    I’d love to see some discussion around legal policy with respect to self-driving cars. It’s clear that self-driving cars of the type that Google is developing could save thousands of lives and deliver amazing gains in energy efficiency. 

    However, as soon as a glitch contributes to a death, lawsuits will be flying. What company would want to commercialize this technology when it’s guaranteed to end up in court?

    If telephone companies can get immunity from lawsuits in the name of national security, then perhaps self-driving car manufacturers should be immune from lawsuits in the name of public safety.
