The role of education and ethics in the design of self-driving cars, with Vienna Harvey

Sunday, 14 April

In this episode of the Smart Community Podcast, Zoe brings you an interview she did on location in Silicon Valley as part of her Churchill Fellowship trip investigating Smart Mobility around the world. By the way, if you want to hear more from Zoe about her trip, you should subscribe to her exclusive podcast about her Churchill Fellowship. It’s exclusively for her supporters on Pozible, so head to Pozible.com today, search for My Smart Community, and hit support. There’s several episodes there already for you to get stuck into and hear Zoe’s insights from the various people, places and platforms she’s been exploring as part of her Churchill Fellowship.
In this episode, Zoe speaks with Vienna Harvey from online learning company, Udacity. Vienna is a Learning Technologist that specialises in the Self-Driving Car nano-degrees at Udacity. She also did a thesis project about the role of ethics in the design of self-driving cars, and she shares some really interesting findings from her research in this area. Zoe and Vienna also discuss the talent-gap in the autonomous vehicle industry and how Udacity’s nano-degrees are one way to combat this, as well as the emerging trend of actually seeing self-driving cars on the road in more places. There are a couple of tech glitches in this episode. It’s very listenable, however you will notice a few spots where Vienna’s words get slightly clipped, or the speed changes slightly. As always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
