  • VPN services have become more affordable, making them accessible to most users.

Deep dive into the advancements in self-driving car technology and Tesla’s FSD (00:18:43)

  • Tesla's FSD (Full Self-Driving) capability is now powered by a neural network instead of C++ code.
  • The speaker believes it will take 5 to 10 years for 5 to 10% of rides globally to be automated due to various factors such as regulations, technology limitations, and competition.
  • The speaker predicts that foreign jurisdictions with top-down governments, such as the UAE, may adopt self-driving cars more quickly than democratic countries like the US and Europe.
  • The speaker estimates that if Uber currently has 1% of all global rides, it would take 5 to 10 years for self-driving cars to reach 10% of global rides, which would be 10 billion rides per year.
  • The speaker believes that the rise of self-driving cars will not eliminate Uber or other ride-sharing services but rather reduce car ownership and public transportation usage.

  • Tesla is expected to launch a car without a steering wheel or pedals on August 8th.
  • Elon Musk aims to produce 10,000 robotaxis per week, which would amount to half a million vehicles per year.
  • Tesla's robotaxis are expected to capture 1% of all rides per year, which equates to 10 billion rides.

Sunny breaks down how far we are away to different degrees of self-driving cars. (00:24:30)

  • Self-driving cars are close to replacing certain transportation systems, such as those in the tunnels of Las Vegas where they operate without human drivers.
  • A more feasible near-term application of self-driving cars is in car-sharing services, where users can drive to a designated parking lot and then take a self-driving car to popular destinations or pre-programmed areas.
  • Cities like San Francisco are already making changes to accommodate self-driving cars, such as allowing taxis to drive on Market Street.
  • San Francisco's Market Street has become less congested due to traffic flow changes that require drivers to exit the street to make drop-offs and pickups.

Wistia - Try Wistia for free (00:29:22)

  • Wistia is a powerful tool for marketers to generate leads and supercharge their video strategy.
  • It allows users to add pop-ups in videos to capture viewers' email addresses, increasing conversions for webinars and demos.

  • Custom calls to action can be added to videos to drive prospects to the next stage of the sales funnel.
  • Wistia provides advanced analytics to enhance user engagement and optimize marketing strategies.
  • Elon Musk believes that full autonomy can be achieved without LiDAR, as cameras can see further and provide a 360-degree view.
  • However, LiDAR is considered a necessary safety feature, similar to collision avoidance systems in modern planes.
  • LiDAR-equipped self-driving cars are estimated to be 2 to 10 times safer than those without LiDAR.
  • Despite advancements, there is still a possibility of fatalities in self-driving cars, although no deaths have been reported in robotaxis since the tragic Uber incident involving a distracted safety driver.

Sunny weighs the possibility of a Robotaxi death in the next couple of years. (00:33:48)

  • Sunny discusses the possibility of a fatality involving a robotaxi within the next few years in the United States.
  • He believes that there won't be a fatality in a lidar-based system within the next two years.
  • However, he thinks there could be a fatality involving a non-lidar system due to the limitations of cameras alone.
  • Interventions such as cars pulling over or causing traffic may occur in constrained environments, but fatalities are more likely to be caused by human error.
  • Sunny predicts that there will be approximately 10 entities that successfully develop self-driving technology in different jurisdictions and modalities within a similar timeframe.
  • Due to the lengthy rollout period, even for the first developers like Tesla and Waymo, there will be opportunities for several of these players to compete.
  • Uber and Lyft may have the option to purchase vehicles from vendors who want to sell into a network, rather than running their own networks.
  • Sunny believes that established automakers like Volvo and Toyota may choose to sell their self-driving vehicles into existing networks rather than operating their own.

Sunny’s theory that the leader in autonomous cars will be the one to use the Uber model. (00:37:11)

  • The Uber model for autonomous vehicles is more feasible than owning all the vehicles, as the capital expense is taken on by the vehicle owner.
  • Tesla has an advantage in the autonomous vehicle market due to its large and growing fleet of vehicles.
  • Weo, a UK-based company, has decided to put its vehicles into the Uber network, which could give them an edge in terms of network size and wait times.
  • Tesla, Weo, and a company that licenses technology from either Tesla or Weo are predicted to be the top three players in the self-driving car industry in the future.
  • The growth of ride-hailing services will come from capturing a percentage of the rides currently done by car owners driving themselves.
  • The increasing global population and the growing number of people who do not own cars present a significant market opportunity for self-driving taxis.

Jason has producer Cort jump on the pod to try out an “AI Death Calculator”. (00:46:02)

  • The YouTube video analyzes various AI demos, including the "Life to Back" AI death calculator.
  • The AI death calculator estimates life expectancy based on personal information like age, health conditions, lifestyle habits, and socioeconomic status, but its accuracy is questionable due to its lack of credibility and unclear methodology.
  • An alternative approach to estimating life expectancy could involve analyzing additional factors like screen time, physical activity, and vocal responses using AI for a more accurate assessment.
  • AI has the potential to provide personalized health advice, but the speaker questions its necessity for basic health advice since existing tools like the Apple Watch can offer similar alerts and insights.
  • The speaker emphasizes the value of AI in identifying unique cases and providing more refined health recommendations.
