Where is automated driving headed? In the second part of our expert video series, tech guru Peter Cochrane explains why artificial intelligence is not the biggest challenge automated driving faces.


Let’s look at the big picture! At a recent developer conference of technology company Continental in Copenhagen, 2025AD had the chance to talk to several renowned experts from various fields. We asked them what impact automated driving will have on our society, how public trust in driverless cars can be created and whether humans will still drive cars in 2050. In the first part, bestselling author Martin Ford explained why he thinks humans will continue to drive in the future. In the second part, we interview Peter Cochrane, technology consultant and former CTO of British Telecom. Stay tuned for interviews with Club of Rome Co-President Prof. Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker and artificial intelligence Oxford expert Michael Osborne in the weeks to come!
