Autonomous driving is becoming more and more a reality. In an estimated 5-10 years, more and more driving functions will be controlled by an AI and we will sit back and read a newspaper. If we want to trust technology. There are still some problems and questions to be resolved. Among other things, the question of how the AI should decide in the event of an impending and unavoidable collision in order to save as many lives as possible. But what life is worth living?
The AI must therefore be programmed with a kind of morality. To do this, MIT has put a moral machine online to understand how we humans would decide.
Would you rather die a woman or a man? Old or young? And what about social status: law-abiding citizens or rather the criminal?
Test it yourself:
