Moral Dilemmas in Transportation

We explore how AI is transforming how we move, and the ethical challenges associated with it. We’ll start at SAIL (The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory) to take a tour of the robotics facility.  We’ll then walk over to CARS (Center for Automotive Research at Stanford) to learn about AI in the transportation space and wrangle with challenging ethical questions.
