laptop computer with wheels. they're always upgrading the software gifg you these cool new features. like last year they made it possible to name your tesla. i named mine vingalot and if you understand that reference, i'm sorry you also had such a tough time in middle school. and one of the coolest things about the tesla software updates is they happen automatically overnight through the car's wifi system. you turn it on in the morning and the screen tells you all the new stuff it can do. like new and a half gaition features, or updated menus. there are so many sudden changes overnight with your car. it's like your car is going through peub ert.-- pu berty which might be why sometimes it locks itself in the garage an blasts mus you can at itself. yesterday, this is true, there was a particularly exciting upgrade. >> this morning tesla owner s owners are waking up to a new feature, autopilots. >> it essentially allows you to do sem aye autonomous driving
when you're behind the wheel. >> stephen: that's right, teslar cars could drive themselves. finally a high-tech alternative to jamming a brick on the gas pedestrian all and jumping in the backseat. i had to do that for too long. and people have been posting individual ya with-- videos of the self-driving feature all over the internet. >> the car is watching, it sees, oh my gosh. oh pie gosh, this is so-- i'm not touching it at all. and it's driving. oh pie gosh, it's changing lanes. oh my gosh, it's changing lanes on its own. >> stephen: yes, a tesla can no. although i had a pinto that used to do that too. (laughter) true. my first car. that is my first car. now i can see request some people out there wouldn't want a car that drives it self. some people don't want to lose what they call the joy of the road. that uniquely american feeling of independence when you got one
arm out the window, you know, the other hand on your slurpee. your knee on the wheel right here with your eyes scanning the horizon for cheap fireworks. but as a man, as a man who drives into manhattan every day, let me tell you, there is no joy of the road. my commute is more like cormack mccarthy's the road. many times while i was stuck in the lincoln tunnel i have considered going can i balance. that is why i never-- cannibal that is why i never car pool, not any more. (applause) so personally can i not wait for self-driving cars. no more road rage. just kick back and relaxment you can watch movies. you can take a nap. and if you really miss driving you can always play mario cart. now while you don't have to keep your eyes on the road, legally
you are required to keep one hand on the wheel at all times. which is fine because you are really only need one hand to enjoy all the porn you'll be watching. now most importantly,-- (applause). >> stephen: i don't know whatth. no proof he's watching porn. importantly, self-driving cars will be a lot safer. in fact, some researchers estimate they could save 300,000 lives per decade. yes, it will definitely save lives. not only will the cars never get distracted reducing fatal accidents but my tesla isn't going to suddenly yank the wheel into a wendy's at midnight to order a bigie fries. beside, this technology is self-driving towards us whether we like it or not. i've had 6 billionaires on this show so far and three of them are working on self-driving cars. and later tonight i've got my 7th billionaire, oprah winfrey, i'm going to ask her.
i'm going to ask her if she is working on one too. because if so, you get a self-driving car, you get a self-driving car, you get a self-driving car! (cheers and applause) whooo! whooo! yes! z i assume. it would be disa poanting if not. of course the most famous name in self-driving cars is goggle. they've already got proto types of their goggle cars driving all over the place and they think you'll have one soon. just listen to the director of their auto auto program. >> how soon can we bring it out? well, it's hard to say because it's a really complicated problem. but these are my two boys, my oldest son is 11. and that means in four and a half years, he's going to be able to get his drivers' license. my team and i are committed to making sure that doesn't happen.
>> stephen: wow.that is uncool,. what else are you working on, self-drinking alcohol and pants that dry hump themselves? whatever. point is, i'm on board with the self-driving thing. i'm ready to hit the car pool lane with my two buddies, george rr and jack. we'll be right back with oprah winfrey.

congratulations. >> stephen: thank you, thankyou. thank you very much. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: thank you very much. >> that was a high bar. >> stephen: well, thank you fori needed. oprah winfrey, everybody. >> that is a high bar. >> stephen: i want to talk abou. the series is called belief. >> yes. >> stephen: it's going to be on. >> yes, starting sunday. >> stephen: it's about a variety mean to individual people's lives. how they have changed their lives, to make their lives better and how people use them to seek love, friendship, peace. why did you want to make this series now? >> well, it's actually bigger than religion. it's about the heart of people opening up and yerning for something that is deeper and greater. and so some of the people are religious and some of the people are just seeking in their own way. cuz in one part of the series we had this wonderful rock climber named alex who says he is an
atheist and doesn't believe in any diety but his devotion and his passion for life is something that you see threaded through all of the stories. so i wanted to do this because in one of my darkest moments when i was forming the network and i would run into lorne michaels who said oh, baby, you're going to be in for a huge learning curve, it will take you five years, it will be harder than anything you have ever done. i said i'll be okay. and then learned that you know, developing a network from scratch is harder than i thought, imagined. so when i was in the heat of the crisis, when everybody was saying i done know, you should have kept your day job. i can see that you were some of the people saying that. thank you, all, frenlds. but anyway, when people were saying those kinds of things, i tend to go-- when you are challenged in life, i find that going deeper inside yourself, to
ask the question, what do i really want. why did i really make this decision. and i had seen a planet earth done by the great discovery channel. and i wanted to create something that spoke to the spirit of us all. >> stephen: that's what-- that'. st like. >> well, i will tell you what. we'll get into the details and some of the stories that meant the most to you. we'll be right back. we'll continue talking about the things most important in the world to oprah winfrey. (cheers and applause)
. >> stephen: welcome back.we're . now were talking before about the series called belief. , is there a difference for you between faith and belief. >> yeah, there is. because there are a lot of people who don't think that they are faithful people but have beliefs. you know, you can to the be in the world without believing in something. even if you don't call it a diety. so there are people who believe in working hard and strifing for their best, and, but don't call that, don't have a necessary religious belief. and faith is very different, i think. faith is knowing that no matter what, you are going to be okay. and i've always been a part of that faithful. i used to be a little preparer. >> stephen: how little, like ho? >> i'm talking like seven, eight, nine, 12, 15. and then, yeah, when i was in third grade people used to call me, here come that preparer girl
