Newt Gingrich sees glimpse of the future during visit to Carnegie Mellon University

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said he saw a glimpse of the future when he recently visited Carnegie Mellon University…

Gingrich wrote that safety needs to be a top priority and that we must “learn from and continuously work to prevent” crashes like what happened in Tempe, Arizona, where a self-driving Uber hit and killer a woman walking her bike across a street.

“It is also clear that we have to invest heavily in artificial intelligence if we are going to maintain our competitive and national security advantages in the face of massive Chinese investment in the artificial intelligence field,” Gingrich wrote. “We already know Chinese companies are working to build a huge fleet of self-driving vehicles. You can bet they will use and apply everything they learn in this endeavor in their military programs.”
