2 February 2017 – Clare Hall College – University of Cambridge (UK): Luciano Butti will give a talk on the legal and ethical aspects of the driverless technology

On 2 February 2017, at 13,30 PM, at Clare Hall College – University of Cambridge (UK), Luciano Butti will give a talk on the following topic:

Autonomous cars, legal liabilities for accidents and the complex ethics of driverless algorithms.

What follows is a brief abstract of Luciano’s talk:
The driverless technology will soon be available. There will be drastic advantages in terms of safety, emissions’ reduction and time management while travelling by car. However, some important legal and ethical issues still need to be addressed satisfactorily. The former are related to the allocation of liabilities for accidents. The latter concern the ethical choices the autonomous cars will have to make in an emergency (ethics of algorithms). The talk will describe the state of the art in these fields.
