The Way We Talk About Autonomy Is a Lie, and That’s Dangerous

"Bryant Walker Smith, an assistant professor in the University of South Carolina School of Law and an affiliate scholar at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, says "the levels of automation were described as a promise by the automaker to the user: 'We are promising that our system will do this under these conditions.’ So, part of this will be clearly communicating those capabilities and those limitations to the user, not just once, not just in an owner’s manual, but in real time, as the systems are operating.”"
