Google Technology

Google times Money, equals weird Technology. Here I am, utilizing Google.com for a Google project, thank you Google. Once a little search engine that could, now turns into a company giant that involves technological breakthroughs. Google is pouring its time, money, and effort in the name of technology that has already hit the markets today, many of us wouldn’t even think was feasible. While some projects could lead to fantasies, though; more and more are coming true, such as: Self-driving car, Project wing, Google fiber, Google glass, Home Automation and Smart Thermostats (Google Nest). These inventions may seems crazy, however; it could potentially help our civilization as it pertains to simplistic capabilities, not just for the normal population, but for the handicapped as well. So, without further ado, let’s get right to it.

Self-Driving Automobile

Among other huge automobile manufacturers (Chevy, Ford, Mercedes, etc.), Google went all in and partnered up with Fiat and Chrysler, they have developed an automobile that can operate and navigate without the control of a human being.  Google has working prototypes in development that have successfully driven over 1.5 million miles without incident (Google, 2016).  The vehicles are equipped with advanced types of sensors to include: Radar, GPS, and Computer Vision that can see beyond 2 footballs fields.  Configured by human experience, the cars are able to maneuver through sensory and gauge their surroundings to safely avoid collisions.  Without discomfort, they can even detect flying plastic bags and rogue birds as it crosses its path. Though, with a soft spoken voice, essentially; the egg shaped Google car can do exactly what a human driver can do.

One of the big challenges Google is facing is Insurance. Currently, since this is a new operation on a massive scale, the operator of the vehicle is liable for damages after an accident.  If a car is operating on its own and it collides with another person or object, who is then liable?  This is an issue that many organizations will have to collaborate on to provide a sound solution.  Insurance companies, local and federal legislation, and manufacturers will need to work together to determine how liability claims will be handled.  According to Forbes, “one model would be to have the car manufacturer bear all the liability and impose that liability simply based on the autonomous car’s being a substantial cause of the injury” (Harrow, R., 2016, para. 5). It is important to remember that the evolution of laws and the liability systems.

If self-driving vehicles become more common, our current systems will eventually have to adapt to new demands associated with such a drastic change that affects a large portion of the population.

The most positive outcome of self-driving cars, in short: safety. Automobile accidents occur from human error mostly due to lack of attention or aggressive behavior behind the wheel. We need to understand that people do not give 100 percent of their attention behind the wheel.  Drivers will drink, text, drop food, put on eye liner, and interact with passengers. Oh and not to mention, drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Distraction and human error would no longer be contributing factors in car accidents, even on a toxic night out.  Ultimately, the goal is to make car accidents a thing of the past.  However, there is still the issue of hardware and software failure.  Of course, no machine is perfect and they all have glitches and eventually wear down (over-heating, etc.).  Until these robot cars can be tested over and over with every obstacle; just like human beings face when operating a vehicle, such as extreme weather (hail, lighting, tornados), other drivers, unexpected mechanical failures, they will still remain a prospect for the future.

This is where I stopped…

In addition to other sources that you find in your research into this technology, make sure that you read “The Moral Case for Self-Driving Cars” (http://reason.com/archives/2014/07/28/the-moral-case-for-self-drivin/print).  In light of everything you learn about this technology both from this article and from your own additional research, discuss your reaction to the author’s final statement: “People a generation hence will marvel at the carnage we inflicted as we hurtled down highways relying on just our own reflexes to keep us safe” (Baily, 2014, para. 19).  Bailey also states:

More than 90 percent of all traffic accidents are the result of human error. In 2011, there were 5.3 million automobile crashes in the United States, resulting in more than 2.2 million injuries and 32,000 deaths. Americans spend $230 billion annually to cover the costs of accidents, accounting for approximately 2 to 3 percent of GDP.

Given these facts, do you believe there is a moral imperative to eventually replace all human-driven cars with safer computer-driven cars?  Why or why not?  Be sure to answer this as part of your analysis.

Name of Your Second Technology

Replace “Name of Your Second Technology” in the above sub-heading with the actual name of the Google technology you will be writing about in this section.  This section must be a minimum of 500 words and must include: 1) a description of the technology, 2) challenges that Google could face in implementing this technology, 3) suggestions for overcoming some of the potential challenges and obstacles, and 4) an analysis of the potential positive and negative impacts of this technology on society.  Make sure you address all four of these areas in your analysis.  When analyzing this technology, be sure to consider whether this technology has any potential environmental impacts (positive or negative).  If there are any environmental concerns related to this technology, discuss what steps could be taken to address the concerns.  Also consider whether there are any security and/or privacy concerns related to this technology.  Identify any specific resources, methods, or approaches that could help make this technology, and the individuals and firms using this technology, more secure. In additional to addressing practical challenges and potential impacts, be sure to discuss ethical and moral challenges and potential impacts of this technology, just like in my example above of the potential moral and ethical impacts of the self-driving automobile.  Also, consider the impact this technology will have on managers in the future.  Since we are studying management information systems in this course, discuss the types of information systems managers will likely need to use in the future in relation to this technology.  Refer back to the section on self-driving automobiles for an example of such an impact, and then think of some potential impacts for the technology you are writing about in this section.
