The Real Moral Dilemma of Self-Driving Cars

  • Опубликовано: 19 янв 2017
  • We talk about all the potentially challenging situations autonomous cars could get into but not about how human drivers are not very good. Tens of thousands die on the roads every year in collisions, most of which could be prevented by autonomous vehicles.

    I wanted to make a video about autonomous cars for some time but I hadn't had the opportunity. The self-driving technology is already at a state where it can save lives if only it were more widely implemented.

      "If self-driving cars don't fix 100% of the accidents, then NO."
      That kinda sounds like:
      "If laws against murder won't solve all murder, then NO."

    I've heard this moral argument before with autonomous cars.
    My answer is this:
    The self driving car will never speed or get distracted. The self driving car will see situation out in front of the truck, essentially it will be able to see through traffic and not have to react. The autonomous car will be able to see in all conditions far better then us. How many drivers understand the posted speed limit is for ideal conditions? The A.I. will drive slower.
    In other words the self driving car will not get in a situation where it has to decide 1/ kill my owner 2/ kill children crossing the street 3/ kill other car occupants.

    Self driving cars also help the disabled and elderly.
    (thats if the elderly are willing to admit they shouldn't be driving)
    Maybe later on traffic jams won't be a problem since a satellite could control the flow of traffic.

    The other real dilemma is do we want other people to be able to remotely control where we go and if we die.

    Human driven technology is killing us.Technology driving humans wont?And exactly how can we get humans to fully accept this technology? At least in the US the love affair between, not just owning a car, but actually DRIVING it is deeply embedded in the american psyche. You go tell most car owners to relinquish the keys to their vehicles and you may run the risk of getting run over.Personally I am fascinated with the idea of a world where every car drives itself for the sake of transporting humans to where ever they wish to go. But in the near future? Hold your breath while I wont be holding mine.

    Comparing a car that drives in a lane that is most of the time 12 fest wide and in rush hour levels of traffic to a plane that can fly in the vast available space of the sky with the nearest planes only coming into account during take offs and landings is not a fair comparison. Tesla’s Elon Musk himself has said that perfect autonomous driving is impossible to achieve. Instead of trying to implement technology to correct wrong and illegal behaviors why don’t we focus on the actual issue of people breaking current and well established laws. There are countless studies proving that when drivers feel uncomfortable they drive more carefully, therefore why don’t we make driving a more uncomfortable experience for people instead of cradling those who are already breaking the laws. There are two sides to every story and I would like if people would do research on both.

    But the choice between swerving left into one guy or right into another is such a human thing. AI shouldn't think like that, there'd be more important metrics it would use, and options that humans can't have time to consider due us being so slow to process everything.
    It'd apply the brakes, or slide inbetween a gap, etc... Or it wouldn't get in the situation in the first place where you have no path but killing someone.

    One thing about self driving cars which I think is important to consider (whether you care or not is up to you) is where the motivation for their development is coming from. What car companies tell the public vs what they tell their investors as to why it's worthwhile for them to be researching and developing self driving vehicles are two separate things. The message to the public is basically what you hear in this video - the technology has real potential to save lives (and, not mentioned, to lower emissions of transportation by decreasing traffic). Those benefits are real, and while it's certainly a benefit for businesses pursuing the technology, it's not the main reason. Obviously the main reason is profit, whatever, that's the motivation behind any business venture. The problem is that most of the profit comes from data collected on the passengers of the autonomous vehicle - data on where people are going and when, most broadly, and this information can then be sold to whomever - retailers, advertisers, marketers, product planners, financial analysts, government agencies, anyone willing to pay for it, and who can then use that information to build profiles about you. It's nothing new, it's the same thing Facebook, Google and basically every other internet business does to internet users, just with information about your physical habits rather than digital. Whether you find this collection of personal data to be an unacceptable breach of privacy or not is up to you, I don't really care. I just think it's worth thinking about.

    Blah blah. Except that autonomous cars are still too stupid to not run over pedestrians or crash into walls for no good reason. They lack the contextual reasoning ability to predict how things will behave ahead of time to avoid otherwise potentially avoidable accidents, among other things.

  • Scott Biggs

    I think this really misses the most significant moral dilemma of autonomous vehicles. I generally feel safe while driving with other people around because I assume that they don't want to get hurt (or suffer some sort of loss or punishment) by hitting me. And even if another driver does cause me harm, I or those close to me can exact some sort of revenge (criminal or civil). Punishment and revenge don't make sense versus a machine. And that makes me wary.

