Hi Quincy, another great article. I read your articles pretty regularly as I’m a subscriber through Free Code Camp and get weekly updates. Anyway, one part of this article that interests me is self-driving cars and the jobs that these vehicles could potentially take away. Right now, I live in Phoenix, AZ and I know Uber is starting to implement a fleet of self-driving cars in the valley. You stated that there are currently 600,000 Uber drivers. From a business standpoint, I think it would be extremely difficult for Uber to go with completely self-driving cars. All of their drivers are contractors who own their cars or lease them from a third party. Uber would have to invest so much money to buy a fleet of self-driving cars to replace a lot of drivers. Also, do you think Uber would ever go the route of only having self-driving cars or do you think they will have self-driving cars and contractors?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
