“Los hombres son tan necesariamente locos, que sería estar loco de alguna otra manera el no estar loco.” (Pascal)
The ethical dilemma of self-driving cars – Patrick Lin
¿Tendremos que programar computadora asesinas?
As artificial intelligence advances, it may very well use the programmable ethics settings found in self-driving cars as a platform to build upon
If we determined today that favoring “quantity of lives” is the sole rule to follow for self-driving cars, for example, a much more developed, Skynet-esque AI of the future might calculate that citizens of industrialized countries are making the world uninhabitable for a majority of people and their many generations of offspring. Ethically, that AI could justify eradicating a large swath of the population so that an even larger percent can live.
