What is their point? They could put a brick on the gas pedal of a Mack truck too. Anybody can do stupid shit with all kinds of machines. You can kill a baby by putting it into a Maytag dryer for two minutes. You can *easily* duct tape a chainsaw kickback guard in place and chainsaw your skull open on the first good knot you hit. Why do people occasionally start apparently mumbling something about Teslas somehow being different from any other machine that even a drunken hillbilly can figure out ways to circumvent safeguards on?
If their point is that using weighted neural nets that are virtually impossible to debug to direct millions of 2-ton projectiles at 60 miles per hour on public roads is completely unacceptable to many taxpaying users of those same roads, then they should come out and say that specifically. Nibbling at the edges of that with safeguard circumvention nonsense (which will always be possible with any kind of machinery and any level of safeguarding and is unrelated to the what-we-do-with-neural-nets issue.)
