Could someone who understands this space weigh in on how technically interesting this is? (Or isn't?) In particular, their research paper on "End to End Learning for Self-Driving Cars"[1] seems to yield a system that requires an unacceptable amount of manual intervention: in their test drive, they achieve autonomous driving only 98% of the time. But I have no real expertise in this space; perhaps this result is impressive because it was end-to-end or because of the relatively little training? Is such a system going to be sufficiently safe to be used in fully autonomous systems? Or is NVIDIA's PX 2 interesting but not at all for the way it was used in their demonstration system?
