problem is not lack of confidence. I'm confident that we can all have flying surf boards (they are buildable, just noisy, people are doing it, it's just a model aircraft under your feet :P ). I'm not confident they won't drop from the sky when someone forgets they only have 7 mins worth of fuel.

Likewise I don't think people have a problem with automated freeways/motorways or automated parking etc. But the drive to "automating all the things" seems steeped more in marketing speech, than in reality or the laws of physics.
