People Packets and Fairness in the Age of Algorithmically Controlled Mobility Systems

Abstract: As we move toward a system of automated and connected mobility, we will need to confront important ethical, legal and political questions concerning the rules that will ultimately govern the mobility system. In this talk, the authors describe how we are already well into the process of automating driving, largely the result of our dependence on turn-by-turn navigation and other automation technologies. We describe important gaps in the current mobility governance landscape and discuss several key issues, the answers to which will shape the ethical character of tomorrow’s mobility system. Finally, we draw on historical ethical, legal and political aspects of the net neutrality debate to characterize the challenges we will face with the future of mobility

Jason Millar holds the Canada Research Chair in the Ethical Engineering of Robotics and AI, and is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa’s School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He researches the ethical engineering of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), with a focus on developing tools and methodologies engineers can use to integrate ethical thinking into their daily engineering workflow. Jason’s work concerns the ethical engineering of automated vehicles, artificial intelligence, healthcare robotics, social and military robotics.
