Discussion: Algorithmic Morality – How to Solve Ethical Dilemmas Involving Smart Cars

Self-driving cars and connected mobility pose fundamental ethical dilemmas like how to teach AI values and how to ensure our ethical preferences can be embedded in code. The very idea of infusing technology with ethical decision making raises additional questions: Whose ethics? Who decides? etc. (e.g. the tunnel/trolley problem). Can reasonable people disagree on the right ethics for cars? How do we make sense and balance the benefits of self-driving cars, like reducing the number of cars on the road, making cities more livable, newer vehicles (with shorter replacement cycles) resulting in more safety and energy efficiency?
