RT @email@example.com @MaylenaMcEvoy@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org 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
anyway the objectively correct rubric for the trolley problem is "kill the occupants of the self-driving car first" because the people who should be made to bear the heaviest weight of signing lives over to a machine are the people who funded the machine's existence
@vogon wait theres a car that will PRIORITIZE MY DEATH???
*buys 30 of them*
@vogon Legally mandating that the self-driving car kill its occupants first is likely the only way to get the companies building them to take safety seriously in any proper way.
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 yeah the fact that uber wasn't just fucking nuked from orbit for that is a real christmas (read: nakedly evil capitalist) miracle
