Nathan Äschbacher talks about how Chaos Engineering and chaos experiments on the complex data, interfaces, and algorithms used in autonomous vehicles should be a minimum requirement in validating operational safety. Äschbacher thinks we should shift towards working with chaos instead of against it, in order to build safe, reliable, and increasingly deterministic complex systems.
