Episode 46: Self-Driving Cars
There will come a time in the not-too-distant future when cars will drive themselves. You read that right. Cars will be zipping around with no one behind the wheel. There may not even be a wheel for that matter.
With companies like Google, Tesla, and probably Apple (unconfirmed) in the mix its no doubt the self driving car will soon be a reality. But is it one we are prepared to accept?
There are many pros and cons to the idea not the least of which is figuring out “algorithmic morality.” It’s an odd term but basically it means programming the car to choose between killing others or sacrificing the passenger. A choice not so easily decided. Especially if you’re going to be riding in one.
But the future is rushing in regardless. Listen in as we weigh the idea and chip in our two cents on where this technology is headed. Plus we discuss the benefits and drawbacks likely to arise.
