The Internet is a-twitter with the news that George Hotz has built his own self-driving car and claims he will unseat MobilEye as the supplier of autonomous driving technology.
Elon Musk makes the important point that getting self-driving technology to work 99% of the time is much different than getting self-driving cars to work 99.99999% of the time.
Nonetheless, this seems pretty impressive. I don’t think I’d be worried if I were MobilEye or Tesla, but I am impressed by George Hotz.
