THOUGHT EXPERIMENT AI: Since AI can be perfect and process much faster than humans, it can be massively safer than humans. Human drivers will probably be so much worse they'll be outlawed!
ACTUAL AI: We concluded brakes were distracting users from the ad flow so we removed them.
THE TROLLEY PROBLEM: A trolley barrels down a track. A control program must decide whether to turn a switch, killing a person, or do nothing, killing three. The control program was developed in 3 weeks by a team which quit the company last year and never got docs for the sensors.
There was an employee who advocated putting up rails to discourage people from walking on to the tracks so often but she was fired for being a "bad culture fit".
