Industry meets philosophy: Continental CEO Dr Elmar Degenhart discussed the ethics of autonomous driving with philosopher Professor Rafael Capurro. In part one of the video highlights, the experts debate how to close the gap of public acceptance and why we need an urgent update of our roads.

“Mobility of the Future” – that is the name of recurring round-table discussion format held by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). Last time, a particularly promising conversation took place: Continental CEO Elmar Degenhart met philosopher Rafael Capurro, an expert for information ethics. Moderated by German TV journalist Ines Arland in Berlin, the two thought leaders openly exchanged their – sometimes differing – views on the ethics of autonomous driving. In a three-part series, we bring you the highlights of the debate.

Parts 2 and 3 of the series will be published in the upcoming weeks!

Recommendation:
