Day 2: AI and Self-Driving Cars

  • 1 “Whose Life Should Your Car Save?” by Jean-François Bonnefon, Azim Shariff, Iyad Rahwan (New York Times, 2016).

    Notes: The authors introduce challenging ethical questions related to how autonomous vehicles should handle unavoidable accidents with potentially lethal consequences. Should autonomous vehicles prioritize the safety of their passengers relative to that of pedestrians and passengers in other vehicles?
  • 2 [FOR REFERENCE] “The Social Dilemma of Autonomous Vehicles” by Jean-François Bonnefon, Azim Shariff, Iyad Rahwan (Science, 2016).

  • 3 “The Numbers Don’t Lie: Self-Driving Cars Are Getting Good” by Alex Davies (Wired, 2017).

    Notes: Davies investigates the improvement of a number of autonomous vehicles. How should we monitor the performance of autonomous vehicles during development and deployment?
  • 4 “Who’s Responsible When a Self-Driving Car Crashes?” by Corinne Iozzio (Scientific American, 2016).

    Notes: This article outlines a number of liability-related questions that are relevant to autonomous vehicles that cause an accident. Is an autonomous vehicle manufacturer responsible for damages inflicted by its products throughout their lifespan?
  • 5 “How is Mastering Autonomous Driving With Deep Learning” by Evan Ackerman (IEEE, 2017).

    Notes: Ackerman explores the challenges and promises involved in developing heavily AI-dependent autonomous vehicle platforms. What level of “black box” opacity should we accept in an autonomous vehicle’s decisionmaking process?
  • 6 “Tesla’s Self-Driving System Cleared in Deadly Crash” by Neal E. Boudette (New York Times, 2017).

    Notes: This article describes the outcome of an investigation into Tesla’s Autopilot mode following a deadly collision in May 2016. In instances where human drivers have contributed to the behavior of autonomous vehicle systems, how should liability be distributed between the human and the system?
  • 7 “Securing the Future of Driverless Cars” by Darrell West (Brookings, 2016).

    Notes: This report details some prospective benefits and challenges of autonomous vehicle deployment with a strong focus on regulatory action and the creation of standards. How could the rise of autonomous vehicles be disruptive to established legal, social, and economic institutions?
  • 8 “Autonomous Vehicles | Self-Driving Vehicles Enacted Legislation” (National Conference of State Legislatures, 2017).

    Notes: This source provides an overview of enacted legislation governing autonomous vehicle systems. How could discrepancies between states’ regulations on autonomous vehicles pose a challenge to their deployment? How should autonomous vehicle manufacturers handle different legislation across jurisdictions?
