The Trough of Disillusionment

Maybe self-driving cars will go through a trough of disillusionment, but that hardly seems guaranteed.

It is guaranteed, in my opinion. Deep learning systems, the core technology used in self-driving vehicles, have the same fundamental limitations and propensity to catastrophic failure as the the rule-based systems of the last century. In fact, deep neural nets are rule-based expert systems, loud denials notwithstanding.
