GT Seminar I: The Ethics of Autonomous Cars

Write a response to the article we read in class. Discuss your opinions on the first scenario (SUV vs Mini Cooper) and the second scenario (motorcyclists with helmet vs without helmet). 

Then, discuss whether or not you think the idea to have the car make decisions through a random-number generator is a good one or not. 

Finally, answer commenter Alexander Karasulas's question:  If the driver is not making control decisions, should the driver be responsible for any outcomes at all? Why or why not?

This is an Assessment grade.
