Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine

Society has slowly handed over significant control to computers but how much should we rely on them over our own instincts? Mathematician Hannah Fry uncovers the hidden algorithms behind almost every aspect of our modern lives; lifting the lid on their inner workings, demonstrating their power and exposing their limitations.

Cars: will algorithms power the perfect autonomous vehicle? Between Bayes theorem and the problem of mischievous humans, Hannah Fry has her doubts...

 

BBC Radio 4 - Frontiers: Driverless cars

Most traffic accidents are caused by human error, but would we accept driverless vehicles that communicate with each other and with the roads to prevent collisions happening?

Thatcham Research - Autonomous Emergency Braking

AEB is probably the most important development in car safety since the seat belt and could save an incredible 1,100 lives and 122,860 casualties in the UK over the next decade.

It’s a safety technology that monitors the road ahead and will automatically brake the car if the driver fails to respond to a collision threat. Think of it like an extra pair of eyes on the road and an extra foot over the brake pedal, ready to act if you’re distracted. In this way, rather than protect the driver using the seat belt and airbag in a crash, AEB can avoid the crash completely.
