Will open source do what billion dollar corporations do, only better?

There's one interesting thing here. When the self-driving experts went to Las Vegas all their vehicles could not keep in their lanes because there were blot-dots or nothing instead of broken white lines.

The open source system being developed by George Hotz and "friends" is the only one that uses AI instead of software written rules learned how to solve the problem in one day. All the others threw vast resources at the problem and took many months to get a test case working. Interesting.

very close minded. i watched the video, we would all be better off if more were like him. Smart, not greedy, sees the big picture, willing to work with others, and most important is he knows someone can and wants someone to do things better. Not an ego maniac like Musk who thinks he is the best.

We all have opinions, not arguing, but this guy seems to be alright and will untimely be helpful to us and tech, so why not respect instead of push away?
