He's formulated a ridiculous notion of artificial intelligence and moral decision making to something that would not require such a thing (even if it
were possible), when the scenario is completely irrelevant to the discussion. Clearly, he's a Luddite grasping at straws.
He owns an insurance company and has advisers that explain to him EXACTLY how the system will work. He likely has MORE information on how it will be
implemented, than most of the people working on the actual designs.
The scenario he laid out WILL eventually happen on roads occupied by Self-Driving Cars. How will the programing react to the scenario? You and I
cetainly don't know, but be assured it was THOROUGHLY explained to Warren behind closed doors at the C-level.
Its very safe to assume that he's already proposed this scenario to a Self-driving Car design team somewhere and received an answer that makes him
unwilling to allow HIS insurance companies to cover such vehicles.
Do you really think he's going to make a public statement along the lines of, "A Google Executive and lead engineer told me that Self-driving Cars
People like Warren Buffett don't tell the public what they are really thinking. He's likely more worried about paying claims or being involved in
class action lawsuits, due to AI mishaps. There is also the looming issue of public backlash from soaring premiums for human driven cars that will be
forced to share roads with Self-Driving Cars. The whole thing is a PR nightmare, that will cost him money, so it makes sense why he'd want to stay as
far away as possible.
Do you not understand how people like him make business decisions?
