What's to understand? Watson is fed data - tremendous amounts of data. It can't manufacture data from thin air. You're even saying it "...like the entire contents of Wikipedia, The Bible and numerous other references..."

Anyway, this thread is about autonomous cars - Watson answers questions. Autonomous vehicles aren't yet reliable. Will we have autonomous vehicles in the future? Certainly.

The same basic technology that allows Watson to arrive at an answer will allow cars to make decisions.

Many languages use the same or similar syntax, in my case PHP.

Hey ya'll don't get me wrong...

I'd love to to own a self-driving vehicle, I drive between Las Vegas, San Diego, San Antonio and Staten Island NY.

It would be awesome to get in the car with a book/laptop and the cooler, take a nap and really relax during the drive.

I'd buy one just to relieve the tedium. Drive cross country and play cards with the wife. Oh yeah!

I believe (someday) that all cars will talk to each other so they know where all other vehicles are located around them. Even if the cars are not autonomous. This will allow collision avoidance to be very accurate even with cars being driven by humans.

Once this level of communication is reached they will be very safe. As for the rolling boulder... I fly in planes, stand outside in thunderstorms, watch tornadoes when they go by, and play with electricity.

I'm not too worried about some random boulder.
