Comment Game theory (Score 2) 364

Use good AI to optimize efficiency, but detect human drivers and give them a wider margin of safety.

As far as the morals of saving pedestrians vs passengers or drivers, lets not forget the bittorrent protocol.

Game theory, and real life itself, deal with cooperation vs defection, and any car that selflessly seppukus their own to spare a greater number is going to get taken advantage of by less scrupulous algorithms.

Anyone trying to program an AI on how to handle a car accident should not forget this.
