More PC madness. I am particularity amused by the term 'She' as a supposedly 'gender neutral' term I see a lot (especially from 'woken' bun-heads from the US west coast). Hilarious. If only they gave the same deep focus on real diversity and more importantly that the coded system actually works at the end.

Developers renew push to get rid of objectionable code terms to make 'the world a tiny bit more welcoming'

Well said. Sorry Oliver but your comment is idiotic - if I buy technology at a huge premium because it promises me things I expect it deliver said things. This is Human nature. You can call it stupidity if you like but if so take a look in the mirror and see a stupid person. If this AI does not work it should be scrapped. End of story.
Absolutely wrong! The car can either drive itself or it cannot. My opinion is that AI will NEVER be able to drive a car - self driving can only be done by trains running on a track physically separated from people like those at airports. End of Story. There will never be safe self-driving cars (unless they are in tubes or on tracks).
Re: Wrong argument
So what! Why should any company (US or otherwise based) pay bullshit tax from residents who buy stuff from their country-independent internet channel? Get lost socialist French frogs IMO and f**k off socialist governments of muck - the people are freed of the muck they stand on when they buy from a non-government-organisation (NGO). What will be the 'tax system' when the Human race leaves this shitty planet and it's monkey laws?
I don't. She is a clueless child with empty words that ignore the gravity of any solution that would take her seriously (e.g. the destruction of the World Economy, etc.). I mock her abusive parents for subjecting this child to public puppetry (and she is also on the autistic spectrum so easy prey to manipulators). I find it astonishing that people cannot see the clear parallels with Islamic radicalisation - brainwashed kids being used by dark forces.
A solution requires a problem. Is this a problem? As mentioned elsewhere females are not choosing (note that word carefully!) to do STEM and are choosing (note that word carefully!) to move from technical work (with little social interaction) to analysis/management work (with lots of social interaction). I don't think we need any solution where there is no problem in the first place.

Re: "We have to look at the clouds, no-one's allowed to look for silver linings these days."
Well sadly I can't see a single benefit. I'm Irish but lived in England for nearly 10 very very happy years and both of my kids were born in England so I have great love for the green and pleasant land. The unfortunate fact is brexit was created by the have-nots of the UK (mainly England) so those people don't give a rat's about the implications because they had no buy-in anyway. I do agree that given this context leadership is desperately needed but not there which is a real shame. However, I for one have great confidence in the British people and I think the *actual* people will pull through in the end, even with appalling leadership.
Re: World's cleverest company states the obvious
Ha I totally agree - I'm 25 years in IT and this is such a hopelessly obvious conclusion - reminds me of 'The Spy who shagged me' where Dr Evil (who went to evil college you know!) came up with that such complex and obvious solution to kill our hero that we knew for sure it would end in FAIL - wonder how much shareholder value Google squanders on such lame nonsense?
