I thought I would create a dedicated topic on this because its probably going to hit headlines longterm.
Personally I just couldn't believe it when Tesla came out with Autopilot without lidar technology which every other car marker says is crucial.
To me its insanely obvious that Elon dismissed lidar in his self driving cars because it doesn't make the car look good, its expensive and he needs everything he can to boost his stock price.
To me it was obvious he doesn't care if some people would die and I can't help but believe he knew it would be a miracle if no one dies due to his technology specifically..
When discussing these issues with other people I found my self being bitten on the neck that I am completely wrong harder than a hungry zombie could attack me.
I realized that if your got stock in Tesla or just like his stuff the bias is something that is not worth arguing against, its tribal power part of the brain https://youtu.be/S74C-XF9kYY
I was thinking about this report where a Teslas cars owner that was in Autopilot killed his own son and like a lot of Tesla incidences the bits that were supposed to record the incident were lost.

Typically Bloomberg has turned more click baity to the left side over the last year instead of being a boring business news site it has a constant stream of news articles about how reneweable energy is going to replace everything etc, what people love to hear, but what news outlet doesn't do this these days.
Thought this article below was interesting bit of what goes under the surface in the industry.

The former engineer at the center of Uber’s self-driving car legal troubles urged ex-Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick to criticize Tesla Inc.’s Elon Musk and several of his claims about autonomous vehicles.
Anthony Levandowski, whom Uber fired in May, sent a text to Kalanick in September that criticized Musk for saying Tesla was unlikely to use lidar sensors for its cars.
