Maria Konnikova, The Hazards of Going on Autopilot, New Yorker, September 4, 2014.  Useful to look at again in light of announcement about driverless cars.  Biggest issue is that people become inattentive, don't respond quickly or correctly when a problem comes up.

"...Automation hadn’t reduced human errors on the whole; it had simply changed their form."
