The problem of selecting between 5 lives or 1

https://www.technologyreview.com/2018/10/24/139313/a-global-ethics-study-aims-to-help-ai-solve-the-self-driving-trolley-problem/

Plus other problems

Why would one select 5 to die instead of 1?

Is it because you then decide with then guilty conscience?

This is stupid.

"The Moral Machine took that idea to test nine different comparisons  
shown to polarize people: should a self-driving car prioritize humans  
over pets, passengers over pedestrians, more lives over fewer, women  
over men, young over old, fit over sickly, higher social status over  
lower, law-abiders over law-benders?"

How does the car know women vs men, young vs old, fit vs sickly, higher  
social status over lower, law-abiders over law-benders?

Any self driven car would be able to avoid hitting the many/few, young/old, etc. by stopping.  

It's a hypothetical.

Do you also think Schroedinger's Cat is stupid?

How would a human driver know all that?

If you suddenly found yourself in that position, what would you do?
