I think he refers to an old philosophical question.
The classic example is 'you're conducting a train. You come around a bend, and there's a track split. One track A is, say, a person. On track B is, say, two people. You don't have time to brake. All you can do is pick which track you take. Which one do you take?
What if Track B has five people? One child? A world-class doctor who saves lives? A scumbag criminal? Your wife?
So, say you're in a self-driving car. The car wants to make a left turn across traffic at a four-way intersection. So it advances into the intersection, stops to wait for a break in oncoming traffic, and waits.
Sensors notice a semi coming up behind you, and not stopping. In front of you is an old person crossing the road. To your right is a kid on a bicycle. To your left is a stead stream of through traffic. Where do you go?
Yes, but the spoons have been ground down to sharp points.
Seriously, though, this is awesome. I seem to recall that getting educated in prison is one of the best ways to avoid future prison time.
I'm also not particularly tempted to replace my satellite bill with a bunch of smaller streaming bills especially when support for any particular service on any particular device is hit or miss.
The absence of standardisation here is one of my bugbears. My Sony TV supports Netflix and iPlayer (The must-haves in the UK), but players for the other major channels seem to be missing.
Still, you can get cheap android based devices, and Android itself is a fairly stable standard. Even Amazon's fork for FireTV seems to be pretty well represented, and the devices are cheap enough I don't mind throwing it out if it does become obsolete in a year or two.
the problem is likely that 27 tons of paperwork haven't been completed,
Maybe they should just put the paperwork on the seat.
