Computational Ethicist

Brief: Ethics of, for and by computational systems
Jump To: Parent Description

  • There seems to exist an attitude that computational ethics is impossible, but even if it is in the general case, it is extremely important to nevertheless develop the theory of computational ethics, of, for and by computational systems. I think that the field is woefully underdeveloped, however, there is more promising recent work. A regression library of Situations and their moral responses, such as I believe is being built by MIT, is a good starting point. As is work on deontic logic, and formal verification of ethical decisions. Collecting research into this area. Another area of study is ai safety, which is receiving increasing scrutiny lately.
