Elon Musk on Tesla's Autopilot: In a year 'a human intervening will decrease safety'

Tesla Model 3 finally available but it will only sell onlineTesla to slash sales force now that the Model 3 electric car is finally ready to order.Tesla CEO Elon Musk reckons autonomous driving technology is so advanced that within a year humans would be worse off taking over a vehicle's control. Musk made the prediction in an interview with MIT researcher Lex Fridman, who published a recent study on "driver functional vigilance" when using Tesla Autopilot. Musk boasted that Telsa's technology was "vastly ahead of everyone", which would include Waymo and GM-backed Cruise Automation, and that "right now this seems like game, set and match". He believes Tesla's technology is almost at the point where allowing humans to steer the vehicle would be more dangerous than relying on Autopilot. "I think it will become very, very quickly, maybe even towards the end of this year – but I'd say, I'd be shocked if it's not next year at the latest – that having a human intervene will decrease safety," predicted Musk. His vision is that once Autopilot is proven to be 200 percent safer than a human driver, allowing the human to take control would increase danger. Musk goes on to compare self-driving cars to elevators, which once upon a time required an elevator operator. "Now no one wants an elevator operator because the automated elevator stops at the floors and it's much safer than the elevator operator," said Musk.The rate of improvement in self-driving car capabilities was "exponential", according to Musk, who argued that there'd be no need for camera-based monitoring of the driver. Fridman questioned Musk about why Tesla allows drivers to use Autopilot in a much...
