In the near future, traffic accidents are greatly re- duced thanks to advances in automated driving. Rookie prosecutor YONAGO plans to sue an au- tomatic driving AI that caused a traffic accident for involuntary manslaughter. However, the machine testifies that “he” murdered the victim. The use of the Turing test (which assesses an AI system’s ability to exhibit human behavior) to simulate a potential AI problem results in this highly entertaining suspense film.[1 h. 6 min.]
