Chanson de Roland

I am in accord with Mr. Miller that driverless, a.k.a., autonomous, vehicles are highly susceptible to being hacked for any purpose by anyone, and so they are a dangerously insecure modes of transportation, which could, among other things, also steal one's payment information.

But what I want to know is whether Uber, Google, and their ilk will treat their driverless vehicles as employees or contractors. And do they see any difference between a human driver and a driverless vehicle? I think that under the law, a driverless vehicle will be deemed to be its owner's machine for purpose of determining legal liability, but I can easily see at least Uber arguing that it's driverless vehicles would be contractors.
