Self-driving cars could pick "who" to hit in an accident?!

This whole self-driving car thing scares me!

I don't know if I ever want to put my life in the hands of a computer to drive me around!  And I know they say that you'll be able to take control at anytime while riding in one.  But, if that's the case, and I still have to pay attention to the roads...I'd rather just take the wheel myself!

Anyway, MIT has been taking a worldwide poll using what it calls the Moral Machine...and the results could then be programmed into these self-driving cars in what to in an "accident situation".

For example, if given the choice, should a self-driving car hit...

  • a human or an animal?!
  • an old person or a young person?!
  • a man or a woman?!

Wanna' see how people around the world answered these moral dilemmas questions and more?!
