Uber CEO Says Self-Driving Cars Are 'Student Drivers'

Uber breach exposed names, e-mails of more than 20 million users

"2018 for us is 'standing for safety.' We have a 9-1-1 button [on the Uber app] so that you can get connected the instant that you want to", Khosrowshahi said.

Uber will share the company's process for driver background checks and insurance information in that part of the app, as well as the community guidelines ― Uber's list of actions that will result in riders getting banned.

Uber is looking to be virtually a one-stop transportation shopping app, saying on Wednesday it will add new services, including car-sharing and train tickets.

Uber agrees to expanded settlement with FTC over 2016 data breach

Uber plans to add several new safety features this summer.

'The announcements that we're making are just a step along the way of making Uber fundamentally safer for drivers and riders'. This makes it easier than ever to share your trip, so loved ones can follow along and know when you've arrived.

That feature also displays real-time location from the moving vehicle, including addresses, so riders can share that information directly with the emergency operator. They can also opt to only have the feature kick in during night-time rides. We're teaming up with RapidSOS to pilot 911 integration with local emergency authorities, starting in Denver.

Steil also did not respond to request for comment Wednesday morning. "I will serve my full term as I was elected to do". The Ohio Republican, who retired from politics in 2015, once said he was "unalterably opposed" to legalising marijuana.

Evelyn Bailey, executive director of the National Association of State 911 Administrators, said Uber's two-step calling through the app may not be intuitive for people, and she would prefer they call 911 with the keypad. In the short term, this investment will create an enhanced, geographically searchable database to help emergency dispatchers more quickly connect callers to the correct 911 center.

The FTC said Uber in November 2016 learned that intruders had again accessed consumer data the company stored on its third-party cloud provider's servers but did not disclose the incident for a year. "But right now self-driving cars are learning, they are student drivers, and we need a safety driver with a student driver".

In October 2016, hackers stole names, email addresses, and phone numbers of 57 million Uber riders around the world, along with data on more than 7 million drivers, which included over 600,000 drivers' license records.

We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team, like Manchester City is doing today. Pochettino, though, insists it is "not a big deal" and the events have not been discussed since the match.

But that's exactly what the Queen did, though, when a helicopter flew over the garden in which she and Attenborough were walking. He mixes up the name tags for Andrew and Edward, identifying both as Andrew when he bends down to look.
