I don’t care about self-driving car ethics

April 7, 2018

My newest Bloomberg View piece just came out:

Don’t Worry About the Ethics of Self-Driving Cars

Road deaths create an incentive to care that is woefully lacking elsewhere.

    A self-driving car is a lot more than algorithms, and now, a car is a very increasingly complex machine (and it weighs tons)..
    There are apple algorithms and orange algorithms and purple ones, etc. – embedded in soft systems and hard systems. Poorly designed and very poorly implemented ones.
    Cathy, sort of lump them together.
    BTW – as an electrical engineer who has worked with complex hardware, and software systems – my view is self-driving cars have a long way to go before they can be deemed safe.
    Better than humans – not now and it will be a long time in coming.
    And,humans should be encouraged and incentified to take safe-driving courses. Would save a lot of lives and injuries and disabled vehicles..
