For four years now, the MAIF Foundation organizes the Grand Angle contest. This is an exceptional opportunity to find young talents creative in the realization of short films around a subject of public utility. For this fourth edition, the theme is "Autonomous cars, without hands but not without risks". A topic that echoes the increasingly sophisticated driver assistance systems that would allow our cars to become "autonomous" a few years from now.
Are we ready to trust theartificial intelligence ? To entrust to him our life and that of our loved ones? If the autonomous car met a obstacle (a child, for example), would she be able to avoid it? So many questions for which the answers are not necessarily obvious. In March 2018, thedeadly accident involving an autonomous vehicle of Uber in the city of Tempe (Arizona, USA) cast a shadow on the board. So, "without hands but without risks” !
The competition was open not only to schools but also to individuals with the sole purpose of fueling and stimulating creative minds and the consciences. The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday in Paris, where 11 members of the jury rewarded seven winners Grand Angle contest with many guests. Feel free to visit the competition's official website for more information and discover the short films that have received an award right away.
