This is published on 2nd May 2021. Let’s see how many years down that this becomes a common sight in all our homes.
Introducing the “Trolley Problem”, what would a robot do and what would you do? Let’s have a discussion.
The Trolley Problem. Learn more and the difference that changes due to psychological and moral choices. How do we chose? How do we process this?
But we are already having this problem with AI as there are cars that decide what to do in a “Trolley Problem” situation and there are fatal crashes involving self-driving cars in other countries.

Class discussions:

  • How important is heritage? Why should we preserve our heritage buildings?
  • Writing letters are becoming a lost art with the use of emails and electronic messaging systems. Is there a need to learn letter writing anymore?
  • Farming in Singapore is now more important then ever with Covid pandemic showing us food security is an issue not to be taken lightly. What else can we do to improve our situation in resource and land scarce Singapore? Also, talk about organic food and the advantageous/disadvantageous from food that might have pesticides.
  • Pests can be a problem, but why do they exist? Are they truly pests or is it just an inconvenience to humans? They probably exist for a good reason. What are they?
  • Robots are working at factories in place of human. What are the advantages and disadvantages? Also, AI (artificial intelligence) will take a bigger space in our future life, so what are the advantages and disadvantages that this might bring, after watching the videos about the Trolley Problem?
