Here's an interesting one: It's the year 2026 and Person A is in a Driverless Skoda. Lovely and safe.

However, there's an accident up ahead, the car is doing 30mph and the computer has two options...

a) Save the driver and run into and probably kill 10 pedestrians.
b) Swerve into a wall and kill you, but save the pedestrians.

How should the car of the future be programmed?

Now replace Person A with you and your family........
