The idea that you could react faster or make a better critical decision than the computer is sort of funny actually.
Your reaction to this article is also sort funny. The situation you describe, with the computer making faster and better decisions, is what you expect to happen. A desirable output. And most of the time this is what WILL happen.
However, in liability issues we are not interested in the desired result. We are interested in failures. When things go wrong in whatever imaginable or unimaginable way. As this Volvo CTO seems to be more aware of than you, this WILL happen some day. That will most likely be the same day that the GP's prediction comes true, and Volco announces it doesn't count as a flaw in their system.
