Self-driving Uber kills Arizona woman in first fatal crash involving pedestrian | Technology | The Guardian
"An autonomous Uber car killed a woman in the street in Arizona, police said, in what appears to be the first reported fatal crash involving a self-driving vehicle and a pedestrian in the US.

Tempe police said the self-driving car was in autonomous mode at the time of the crash and that the vehicle hit a woman, who was walking outside of the crosswalk and later died at a hospital. There was a vehicle operator inside the car at the time of the crash.

Uber said in a statement on Twitter: “Our hearts go out to the victim’s family. We are fully cooperating with local authorities in their investigation of this incident.” A spokesman declined to comment further on the crash."

This is really worrying. Seems that the population of a city in the US have been opted into a trial of experimental life-threatening technology probably without their knowledge or explicit consent.

Blood on the hands of both Uber and the Governor of Arizona here.

I don't think there's any way to make a probabilistic learning algorithm safely deal with every eventuality that may occur on a public road on a real world city. I don't know how many more people need to be murdered by irresponsible programmers before Uber admit that.
