|Title:||Landscape of Machine Implemented Ethics||Other Titles:||Landscape of Machine Ethics Implementations||Authors:||Nallur, Vivek||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12395||Date:||Oct-2020||Online since:||2021-08-09T15:01:25Z||Abstract:||This paper surveys the state-of-the-art in machine ethics, that is, considerations of how to implement ethical behaviour in robots, unmanned autonomous vehicles, or software systems. The emphasis is on covering the breadth of ethical theories being considered by implementors, as well as the implementation techniques being used. There is no consensus on which ethical theory is best suited for any particular domain, nor is there any agreement on which technique is best placed to implement a particular theory. Another unresolved problem in these implementations of ethical theories is how to objectively validate the implementations. The paper discusses the dilemmas being used as validating ‘whetstones’ and whether any alternative validation mechanism exists. Finally, it speculates that an intermediate step of creating domain-specific ethics might be a possible stepping stone towards creating machines that exhibit ethical behaviour.||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Journal:||Science and Engineering Ethics||Volume:||26||Start page:||2381||End page:||2399||Copyright (published version):||2020 Springer Nature||Keywords:||Artificial intelligence; Robotics; Machine ethics; Autonomous systems; Implementation and design||DOI:||10.1007/s11948-020-00236-y||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
