If you’re thinking about the Tesla crash and autonomous driving, Alex Roy wrote an excellent article (per usual) about his thoughts on the future of autonomous driving and retaining an ability for the systems to revert to human control in anomalous situations. I highly suggest reading it if you have the time or even if you don’t have the time, along with the article on Air France flight 447 that he links to. That one is written by William Langewiesche, whom I hold to be the most excellent and entertaining aviation journalist, when he has written on the subject.
