Waymo Gambles Lives with Unsupervised Self-Driving Cars

When I worked at Facebook, we had a saying: “this journey is only 1% finished.” This was meant somewhat literally in that when we had “only” 100 million users: we were only 1% of the way to having everyone who will be on Earth in 100 years (about 10 billion). It helped remind us that even with all our success, we were only just starting the journey and there were literally billions more people left to reach.

Waymo is not far ahead of everyone, nor almost done solving driverless. Waymo is in fact less than 1% finished.
