Automakers took center stage at the 1964 New York World”™s Fair. General Motors exhibited the Firebird IV concept car, which, as the company explained, “anticipates the day when the family will drive to the super-highway, turn over the car”™s controls to an automatic, programmed guidance system and travel in comfort and absolute safety at more than twice the speed possible on today”™s expressways.”
Interesting piece by McKinsey on the future of the auto industry.
I also liked this observation:
Today”™s average high-end car has roughly seven times more code than a Boeing 787.
