Summary… * Machine-Made

#Uber, the technology company (which, because of its ride-hailing app, functions a lot like a transportation company) launched #Uber Freight on Monday night.
Fortunately, we already know a little about #Uber’s freight launch, because its first autonomous truck delivered a load of cargo in October.
The first day #Uber tested self-driving cars in San Francisco, people filmed those same cars running red lights.
In the immediate future, autonomous trucks will need human drivers and human engineers to design them—both growth opportunities.
Autonomous trucking promises safety and efficiency even as it threatens jobs and the existing economies built around shipping.

Opinion… * Man-Made
