MIT Technology Review: Should a self-driving car kill the baby or the grandma? Depends on where you’re from

MIT Technology Review: Should a self-driving car kill the baby or the grandma? Depends on where you’re from. “In 2014 researchers at the MIT Media Lab designed an experiment called Moral Machine. The idea was to create a game-like platform that would crowdsource people’s decisions on how self-driving cars should prioritize lives in different variations of the ‘trolley problem.’ In the process, the data generated would provide insight into the collective ethical priorities of different cultures. The researchers never predicted the experiment’s viral reception.”
