Uber's CEO, Travis Kalanick, recently discussed the importance of driverless cars on Stephen Colbert's The Late Show. Responding to worries that vehicles on autopilot would put drivers out of business, he said "[Google, Tesla, and Apple are] doing the driverless thing. This is gonna be the world. And so the question for a tech company is, 'Do you want to be part of the future? Or do you want to resist the future?' And we feel that in many ways we want to not be like the taxi industry before us."
