Ethics by Agreement in Multi-Agent Software Systems

Typical approaches include rule-based evaluation of moral choices, reinforcement-learning, and logic based approaches. All of these approaches assume a single moral agent interacting with a moral recipient. This paper argues that there will be more frequent cases where the moral responsibility for a situation will lie among multiple actors, and hence a designed approach will not sufﬁce. We posit that an emergence-based approach offers a better alternative to designed approaches. Further we outline one possible mechanism by which such an emergent morality might be added into autonomous agents.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||SCITEPRESS||Start page:||529||End page:||535||Keywords:||Ethics; Autonomous Systems; Bottom-up; Negotiation||DOI:||10.5220/0007958105290535||Other versions:||http://www.icsoft.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||van Sinderen, M., Maciaszek, L.
