AMC Debates Club: The Future of Driverless Cars

IMG_6610Join us on Sunday, April 26 at 3 p.m. to discuss the future of driverless cars! This type of cars is about to revolutionize our ideas about ground transportation. Currently, major car manufacturers, such as Volkswagen, Mercedes and Nissan, as well major IT companies, have already built actual prototypes of this technology. By 2030, it is likely that driverless cars will not only be a common sight on our highways, but also overtake usual cars in their numbers. However, should we actually let this change happen? Is it safe, ethical and economically feasible to let driverless cars prevail on our roads? Express your point of view at our Debates Club’s meeting!
