How is criminal liability attributed when severe injuries and deaths occur in the context of “self-driving”? This seminar addresses thorny legal and ethical issues stemming from approportionating liability between humans and machines in the grey zone of partially autonomous vehicles. With a special attention to the GBA area, it examines the status quo of liability distribution from a comparative perspective and reveals challenges posed to the existing Chinese legal framework(s) when accountability issues arise from a shared mode of driving controlled by human actors and AI algorithms.
