Re: From reading elsewhere...
"You are free to use these textures" - why would you call that 'implicit' ? It may be a little on the short side, but it IS pretty explicit.

"It's very clearly true that self-driving cars are already safer than human drivers"
Citation needed. What is very clear is that AI has almost completely different failure modes from human drivers.
So of course, this test is completely flawed, as one can assume that the simulation never suffered from any of the sensor glitches / interpretation glitches that real self-driving cars do.
"I'm not sure that intelligence is needed to predict"
Not 100% of the time, no.
But it massively helps on occasion - humans can see a person approaching a pedestrian crossing and predict a sudden 90 degree turn to cross the road.
Humans can see a person at the side of the road trying to flag down a taxi and predict it doing a u-turn in front of you.
Humans can see a car in front fish-tailing round a bend, and predict black ice
And the most obvious one: humans realise that certain objects simply don't disappear into thin air, or other 'obvious' anomalies that AI simply don't care about.
From what I understand, collision avoidance on aircraft is an extension to the transponder tech that identifies them to ground-based radar. Basically, if one plane hears another transponder nearby, it tracks where that transponder claims to be, does the maths, and adjust course if the track is too close.
IIRC there was an exploit mentioned very recently that relied on this to turn another aircraft, by repeatedly lying (slightly) about the location of the attacking transponder.
Nah, Gib isn't 'fun' the way you mean it - you get such a great view wherever you are sitting in the plane, (though better on the right hand side.) Sure, it isn't anything like as straight as most airports, but the only significant danger is over-running.
"It is unclear whether three similar magnetometers would have been immune to the strong electromagnetic field generated by a passing train."
Sorry, but its perfectly obvious that ANY magnetometers would have been affected - it was the field being 'unexpected' that was the problem, not the readings, so three independent devices would NOT have helped.
