Elon Musk, Tesla founder and Tech guru is convinced that autonomous driving “is just going to become normal.” But for a society to fully embrace the self-driving technology, it must be able to also reap its rewards. What are the societal benefits of autonomous cars? What will be the key enablers for them to be viable transport options? And what are necessary legal and infrastructural changes that have to be set in motion before a comprehensive introduction of self-driving vehicles into our streets? On the other hand, ethical concerns as well as questions regarding safety and liability should not be left out of the conversation.
These and other issues will be addressed by our experts Daniel Göhring from Freie Universität Berlin, and Yaobin Chen and Clayton Nicholas from IUPUI in their keynotes and podium discussion, which will be moderated by Dimitris Milakis from the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The audience will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion during the subsequent Q&A session.
The Freie Universität Berlin–Indiana University joint speaker series aims at bringing together scholars from both institutions to discuss current topics of global politics, stir scientific dialogue and research initiatives, and trigger public debate.
