Apple Co-Founder ‘Gives Up’ On The Idea Of Self-Driving Cars

He’s one of the biggest names in the tech world, but it seems that Steve Wozniak has no faith in autonomous cars.

The Apple co-founder says he has  ‘given up’ on the idea of self-driving cars in the future.

Speaking at Mastercard’s Connecting Tomorrow event in Barcelona this week, Wozniak explained that he doesn’t believe that the AI system controlling self-driving cars will be able to cope with the realities of driving on roads alongside human drivers.


He said: “They have to drive on human roads. If they had train tracks, there would be no problem at all.

“I don’t believe that that sort of ‘vision intelligence’ is going to be like a human.”

To illustrate his point, Wozniak pointed to the possibility of temporary road signs being put up.

He explained: “Artificial intelligence in cars is trained to spot everything that is normal on the roads, not something abnormal.

“They aren’t going to be able to read the words on signs and know what they mean. I’ve really given up.”

Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs back in the 1970s and explained that for a while, he thought the firm would develop its own car.

However, he added: “Then Apple supposedly gave up the hardware…to develop the software to self drive cars. Apple gave that up.”
