Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are increasingly embraced around the world to advance smart mobility and more broadly, smart, and sustainable cities. Algorithms form the basis of decision-making in AVs, allowing them to perform driving tasks autonomously, efficiently, and more safely than human drivers and offering various economic, social, and environmental benefits. However, algorithmic decision-making in AVs can also introduce new issues that create new safety risks and perpetuate discrimination… Expand
Adaptive governance of autonomous vehicles: Accelerating the adoption of disruptive technologies in Singapore
TLDR
The findings reveal that AV regulatory sandboxes, the formalisation of safety assessments and the release of technical guidelines are some of the most adaptive and innovative instruments that have been adopted to govern AVs in Singapore. Expand
Managing Uncertainty in AI-Enabled Decision Making and Achieving Sustainability
TLDR
To understand how to manage uncertainty inAI-enabled decision-making applications, the authors conduct a literature review using content analysis with practical approaches and a mechanism related to those practical approaches is proposed for managing diverse types of uncertainty in AI- enabled decision making.

Public acceptance and perception of autonomous vehicles: a comprehensive review
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) or self-driving cars have the potential to provide many benefits such as improving mobility and reducing the energy and emissions consumed, travel time, and vehicleExpand
Governance of artificial intelligence
ABSTRACT The rapid developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the intensification in the adoption of AI in domains such as autonomous vehicles, lethal weapon systems, robotics and alike poseExpand
The First Two Decades of Smart City Research from a Risk Perspective
Although they offer major advantages, smart cities present unprecedented risks and challenges. There are abundant discrete studies on risks related to smart cities; however, such risks have not beenExpand
Framing governance for a contested emerging technology:insights from AI policy
ABSTRACT This paper examines how the governance in AI policy documents have been framed as way to resolve public controversies surrounding AI. It draws on the studies of governance of emergingExpand
Law and tech collide: foreseeability, reasonableness and advanced driver assistance systems
ABSTRACT Recently, many scholars have explored the legal challenges likely to be posed by introduction of automated and autonomous vehicles. Minimal attention has focused on the legal implications ofExpand
Technological Drivers of Urban Innovation: A T-DNA Analysis Based on US Patent Data
Fast urbanization leads to several challenges in many cities all over the world. Thus, urban innovation is considered a common approach to deal with such questions. Although technologies areExpand
Why and how does the regulation of emerging technologies occur? Explaining the adoption of the EU General Data Protection Regulation using the multiple streams framework
Why and how the regulation of emerging technologies occurs is not clear in the literature. In this study, we adapt the multiple streams framework – often used for explaining agenda-setting and policyExpand
What rules? Framing the governance of artificial agency
ABSTRACT Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new, but recent years have seen a growing concern about the technology’s political, economic and social impact, including debates about its governance.Expand

Influencing Factors of Driving Decision-Making Under the Moral Dilemma
TLDR
Key factors are extracted to characterize the driving decisions under different scenarios and quantified by the gray relation entropy analysis method, and showed that priority levels of the influencing factors in each moral dilemma were considerably different. Expand
Governing autonomous vehicles: emerging responses for safety, liability, privacy, cybersecurity, and industry risks
TLDR
It is revealed that, thus far, governments have in most instances avoided stringent measures in order to promote AV developments and the majority of responses are non-binding and focus on creating councils or working groups to better explore AV implications. Expand
Autonomous Vehicles for Smart and Sustainable Cities: An In-Depth Exploration of Privacy and Cybersecurity Implications
TLDR
The efforts taken by federal governments in the US, the UK, China, Australia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Germany, France, and the EU, and by US state governments to address AV-related privacy and cybersecurity risks are reviewed. Expand
Adaptive governance of autonomous vehicles: Accelerating the adoption of disruptive technologies in Singapore
TLDR
The findings reveal that AV regulatory sandboxes, the formalisation of safety assessments and the release of technical guidelines are some of the most adaptive and innovative instruments that have been adopted to govern AVs in Singapore. Expand
The social dilemma of autonomous vehicles
TLDR
Even though participants approve of autonomous vehicles that might sacrifice passengers to save others, respondents would prefer not to ride in such vehicles, and regulating for utilitarian algorithms may paradoxically increase casualties by postponing the adoption of a safer technology. Expand
Incorporating Ethical Considerations Into Automated Vehicle Control
TLDR
A set of ethical frameworks are used to map design decisions for a model predictive control problem to philosophical principles and the strong link between ethical principles and actual vehicle behavior developed through this approach is demonstrated. Expand
Does the GDPR Help or Hinder Fair Algorithmic Decision-Making?
TLDR
This dissertation proposes that Article 22, and the other provisions for data subjects’ rights, are insufficient for regulating the use of ADM on the “natural persons” 6 who are intended to be protected by the GDPR. Expand
The challenges and limits of big data algorithms in technocratic governance
TLDR
It is argued that through unravelling the imperceptibility, materiality and governmentality of how algorithms work, the authors can better tackle the inherent challenges in the curatorial practice of data and algorithm. Expand
Away from Trolley Problems and Toward Risk Management
TLDR
The shortcomings of the trolley problem are discussed, more nuanced examples that involve crash risk and uncertainty are introduced, and risk management is introduced as an alternative approach, and its ethical dimensions are discussed. Expand
Irresponsibilities, inequalities and injustice for autonomous vehicles

TLDR
A thought experiment is introduced which situates autonomous vehicles within the context of crash optimisation impulses and coordinated or networked decision-making and argues that guiding ethical frameworks overlook compound or aggregated effects which may arise, and which can lead to subtle forms of structural discrimination.
