That argument leaves no place for human responsibility, and it could be extended to any number of situations.  For example, would you agree that we should ultimately disband Parliament and delegate all social & legal decision-making to an AI system?

If not, why not?

If so, what is the role of human agency all the way from self-driving cars (and pilotless passenger aircraft) to Government?

No facetious answers please...(:-)
