Flying cars are a phenomenon we only see in sci-fi movies, but cars without a driver? They’ll soon be showing up to pick you up! The arrival of self-driving cars brings a new reality for driving services like Uber.  Passengers will have to rate not a human driver, but the AI(artificial intelligence) driving the car itself. A driverless Uber fleet is already underway, though it’s hit a few roadblocks.
