The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) research group on “Practicing Evidence” is hosting an international workshop on autonomous vehicles at the Deutsches Museum entitled Who’s Driving? Agency and Evidence in the History of Technical Safety.

The goal of the workshop is to provide historical context for understanding the ethical and practical implications of driveless vehicles. I will be giving the keynote address that opens the workshop. The title of my talk is “From Giant Brains to Autonomous Vehicles, or: How We Learned to Trust AI.”
