Listening In: Are Driverless Cars the Next Big Thing?

April 2, 2014 11:52 AMvideo

In this week’s Listening In segment, we take you to “Driverless Cars: Silicon Valley Dream or Next Big Thing?,” a panel from the Council on Foreign Relations‘ Emerging Technology Series. MIT Center for Digital Business director Erik Brynjolfsson, Intel research scientist Jennifer Healey, and Devil’s Advocate Group managing director Chunka Mui, join Princeton University lecturer James Shinn to discuss the future of driverless cars and the economic, legal, and policy questions that they raise. Though fully self-driving automobiles may yet be several years away, more limited applications of the technology, such as automated collision avoidance and self-parking are already nearing the market.
