Self-driving cars are hard, even when you plan for things like pedestrians not in crosswalks.
@TEDTalks excerpt from my book
 https://ideas.ted.com/many-of-us-thought-wed-be-riding-in-ai-driven-cars-by-now-what-happened/ 

It's tricky to plan for everything that can happen on the road.

"If it's not at a crosswalk, it's not a pedestrian" is a heck of a thing to tell a self-driving car though

AIs are not smart enough to understand what you're really asking for - and that can often lead to trouble.
