Gary Johnson comments on the Koch Brothers. <PS, you're allowed to laugh at Gary's comments too> <LMFAO> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ao0Z_J4yzes
The thing that rednecks like about Trump is that he lies properly. He just tells his lie, believes in it and moves on. Johnson on the other hand is useless, totally embarrassed about being part of the big lie.
These Libertarian fans are just talkers and rednecks who don't have a political clue, desperate for a 3rd option, and determined not to move LEFT, the only direction that'll help them.
The company will deploy around 100 modified Volvo XC90s outfitted with self-driving equipment. Each vehicle will be staffed by one engineer, who can take the wheel as/when needed, and a co-pilot to observe and take notes. There will also be a “liquid-cooled” computer sitting in the trunk recording trip and map data.
That will mean that regular Uber punters in the city have a chance of getting an autonomous vehicle for their ride — their trip will be free if so.

While the slowest, it was the robot that most people preferred.
But here's where it gets interesting. At the end of the exchange, the robot would ask for a job. Some participants were reluctant to say no -- even if they preferred the silent, more efficient robot -- because they thought it would upset the machine. "It felt appropriate to say no, but I felt really bad saying it," one of the test participants said. "When the face was really sad, I felt even worse. I felt bad because the robot was trying to do its job."

My prediction for Google's mysterious new Fuchsia OS program isn't one that I've seen suggested yet, although given the nature of ideas I'm pretty sure this has occurred to a great many people already. The framework certainly has.
I don't buy the Internet of Things angle, for which we have Brillo, nor the Android + Chrome merger angle, for which we already have Android Apps hitting Chrome this year, nor the VR OS for which we've already seen Daydream and other approaches.
The only option that makes sense to me is that Fuchsia is the predictable evolution for Google Assistant into a stand alone AI OS. We've seen Google Now develop into Google Now on Tap and this year into Google Assistant, which will play an ever bigger role in the latest iteration of Android N as well as power key messaging apps such as Allo and others to start with. Then combine this with App Streaming that Google is playing with and this year's release of Instant Apps, and you basically have embryonic capabilities for genuinely app-less functions on demand with different chunks of apps or core capabilities available on demand as needed and depending on the context of the situation.
I'll go out and "predict" that Fuchsia will be an "app-less" AI OS, an ever-more-capable Google Assistant that you interact with to get anything and everything done.
