Well here's where it all starts for Truck drivers losing their jobs in The USA! They say 500 new jobs, in the beginning, put how many driver's jobs it destroys in the future is something they will not tell you about.

TuSimple has deployed autonomous trucks on commercial runs between Tucson and Phoenix in Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada, as the company prepares to expand its operations in the world?s two largest economies by next year.

TuSimple is on a mission to create the world?s safest self-driving semi-truck perception system. TuSimple?s camera-centric system has a vision range of 1,000 meters?farther than any other perception system today?and can ?see? 360 degrees around for a pixel-level interpretation of the visible environment, enabling the vehicle to locate itself within four inches of the road at all times.

In 2017, TuSimple secured $23 million in a Series B funding round, and the company raised an additional $55 million of Series C funding in November of 2017.

?Arizona has actively supported the research and development of autonomous vehicles, and we are pleased to be expanding our footprint in the state,? said Xiaodi Hou, CTO and Co-Founder of TuSimple. ?We thank Governor Ducey and our community partners for their generous support.?

    What? Do you mean dealing with The Red Chinese while pretending to protect American Jobs? We can make the most sophisticated weapons but we can't design or build our own Transportation system without China?

    Yep and Republicans base on saving jobs for the working class is a lie. There will be no work when A.I. machines take over 75% of manufacturing and transportation jobs.

    President Trump is working for trade imbalance not new jobs for the working class,they won't need the working class before long.

    They allow Communist China to make and manufacture A.I. here while saying they want to make The USA great again? It's a propaganda slogan, don't believe it.

    China is home to some of the world's largest technology companies such as Alibaba and Baidu, who are all focusing on developing their AI capabilities.

    For example, Baidu has an AI research lab in Silicon Valley and is exploring areas like driverless cars. Meanwhile, Alibaba's cloud division is focusing heavily on using AI in areas such as shopping to healthcare.
    AI 'pain' to come

    But the promise of AI also comes with warnings from top technologists about the potential impact on jobs and society as a whole. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, for example, has warned that AI could mean that a policy of universal basic income might have to be employed.

    China's top tech CEOs have also sounded the warning alarm.

    Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma warned recently that society could see decades of pain thanks to the disruption caused by the internet and new technologies to different areas of the economy.
