TOPIC: The Morals of Autonomous Driving
BONUS: PMI Thumb Chapter Business Meeting
PDU: .75 - Technical - .75 Strategic
SPEAKER: Kelvin Elvidge, ASQ CQE, CQA, and CSQE
BONUS: Anita Kenworthy, PMP and Thumb Chapter President
The Morals of Autonomous Driving is a hands-on interactive demonstration of what types of decisions autonomous vehicles will need to make on a daily basis. In the presentation we will go thru different scenarios and at the end we can see how we rank in our decisions compared to all others that have taken the same simulation. From self-driving cars on public roads to self-piloting reusable rockets landing on self-sailing ships, machine intelligence is supporting or entirely taking over ever more complex human activities at an ever-increasing pace. The greater autonomy given machine intelligence in these roles can result in situations where they have to make autonomous choices involving human life and limb. This calls for not just a clearer understanding of how humans make such choices, but also a clearer understanding of how humans perceive machine intelligence making such choices.
BONUS: Anita will present the Thumb Chapter's business year in review from the beginning of 2019 to present.
PMI-MTC was approved by the State of Michigan to participate in the Adopt a Highway program. We are now responsible for 1.74 miles of the I-475 highway from I-75 to Hill Rd.
Cleanup Date: July 18th, 2020
Our last cleanup date was May 9th so we don't expect a large build-up of things to pick up since then but we still need your help. We meet at 8:30 am for a brief safety meeting then head out. We meet at the Wingate Hotel at I-475 and Hill road. Volunteers can email Ed Turley to let him know you are attending or Register for the event at the link below.
