A decision that has raised a few eyebrows in terms of people’s privacy and the connotation it may imply in regards to the GDPR. Didier Baichere, a lawmaker with French president Emmanuel Macron ́s party, insisted that the general public shouldn't be worried. But, should they?

It’s a rainy Thursday morning and I’ve just got into my driverless cab. I’d usually miss it, but because the cab now knows the average time I take to get ready, there is no actual way I could miss one.

During my ride, I listen to the playlist made for me specially for this Thursday. It was made instantly as I typed in the first two words that came to my mind this morning. It can be any literally any word, isn’t that fun? It knows what music I want to listen to, the length of the songs I like, the mix of genres I prefer, and it also predicts the exact moments I would get bored of the song and automatically removes it from the playlist - only to replace it with an absolute banger of a song I was thinking about giving a listen to.
