  • Technology can always fail, but so can humans
    13 Oct 2017

    As car accidents go, it wasn't much: Twelve minutes before noon on a cool June day, a Chevrolet Bolt was rear ended as it crawled from a stop light in downtown San Francisco. What made this fender bender noteworthy was the Bolt's driver: a computer.  In California, where companies such as Cruise Automation Inc. and Waymo are ramping up testing of self-driving cars, human drivers keep running into them in low-speed fender benders. The run-ins highlight an emerging culture clash between humans who often treat traffic laws as guidelines and autonomous cars that refuse to roll th...

    24 Aug 2017

    U.S. made a proposal to South Korea to revise the five-year-old trade deal, but the country rejected it.
