    Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Thunderhill Raceway for the first Autonomous Track Day. We caught up with Silicon Valley entrepreneur and event organizer Joshua Schachter to find out if driverless cars will ever race themselves.

    "That would be fun," said Schachter. "We have to make sure it's interesting. If it's just robots driving perfectly, that's not exciting."

    "I think we'll figure it out."

    We also check in with George Hotz, originally famous for unlocking the iPhone and now builder of driverless cars. Hotz shared his story of how he got involved with autonomous technology through a disagreement with Elon Musk.

    "Elon Musk was originally going to give me money to build this for his Tesla," said Hotz of his driverless car. "Elon changed the deal at the last minute, said no...[I] bought this car, made it drive itself."
