RT @firstname.lastname@example.org @MaylenaMcEvoy@twitter.com @email@example.com which ultimately means that, if these "moral algorithms" were deployed, this survey itself can create a perverse incentive for car manufacturers to come up with some proxy for "doctorness" or "criminalness" even if it's based on, like, face recognition tied to linkedin
and given the racial biases in criminal justice, it's entirely possible that, say [thinks for a second about which car company is likeliest to do something completely amoral] a tesla/uber joint venture could use it to argue "but customers WANT racist cars"
oh and a reminder that the only person killed by an AV so far was a homeless jaywalker, a bone-stock car of the same model would've spared her, nobody ever faced jail time for it, and the company that did it is applying for permission to deploy AVs again https://www.engadget.com/2018/11/03/uber-permission-test-self-driving-cars/
@vogon wait theres a car that will PRIORITIZE MY DEATH???
*buys 30 of them*
@vogon yeah the fact that uber wasn't just fucking nuked from orbit for that is a real christmas (read: nakedly evil capitalist) miracle
@vogon I've cried explaining this to Ted: "a currently-unemployed childless writer without a Masters degree is definitely dying first, especially if life-or-death is being judged by a techbro?"
Germany was prescient and made the Which Driver Dies algorithm illegal right away, as I understand it, but that definitely won't be happening here