    If the responsibility of what the car does autonomously falls to the owner, people will still drive manually, so to ensure this takes on and lives are spared, this responsibility cannot be of the owner of the vehicle, or, another option, is to lease them to people or have them serve as cabs so that the responsibility will be of the company.

  • Marty4650
    Marty4650 2 месяца назад +1

    The moral dilemma here isn't about safety. There is absolutely no doubt that self driving cars will be safer, since they remove the factors of driver error, driver impairment, and driver distraction.. There will be fewer lives lost.
    The real dilemma is about how this will change our society:
    1. FIVE million jobs lost (truck, cab, delivery and bus drivers).
    2. More people commuting since they can sleep on their way to work.
    3. More people living further from their jobs, using more fuel.
    4. More traffic and congestion, as they let their cars "drive around the block" rather than paying for parking.
    5. More roads needed as people who couldn't use cars now can. (Blind, elderly, infirm.etc.)
    6. Less need to carpool or share rides resulting in more cars on the road.
    The real problem isn't safety. It is economic and societal. Eventually, it will happen, but it will seriously change the way we do things, and those changes will have a severe impact on our lives.
    My guess is that every one of those problems listed above will be solved in time. But there will be some real problems during the transition.

    I'd prefer to wait a little longer before getting the self-driving cars on the road. Although the technology is quite impressive now, there's a lot of improvement that need to be made. There's research done Tesla Motors' autopilot mode, and it's only able to alert the driver of a motorcycle collision just under 60% of the time, compared to about 97% ish valid alerts with cars (I do have the link to the source, if anyone wants to fact check/correct this information). The biggest reason for this is because the DOT doesn't require motorcycle detection. I'm sure this will pose more of a problem with bicyclists, and possibly animals as well. I don't have any information on that, so correct me if I'm wrong. Although it'd cool to have self driving cars on the road now, being a motorcyclist that's already invisible to drivers, I'd rather wait for the standards to change before we make the cars more accessible.

    33000 deaths and 2 million injuries a year on the roads of the US. That sounds a lot until you work out what those figure represent as a percentage of the number of car journeys each year in the US.
    Car journeys = 411,000,000,00 (411 billion)
    Deaths = 30,000. (according to this video)
    The chance of you dying the next time you go out in your car = 0.00007% (Google calculator :)
    Car journeys = 411,000,000,00 (411 billion)
    Injuries = 2,000,000. (according to this video)
    The chance of you sustaining an injury the next time you go out in your car = 0.005% (Google calculator :)
    Funny how figures can be used to manipulate how you feel about a subject.

    If an autonomous vehicle experiences an error, no matter how less likely that error occurs in respect to human driver errors. The company who developed the driving algorithm would be liable for the driver's death. Then legislation that directs the liability back to the driver just removes any incentive for the company to produce a reliable algorithm. If the driver kills themselves because of their own error then it's not the brand's fault and these companies are perfectly fine with it.

      Not really marketing, but I'm well aware of humans making mistakes all the time while driving cars, and it is already the case that those imperfect autopilots we already have are MUCH more better in driving cars than humans. So I expect autopilots to reduce accidents on streets by at least 90% and those 10% left will be those stupid humans who go without any light in the mid of the night in front of a car like the recent uber car accident. The video shows it perfectly it was not ubers fault or the drivers fault but all the pedestrian fault changing the side of the street without watching out. Maybe it was suicide by car, or just stoned by some drugs.

    My question is the moral dilemma of "who should the car kill in a tough situation" a real question? cant we just program them to not get into stupid situations? and if every single car on the road was autonomous would it be even possible for a car to get into a crash that requires a tough choice?

    • Victor Bahzad
      Victor Bahzad 2 месяца назад

      No, it's more like an airline pilot saying "let's not land our plane on a crowded Highway." interesting enough the interstate highway system was in fact intended to serve as a landing site for military planes.
      I really don't see how many of these "moral dilemmas" scenarios would actually occur at higher than 25 mph, which would give the car ample stopping time.

    • Victor Bahzad
      Victor Bahzad 2 месяца назад

      Note, you're the one being the dipshit because as soon as I went into depth on my actual position on the subject you completely ignore the discussion and focus only on the accusation.
      many of these moral dilemmas presented could easily be avoided by programming the car to not go 60 miles an hour down a busy city road. which is actually illegal anyways. the cars drive cautious enough on their own for these artifical situatuion to be complete nonsense. I'd be interested in seeing what kind of accidents self driving cars actually do get into. but we wont know that until they are on the road for a good whle.

