If self-driving cars become widespread, society will have to grapple with a new burden: the ability to program vehicles with preferences about which lives to prioritize in the event of a crash. Human drivers make these choices instinctively, but algorithms will be able to make them in advance.

This is from an article at The Verge, if you take the questionnaire you’ll be presented with some near-impossible moral choices about who should live or die after a crash. Not a fun questionnaire, a lot of difficult questions, but it will decide eventually what a computer is doing to decide for us.
