having a A
huge leap forward to robotics R&D (my 10/05 post
Autonomous land vehicles - drivers not required), DARPA has again raised the bar.
Now entering the realm of “The
real urban driving challenge” and the deadline is 3rd Nov 2007. Beside
boundary conditions, how the machines would do? How well the artificial

find out. Can’t wait to see an autonomous vehicle running a light (or not). Kudos to the scientists and developers working on it.
This reminds me, one of the
objections on Alan Turing’s 1950’s artificial intelligence paper was that a computer will NEVER be able to “Drive in
