TNT 1754: Self-Driving Husband
If you live in the Phoenix area you can now apply to be part of a self-driving car testing program from Waymo, which was formerly Google's driverless car program and is now under the Alphabet umbrella. Testers have access to a driverless car with a test driver whenever they want, wherever they are within an area twice the size of San Francisco. Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia, is tackling that pesky thing called fake news by creating Wikitribune, a crowdfunded news publication with content chosen, fact checked, and written up by unpaid community members and journalists Uber says they'll be taking ride-hailing to the skies by 2020. That's when the company says they'll have their first public demo of a fleet of electric planes that you can hail with an app. We also discuss how Netflix is getting its content to China and how the TED conference is being overrun by robots. Plus, Danny Sullivan from Search Engine Land joins us to talk about Google's Project Owl that aims to clean up problematic search results.
