### [[Ethics of Decision-Making]] #Artificial_Intelligence #Ethics #Future #Prediction #Technosophy #Mind_Excersise We will VERY SOON need to program machines to take very sensitive decisions that, as humans, we had the luxury of not having to decide. I call it a luxury because, under extremely stressfully and unexpected situation, humans tend to run on "autopilot" and rarely gave the conscious ability to assess and take a decision. But with artificial intelligence, hundreds of sensors, millisecond decision power, machines are able to take an informed decision. Self driving cars pose a prime example of this. Would you want self driving cars to prioritize the life of the passengers, or the pedestrians? Would you want self driving cars to prioritize the life of animals over humans? Should we program the machines to randomize the outcome? Someone needs to take those decisions and program that! Would all this result in the creation of a black market, where altered software is sold? For instance, if companies/governments decide to prioritize pedestrians. Would black market "mods" be sold to reprogram your car to prioritize you? Try to think of those questions from the multiple perspectives. This is just one of the many hard questions humans will have to answer in the next few years, as we start getting the power to control things we had the luxury of not controlling.
