The Ethical Dilemma of Self-Driving Cars

Curriculum developed by Patrick Lin with video, quiz and discussion questions. Built on the TED-Ed open platform. 

Self-driving cars are already cruising the streets today. And while these cars will ultimately be safer and cleaner than their manual counterparts, they can’t completely avoid accidents altogether. How should the car be programmed if it encounters an unavoidable accident? Patrick Lin navigates the murky ethics of self-driving cars.
