Can AI Think Ethically?

Consumers will regain up to 250 million hours of free time from behind the wheel – $234 billion in public costs will be saved by reducing accidents from human error – Driverless cars can eliminate 90% of traffic fatalities ー Saving 1 million lives every year How will driverless cars determine whose life should be spared? Morality in Machines Driverless cars “must decide quickly, with incomplete information, in situations that programmers often will not have considered, using ethics that must be encoded all too literally” ー Noah J. Goodall, Senior Research at the Virginia Transportation Research Council Who Should AI Save? In a global study, most people preferred: – Swerving over staying the course – Sparing passengers over pedestrians – Saving as many lives as possible Participants were most likely to spare the lives of a child, and least likely to spare animals and criminals Minimized Harm vs. Passenger Protection – 76% of people felt driverless cars should save as many lives as possible BUT, very few were willing to buy a vehicle programmed to minimize harm – They prefer cars programmed to protect passengers at all costs – Driverless cars will save lives, but programming them to do so could slow their adoption and cost many more lives Real Life Applications Grow Even More Complex – In an accident causing injuries but not fatalities, should AI distribute injuries evenly, harming more people less severely? – Consider the likelihood and severity of potential injuries? – Take into account the quality of life effect of resulting injuries?
