A great way to discuss the benefits and limitations of ethical decisionmaking in AI systems through a classroom activity. Note that cars don’t actually distinguish between elderly people and children; cars also do not break the law. Would you buy a car that protected pedestrians above your own life? I use this as a classroom icebreaker, but take care to explain that new technologies embed values, even if it isn’t truly structured like this.