      Its called black box problem-solving. Basically, you analyze the cause of real-world situations after the fact so that future accidents and deaths are less likely.
      My original argument isn't that self-driving cars can be perfect. my original argument was that these moral dilemma situations will never happen in reality and the only way for them to actually happen is if you program the car to actively seek out dangerous situations.
      Yes, there will be accidents but they will look nothing like these moral dilemmas presented.

    There is no moral dilemma if it's a human choice.
    The driver should make those decision ahead of time, by setting up the right parameters in the self driving vehicle BEFORE the very first time he/she starts driving.
    - In an accident, should the car self crash in order to avoid injuring other people?
    - In an accident, should the car avoid hitting a bike or another vehicle first?
    - On a potential collision with an animal should the car try to save the animal or the passengers?

    if all these people are dying on the highways the maybe we should be looking at the highways. people may not like it but maybe traffic should be slowed to a max speed of 35MPH in all zones everywhere. this includes highways. just because you can go faster doesnt mean you should. next laws should be passed to make sure cars cannot exceed 50MPH even if you tried to make them do so. 3rd more laws should be pass stating that anyone driving over 50 should be charged with some form of wreckless endangerment and have their drivers license suspended for at least 1 year, if caught driving without one your car should be impounded indefinitely. all these measures would reduce deaths by a massive amount. sure it would take longer to get places but when the cost of getting there faster is peoples lives its not worth it.
    even driveless cars will sometimes break down. what happens when a circuit controlling the computer in a driverless car fries suddenly while its driving? what if its going 65MPH on a highway? do you still crash at 65mph? will you live? see the same question applies there too. 35MPH has a greater survival rate then 65. 65-70 is basically always death where as 35 normally results in severe, but treatable injuries.

    The missing part of this discussion is the fact that any tech in automobiles ends up having greater bugs than anticipated by the engineers, when first introduced on mass.
    I worked on automobiles for 26 years, having only changed careers in the past 2 years. I've seen many safety devices have to run the gauntlet of bugs to manage to outlive the lawsuits created by defective designs.
    All of this is to say, such tech will be excellent until it breaks. The question is, "Will this tech survive long enough to have a level of reliability greater than it's potential liability?"

    Good thing where I am there's winter and shittons of snow and ice. Self-driving cars would be rubbish in such conditions. We're not getting any of these officially implemented here for at least a 100 years. Easy.
    And if we ever do before that, I'm leaving country.

    I completely concur with all that is said in this video. Concerns over how a computer might juggle the choices between, as the thinking goes, it will prioritise when endangering 3rd parties, is unrealistic - i dont suppose any algorithm will be based on 'whom should i kill first?'. It also overlooks the fact that such decisions are already being made, by humans.
    My only concern about autonomous cars is that it will lead to me being excluded from having a right to drive at all, on the basis that you cant trust humans.

      two answers to that:
      a/ because humans need to be able to enjoy their lives, and driving cars is something enjoyed by many.
      b/ by saying "risk so many lives" you are grossly overstating the risks posed by human drivers, to others.
      When you remove deaths in single car accidents where the driver is also the victim, risk takers on motorbikes, and pedestrian deaths which are COMPLETELY preventable by pedestrians not walking in front of cars, then the % of all road deaths caused by an 'other' driver is quite small. Plus, the risk of being killed in a car accident is tiny in first place.
      so, yes, there is a risk in having humans drive cars, but it is a tiny one compared to a range of life's risks, and is entirely justifiable as a legitimate form of life enjoyment. this really is only an issue of importance for safety nazis who care nothing about the broader benefit to society. if avoiding any risk at any price was really worthwhile, then it would be illegal to go on a frivolous drive on the weekend for sightseeing. and we would have 40km/h speed limits on motorways. instead, the vast majority of people are happy to take some risk, in return for pragmatism and life enjoyment.
      lastly, exactly the same tecnological aids which will make driverless cars less risky, can be operational to some extent when cars are piloted, even further reducing the argument for not allowing people to drive cars.

    Making autonomous cars will take a happiness that many people feel from a car. Think about it- with self-driving cars, there will no longer be need for any sports cars to enjoy. I think that the solution is in the drivers' test don't allow redoes for a set amount of time and make the whole class harder so only qualified drivers get on the road.

