Abstract: In the past few years autonomous vehicles have placed the ethics of technology center stage. Suddenly we realize our design decisions have immediate and possibly deadly consequences. Yet people working with technology have been considering life threatening situations for many years. This panel, organized in cooperation with the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT), will host a discussion between ethics experts from robotics, medical technology ethics and professional ethics. Prof. Arkin is Director of the Mobile Robot Laboratory, at Ga Tech and has worked on the autonomous vehicles challenge. Prof. Saha is Editor-in-Chief, Ethics in Biology, Engineering & Medicine and has hosted the conference of the same name for two decades. Prof. Herkel is Visiting Scholar, Genetic Engineering & Society Center, North Carolina State University.
