I don't know about having a robot boss. Pretty sure I wouldn't like that one. As to the Google Car, there has been many totally automated car tests and many total successes. There has also been many totally automated flights without incident. I'm not arguing for or against total automation, but I think technology is a wonderful thing and a very promising tool for world peace and understanding. Every thing has limits and I think it's too early to say whether or not automation has or could take the place of human intuition.
As for me, a dedicated petrol head, I think I would get into an automated plane before I'd get into an automated car,
