We tend to think we’re better than some piece of software, despite the fact that 80% to 90% of crashes are due to human error
The intersection of the future has no stoplight—just a very, very intelligent algorithm.
Slot-based network design has already populated other industries. A great example comes from airlines,—instead of letting people line up all at once to board a plane, the airline divides people into six batches, each of which boards at an explicit time.
it’s actually among the fastest ways to board a plane. It’s a form of “slot-based” scheduling, which is already in use everywhere from air traffic control to business management. The basic idea is that actors in a system are grouped into batches, and the speed of their movement is carefully controlled to move them more efficiently through a space.