    I disagree with the example at 1:35. If the vehicles can communicate with each other (which they probably will), than the car would be able to tell the other vehicles to stop or move out of the way or whatever whereas humans can’t send messages to other humans at high speeds.

    as far as i know most acident can simply by avoided by breaking if you are not speeding over speed limit. so i say. if the car detect that an acident will happen but cant avoid victims, the car should drive itself to make the car driver itself and its passagers be the only victims

    I️ see a few major problems with cars becoming self-driving in the way people are expecting them to.
    What I️ mean by this is, cars shouldn’t become self driving gradually, but all at once. This is easier said than done.
    The problem described in the video, should the car swerve left into an SUV with a family inside or to the right with an elderly man on a motorcycle is a real issue. It wouldn’t be if every car in the situation was self driving. The car behind the semi could talk to the SUV, the SUV could speed up and allow the car to move into the other lane to avoid the collision.
    But making every car on the road self driving all at once would be impossible, for reason one, price, Cars that are self driving are currently 40,000+ USD and some cost more. This puts the affordability at a low. Not everyone could afford a vehicle like that.
    Reason two is stubbornness, people are stubborn in their ways. Many wouldn’t trust the car and would rather drive themselves. This would cause an issue with all the other self driving cars on the road.
    Reason three, when accidents do happen. It doesn’t matter how many times they test and improve the self driving algorithms, there will be errors. No technology is ever completely perfect. There would still be accidents, glitches, miscalculations. Who do we blame for them? The car company? The Owner of the car? The car?!
    These were just a couple of the issues I️ see with self driving cars. Just my opinion though.

    What should the car do when faced with choosing between two bad options? Communicate with the self-driving vehicles to both sides to have them become a variable rather than a static in the equation.

    There is no moral question about what an autonomous car should do in some circumstance. For example the one shown in the clip that questions, "should the car swerve into the motorcycle or SUV." That is not a moral question. If the car is going to get into an accident and there is no place to go that does not cause another accident then the car just drives on into the accident, or bail of hay in this example.
    I have never heard of a situation that really poses a "moral question" because in all the cases I have heard the answer is the car will only avoid the accident it is about to get into if there is a way to avoid it without getting into another accident.
    You might be able to make up some situation where it looks like there is a moral choice, but in the context of a moving car with fractions of a second to make a surprise decision where you knowledge of the situation is not complete, I don't think you can come up with a situation that is not either incredibly rare to the point that's its meaningless in the context of human vs autonomous driving safety, or the answer is that if you are in a situation where you can't get out then you can't get out and there is nothing you or a computer can do about it.

    I think insurance premiums will usher in the inevitable autonomous vehicle era whatever happens. I don't agree that the moral dilemma questions are a distraction. Accelerating the uptake of self-driving cars does not get around the question of how to program the software to respond in a no win scenario. The decision has to be made ahead of time that is the difficult part.

    I keep seeing all these videos and reading all the articles (and the comment sections are worse) about swerving into a wall, thus killing the driver, swerving into three pedestrians, or hitting a school bus (or other BS scenarios).
    How many people reading this have a driver's license? Did you take a written test? Did the test ask if you were willing to kill yourself to avoid hitting one pedestrian? Did the test ask if you were willing to kill one pedestrian in order to spare a busload of children? Whether you would choose to hit a doctor or a nun? One child or fifty kittens?! ANSWER ME!!!
    I suspect that your written exam had no such questions.

      Well, yes, the switching argument makes sense. For where I live, it means 3-4 months of switching it off. That would greatly reduce the attractiveness of the feature. Just like any other "advanced" feature in a car, only a minority of people, and rich ones who don't care about coughing extra money, would actually buy the option.

    • Amethyst Espeon

      It is very close. They literally just showed it in the video. If people use it like Cruise Control, I can't see how it would have to learn how to drive in heavy weather. Besides, most *people* don't know how to drive in many of those circumstances. It's like saying that the elevator has to be able to autonomously use itself where it needs to go during a fire/earthquake. These cars aren't fully autonomous, they would allow drivers to take control. So when you're in those conditions, then just take control. But when you're coming home from college after a full day of finals after an allnighter, being able to turn on autopilot and relax sounds like a better idea than making that person drive themselves (I know going on the road either way is a bad idea, but people still do it.)

      You want proof? Your proof is in the millions of computer systems that manage mission critical infrastructure and systems (power stations, hospitals, autopilots) 24/7 without fault.
      Computers are better at driving than humans can ever be; they don't get distracted, they don't drive when impaired, they can make 1000s of adjustments to the controls by the time it takes a person to think "Hmm, should I go a bit slower?"
