Over the past month, we’ve published a host of articles about self-driving cars as part of our sixth installment of Futurography—a project from Future Tense in which we explore a different technological issue each month. We’ve seen experts exploring the relationship between autonomous vehicles and social change, the legal complexities of self-driving cars, and the ethical quandaries of this emerging technology.
With all that behind us, we’re most interested in what you think. Where do these conversations leave us? Where do we go from here?
Come back next month for a roundup of your responses.
This article is part of the self-driving cars installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Each month from January through June 2016, we’ll choose a new technology and break it down. Read more from Futurography on self-driving cars:
