Beyond the Trolley Problem: Why Vehicles Must Be Ethical

Kurt Gray
Associate Professor, UNC Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, UNC-CH

A host of ethical concerns, from human-machine interfacing to data collection, attend vehicle automation. In this final session, Dr. Kurt Gray will discuss these implications and the need for ethical guidance in automation.
