An era of technological and ethical unknowns

chalkboard

Taken from an article on TechCrunch, regarding the ethics when designing new technologies:

Consumers would prefer to minimize the number of overall casualties in a car accident, yet are unwilling to purchase a self-driving car if it is not self-protective. Of course, the ideal option is for companies to develop algorithms that bypass this possibility entirely, but this may not always be an option. What is clear, however, is that such ethical quandaries must be reconciled before any consumer hands over their keys to dark-holed algorithms.

As technologies accelerate the pace of change, that same momentum is pushing us into an era of ethical unknowns.
