The car knows from your credit card (and cross-linked databases) that you are 70. An average 70-year-old male has eight years of life left.
Will the car swerve right, into the back of a parked semi, avoiding a head-on with the errant vehicle and oncoming cars but decapitating you, or will it save your life by swerving into the path of a kid on the sidewalk next to the truck, a kid who has 70 years left?
MIT is collecting crowdsourced moral decisions about what self-driving cars should do when the worst happens.
