I’ll start with autonomous vehicles. Seems like a nightmare to adopt and AI still sucks getting confused by rain, snow or even chalk drawing on the road.

Technology that’s considered new and experimental even in the IT sector and we’re trying to make it not kill people.

Maybe not in the US. Other parts of the country have gone to pre-covid normal, minus having to wear masks in public and use hand sanitizer, which isn’t really a huge inconvenience anyway.

I don’t mind wearing a mask in public or use hand sanitiser, that’s just called being very hygenic. I’m quite fed up with social distancing though.
