AI Ethics and Autonomous Vehicles – #7

How do we handle the ethical dilemmas inherent in building increasingly capable and intelligent systems? AI is all around us- likely a part of your phone, home systems, and even cars. Autonomous cars promise greater convenience, safety, and efficiency, but is our world ready to tackle the implicit ethical dilemmas? Daniel Bogdanoff, Mike Hoffman, and Brig Asay sit down to discuss.

Hosted by Daniel Bogdanoff and Mike Hoffman, EEs Talk Tech is a twice-monthly engineering podcast discussing tech trends and industry news from an electrical engineer’s perspective.

How do we handle the ethical dilemmas that arise when building increasingly capable and intelligent systems? AI is all around us- likely a part of your phone, home systems, and even cars. Autonomous cars offer greater convenience, safety, and efficiency, but is the world ready to tackle the corresponding ethical dilemmas?
