San Francisco Could Kick Robotaxis Out With New Law

Quando nel Gruppo di esperti di alto livello sull’IA della Commissione UE abbiamo affrontato il tema del nostro mandato abbiamo cambiato il termine da “Trusted AI” a “Trustworthy AI”. L’idea e’ che se le cose non sono meritorie di fiducia da parte delle persone, il mercato ne soffre. Le garanzie per gli utenti non sono orpelli fastidiosi ed inutili vincoli, ma fondamentali per un mercato sostenibile.

A new Teamsters-backed bill introduced by state Sen. David Cortese, who represents San Jose, would allow local authorities to put the breaks on and block robotaxi services from operating unless authorized by individual cities and counties. The bill would require that local governments have an ordinance in place to regulate robotaxi companies before commercial autonomous vehicle services are allowed.
