So AVs are trained to not hit humans but if it´s not a human the AV will not dodge it? If a 1m diameter stone fall in the middle of the road the AV will crash with it because it´s not a human?

Sorry but I can´t believe that, if that´s what they really said in the documentary, my next question is who paid that documentary

That's not what I said. The point is that the vehicle has to be trained and it has trouble with and can get confused when it sees something it is not trained to recognize.
It was a NOVA documentary.

Went back and re-watched the episode. It was not a guy in a hoodie, it was a guy wearing a turban.

Racist AI, clearly they'd not trained it to recognise Sikhs as human.

Anyone here ever hear about the tight-fisted farmer? He was a man outstanding in his field!.. Anyway! He very successfully trained his donkey to live and work hard without food... trouble is, the next day it dropped dead!

Then there’s the song that goes,.. one hundred green bottles standing on a wall. If one green bottle should accidentally fall...

Autonomous drifting a Delorean.
I assume they picked that ancient POS for marketing? Its relevance to the cybertruck hype probably won't hurt either..?

Probably not what we all expect from AVs, but mark this day because this is history, first motorsports race with no driver involved ever
