The case is about Trolley Problems. Whether or not questions like this are worthy of discussion.
Team1: Trolley problems or similar questions/problems are important to discuss.
– With the newly emerging autonomous cars, these cars may face the same issue as the trolley problem that’s why we need to discuss those issues.
– Solutions to the problem can be based on the driver’s culture. (The driver’s beliefs and culture impact/influences the decision of the autonomous vehicle)
Team2: Trolley problems are NOT worthy of discussion
– Trolley problems have no real solutions to them. No need to discuss them since the problem is not solvable.
– We can’t come up with a solution to the problem that satisfies the majority of people.
– Discussing those issues would cost time, effort, and money.
