From 2012 I warned here and in talks that the biggest and most significant problem in big data security was integrity. The LLM zealots didn’t listen.
By 2016 in the security conference circuit I was delivering a series of talks about driverless cars being a huge looming threat to pedestrian safety.
Eventually, with Uber and Tesla both killing pedestrians in April 2018, I warned that the move to such low quality robots on the road would increase conflict and fatalities even more instead of helping safety.
Well, as you might guess from my failure to slow LLM breaches, I had little to no impact on the people in charge of regulating driverless engineering; nowhere near enough influence to stop predictable disasters.
It’s especially frustrating to now read that the NHTSA, which was politically corrupted by Tesla in 2016 to ignore robot safety and hide deaths, is still so poorly prepared to prevent driverless causing pedestrian deaths.
Feds Have No Idea How Many Times Cruise Driverless Cars Hit Pedestrians
Speaking of data, confidence in driverless has continued to fall as evidence rolls in, which is a classic product management dilemma of where and how to field safety reports. Welcome to 2012? We could have avoided so much suffering and loss.
