Very interesting video from TED, where Sebastian Thrun, the director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab, explains how the driverless car was built, the incredible progress it has made and why this technology is important.

Sebastian Thrun helped build Google's amazing driverless car, powered by a very personal quest to save lives and reduce traffic accidents. Jawdropping video shows the DARPA Challenge-winning car motoring through busy city traffic with no one behind the wheel, and dramatic test drive footage from TED2011 demonstrates how fast the thing can really go.
