BOOK CLUB Driven: The Race to Create the Autonomous Car by Alex Davies, Tristan Morris, et al.

Alex Davies tells the “illuminating and important narrative” (Steven Levy, author of Facebook: The Inside Story) of the quest to develop driverless cars - and the fierce competition between Google, Uber, and other companies in a race to revolutionize our lives. Alex Davies profiles the industry’s key players from the early enthusiasm of the DARPA days to their growing awareness that while this spin on artificial intelligence isn’t yet ready for rush-hour traffic, driverless cars are poised to remake how the world moves.
