Exploring Ethics—Self-Driving Cars


Mohan Trivedi is a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California at San Diego and founding director of the Computer Vision and Robotics Research Laboratory, as well as the Laboratory for Intelligent and Safe Automobiles (LISA) at the University of California San Diego.

He will raise issues about the roles of technologists, manufacturers, business leaders, policy makers, regulators as well as drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other road users who will be impacted by artificially intelligent vehicles. Innovative thinking is required not only in the making of these artificially intelligent vehicles, but also in properly framing and resolving challenging issues about the appropriate and ethically acceptable behaviors and use of these vehicles.
