is it ethical to implement an algorithm that gives self-driving cars the right to kill in case of em

Self-driving cars hold out the promise of being safer than manually driven cars. Yet they cannot be a 100 % safe. Collisions are sometimes unavoidable. So self-driving cars need to be programmed for how they should respond to scenarios where collisions are highly likely or unavoidable. The accident-scenarios self-driving cars might face have recently been likened to the key examples and dilemmas associated with the trolley problem. In this article, we critically examine this tempting analogy. We...

Back in the first quarter of 2017, Intel launched it's seventh generation of i7 processors, some of the best performing processors of the year. The i7-7700k was being quite questionable, with temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius on full load. It wasn't long until AMD launched their 1800x processor, coming close, if not equal to Intel's i7-6900k. Finally, the 2 big companies that had been chugging along, were getting competitive. Recently, there has come to light that the thermal paste und...

Hello, Before I introduce myself... First Round is for acceptance only. Few clarifications: 1. Tech advancement is seen as a problem. 2. The problem should be lessened or even better to eliminate it. 3. Con should prove the aforementioned ideas otherwise, though other issues will arise during the next rounds. Further analysis and contextualization will be given on the next rounds. I am a Mechanical Engineering student and I want to know specifically the EFFECTS of technologies...

Should elementary school students have phones?

First, of I want to start off with the idea that ALL elementary school kids have no need for a phone because most schools don't offer sports or after-school activities for kids in elementary school. Thus they won't be in any situation where there alone and that there isn't a trusted adult( like a friends parent)....

I used to be a programmer and today I am an information security consultant. I am a business management graduate. My argument is that, technology could replace most of the learning today. Today you can, - Upload lessons on the web. - Share resources together like reading material and exam papers. - Regulate progress and attendance via different apps including geolocation apps. - Community support in forums by the teacher and other students. - New apps can be developed to drill the ma...

My phone was stolen, not 'Given away'

A few days ago, my 'friend' said he could fix my phone, because the battery was swollen. So I lent it to him, and since I had to give him my password, he hard reset my phone, with all of my family photos and storage. He then paid 50 dollars to get it fixed, and put HIS account on it. He said if I wanted it back, I'd have to pay, so I got his money, and then he said it's not for sale. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but can I have some feedback so I know what to do?!?!...
