Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Machine ethics has been proposed as a new discipline at the intersection of ethics and computer science, aimed at investigating computational models of ethical principles to be embedded into the autonomous software and robotic systems to come. This work provides a view on the current research on autonomous systems and aims to show that classic ethics guiding human researchers is what is really needed.
