April Newsletter: Are Driverless Cars Drones of a Different Kind?

Can humans talk intelligently about driverless cars without a robot on the panel?

Find out when A2Ethics and the Michigan Ethics Bowl Team host a public discussion.
A few high and low road questions:

  • Given global climate change, should we be favoring technologies that could make driving both massively easier and cheaper? 

  • Who ought to own driverless car data? What are the potential privacy issues?

  • Who should be held morally responsible for potential accidents?

  • What are the ethical issues presented by a driverless car company promoting a Super Bowl ad for "the most ethical algorithms?"

Power up your ethical algorithms and bring your autonomous questions:

U-M senior Gabe Kahn has been a great addition to our team. 
He is an economics and sociology major from Austin, Texas. Because of his contributions and talents, we would like Gabe to stay. But Washington, DC beckons. We hope he will start our first spinoff: DCEthics. Thanks for all your work Gabe!
