  1. 1. If the technology was available and worked as expected, would you support legislation that required this in new cars?

Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature.

It’s not just the deployment result and the output of the classifiers, but also what you do with the data afterwards.

That’s partly why the higher end systems process up to 2000 frames per second and getting faster.

Pretty cool stuff, but yeah, going to take another 15 years before I trust it too... 😁

I dont know if anyone brought this up but Audi some years back had a breathalyzer key as an option. I think if it works reliably I have no problem with it, seatbelts and helmet laws were debated as infringement but the bottom line is driving is a privilege not a right so if something can be done to make the roads safer then I'm all for it.

I have an Audi and my breathalyzer key is me.  If I've had more than 2 drinks in under 2 hours I don't drive.  Most of my favorite watering holes are just down the hill, so if I need to I can just walk home.
