Calvin Jason is a technology analyst who mainly focuses on the Artificial Intelligence especially self driving cars. He appreciates the opportunities presented by autonomous vehicles in terms of safety, convenience, comfort, connectivity, reduction in traffic jams. However, there is the thorny issue of ethics of these automobiles. Have you ever asked yourself, 'If a speeding autonomous car carrying one person comes across six humans crossing the highway unexpectedly, what is it supposed to do?

These issue require intensive analysis because the future of self driving cars is now.
