Towards Ethical Machines Via Logic Programming

2019 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
Thus, we need to ensure that they behave ethically. In this work we propose a hybrid logic-based approach for ethical chatbots.  ...  They contain information about us and start to perform tasks on our behalves. Chatbots are an example of such agents that need to engage in a complex conversations with humans.  ...  As a matter of fact the potential of logic programming (LP) to model moral machines was envisioned by Pereira and Saptawijaya [15] .  ...

Toward Modeling and Automating Ethical Decision Making: Design, Implementation, Limitations, and Responsibilities

Gregory S. Reed, Nicholaos Jones
2012 Topoi  
We use this particular project as a case study for efforts that seek to frame morality in quantitative terms.  ...  We report preliminary results from this research, describing the assumptions and limitations of a program that assesses the relative evil of two courses of action.  ...  The tool, a computer model which we shall refer to as the Metric of Evil, is designed to provide commanders with a tangible ethical viewpoint when analyzing potential courses of action by simulating the  ...
