From smartphones and coffee machines to aeroplanes and medical diagnostics we daily embrace and rely on science and technology. However. despite it being quicker and more accurate, 72 percent of US drivers would not trust self-parking vehicle technology. This might be a reaction to a perceived slight on our self-esteem of being capable drivers, with the passage of time leading to increased adoption and acceptance. Yet on the wider topic, there is concern about machines and artificial intelligence taking over the world from mere humans. Perhaps like with driving we just fear someone or something else doing a better job than we ever could? Hopefully as the late Terry Pratchett wrote in Good Omens: The future came and went in the mildly discouraging way that futures do.
