Co-Director highlights biggest obstacle to widespread adoption of self-driving technology

Politico recently discussed the future of self-driving cars and the acceleration of technological advances. Ryan Calo, co-director of the Tech Policy Lab and Law professor at the University of Washington pointed out that “The biggest roadblock is not​ law. The federal government and several states have given the green light. The biggest roadblock is that robotics is hard.”

Many other professors and researchers were interviewed in this piece, discussing the federal, political, and even social sides of technology that will interact in the future.
