During the upcoming 2021 Summer B session, a unique course offering will explore ethical issues in technological entrepreneurship, specifically focusing on the implementation of autonomous vehicles. Topics will include:
- How should communities determine policies on autonomous vehicles?
- How should autonomous vehicles be programmed to make life-and-death decisions?
- How should society navigate between what is technologically feasible and what is desirable?
The course will be offered to all Fulton Schools students, for both ASU Online and iCourse at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Guests speakers from Telsa, Mobileye, Intel and others will offer expertise on these topics.

“Why should you have to worry about the fate of humankind when other people should be doing so, including our government and business leaders? The reason is that they are not worrying about the fate of humankind—at least, not enough, and not in the right ways. Technology companies are trying to build standards for the Internet of Things; scientists are attempting to develop ethical standards for human-genome editing; and policy makers at the FAA are developing regulations for drones. They are all narrowly focused. Very few people are looking at the big picture, because the big picture is messy and defies simple models. With so many technologies all advancing exponentially at the same time, it is very hard to see the forest for the trees.”
