The Trolley Problem: Will Our Cars Grow up to be Heroes?
Alex Walker

Great write-up, Alex. You’ve explained the Trolley Problem really well, and presented a really thought-provoking example of how it applies to a practical situation. I’ve never been a fan of “self-driving” technology, and am even less so now. I wonder which car will be the first to choose the algorithm—“Yeah, just kill the fat guy”.
