Why Ethics Matters for Autonomous Cars

Author: Patrick Lin

Published in: Autonomes Fahren

Publisher: Springer Berlin Heidelberg

If motor vehicles are to be truly autonomous and able to operate responsibly on our roads, they will need to replicate – or do better than – the human decision-making process. But some decisions are more than just a mechanical application of traffic laws and plotting a safe path. They seem to require a sense of ethics, and this is a notoriously difficult capability to reduce into algorithms for a computer to follow.
