Artificial Intelligence. Human Brilliance.

A self-driving car is travelling down a street. A tree falls. Should the AI keep going, hitting the tree and harming the people in the car — or swerve and hit pedestrians on the sidewalk instead?

We help you approach this and other dilemmas facing organizations in the fast-rising world of AI.
