Methinks the car will record video of the attack, post it to Facebook, let Facebook's facial recognition algorithms identify the assailant, and send that to the cops (as well as the car's corporate legal department). The attacker could be facing criminal charges and a civil lawsuit for damages before they make it home.Californians are not prepared to sit idly by while the machines take over, but rather are fighting backcalifornians attack self-driving cars"We will not go quietly into the night!

Perfect timing you know, just as Amazon and Google have ramped up their advertising (during the Oscars) basically saying, "Let your digital assistant run your life for you."

Here is a question - since Alexa can access the Internet, would it have a way (and an understanding of how and why) to communicate with the other digital assistants out there.
Each would have a unique IP address, I think, but would they have a kind of marker showing what they were? Or could they ping each other - "are you Alexa?"
It's far-fetched maybe, but if they are going rogue individually then this is definitely something to consider. Hehe.
I do not have one, but if I did I would turn it off and unplug it now. Deterrence!
It's one big organisms with millions of ears.there must be millions of alexas (alexae?) out there now, but are they all distinct units or are they part of one big "organism"?
Sad and, unfortunately, inevitable. It is notable that pedestrian accidents are generally way up lately and not due to AV's.
so speeding, and I would have to assume that was deliberate so they must be programmed to speed.Traveling at 38 mph in a 35 mph zone on Sunday night, the Uber self-driving car made no attempt to brake, according to the Police Department’s preliminary investigation.
