There you go again, making claims that have been refuted before, but pretending they weren't. Google backgammon computer algorithms, which beat the best humans through superior strategy they learned on their own, if you have any interest in learning about this subject rather than repeating false claims time and again. And before you ask how backgammon strategy is applicable to that (not that this question is necessary to defeat such a false blanket claim), backgammon algorithm were developed with artificial neural networks, which were also employed in coming up with computer algorithms that could fly planes on their own.
Ah! Backgammon, that 3 dimensional game where the shape and dimensions of the board and some of the rules change every few seconds. I am not disputing that computers can adapt and change their own algorithms within a fixed set of positions and rules, and you keep offering examples of them being able to do that, and once again I say that there are no lives at risk if the computer gets it wrong. To be self adaptive the program has to run many times, remember the condequences of the various plays it makes and use them for future reference - correct? The program learns by experience, but it is not actually "thinking", it wouldn't suddenly stop and decide that the game would be more satisfying if it altered a few of the rules, it wouldn't see the need to, why would it, it knows exactly what it is doing. If the world's best computer was driving a car, would it be able to change its own rules instantaneously in order to deal with a problem it had never encountered, would it stop to think about it until sometime after the accident had happened, or would it go beserk like the robot in the Seimens factory when it found that all its sensors were reading 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0; and it had no idea what that was or more importantly, what to do about it - You see, nobody had told it that might happen, the programmers never took it into consideration, after all, why would that happen?
As I said before, I will happily accept autonomous vehicles driving down my road when the manufacturers accept a strict liability clause in the sales contract - As far as I am concerned, they can't assert that their self-driving cars can do it better than us and then, when there is an accident, dump the blame on the owner of the vehicle. I am waiting for the first court case involving the self-parking Fords with interest, it will inform us as to the future legal implications and driver liabilities of autonomous cars.
