AI ethical decision making: Is society ready?

With the accelerating evolution of technology, artificial intelligence (AI) plays a growing role in decision-making processes. Humans are becoming increasingly dependent on algorithms to process information, recommend certain behaviors, and even take actions of their behalf. A research team has studied how humans react to the introduction of AI decision making. Specifically, they explored the question, ‘is society ready for AI ethical decision making?’ by studying human interaction with autonomous cars.
