Whose lives matter to self-driving cars?

Reports suggesting that self-driving cars can’t ‘see’ people of color, people on bikes, and others leave more questions than answers about the safety of autonomous technology

PhotoPhoto (c) AlexPro9500 - Getty ImagesWhen a recent paper suggested that self-driving cars are more likely to hit pedestrians with darker skin, it was met with some skepticism. Critics quickly waved away the concerns by noting that the researchers didn’t have access to any individual company’s self-driving models or datasets. But that’s because such industry data is not offered to the public, leaving researchers with little way to independently vet the technology already being unleashed on public roads.
