Re: I like polluting Google's data set
The scary part is the realisation that they can't get computers to recognise traffic lights so they have to ask a human to train it.
What does that say about the hype coming from Google, Tesla and others how we'll all be driven around by computers in a few years? The obvious answer is its all kool aid. Any self driving car will be a simulacrum, only one bad recognition away from doing something completely nuts for the circumstance.
I wonder if future versions of reCAPTCHA will challenge users to ID pregnant women, wheelchair users, carjackers and crazy homeless people so they can tune the car's behaviour when a human steps out in front of a vehicle.
