Who Makes Better Decisions:  Humans or Robots

Who Makes Better Decisions: Humans or Robots

In cities, we depend on apps such as Waze and Google Maps to help us discover new places. At home, we use these apps to beat the rush-hour traffic and find the quickest routes to school, work, and other places we regularly frequent. But sometimes, we doubt a suggested turn; we question a re-route; we suspect an arrival-time estimate.
