Manufacturing Morality A general theory of moral agency grounding computational implementations: the ACTWith model

In Floares (ed.), Computational Intelligence. Nova Publications. pp. 1-65 (2013)

Abstract

The ultimate goal of research into computational intelligence is the construction of a fully embodied and fully autonomous artificial agent. This ultimate artificial agent must not only be able to act, but it must be able to act morally. In order to realize this goal, a number of challenges must be met, and a number of questions must be answered, the upshot being that, in doing so, the form of agency to which we must aim in developing artificial agents comes into focus. This chapter explores these issues, and from its results details a novel approach to meeting the given conditions in a simple architecture of information processing.
