Machine Morals, Moral Machines?


Machine Morals, Moral Machines?

from ABC radio’s Big Ideas “As machines become smarter and more autonomous, they are bound to end up making life-or-death decisions in unpredictable situations. And that will present them with ethical dilemmas. Should a driverless car swerve to avoid pedestrians if that means hitting other vehicles or endangering its occupants? So do we need moral for machines to enable them to make such choices appropriately—in other words, to tell right from wrong?”
