Automating Moral Reasoning (Invited Paper)

OASIcs-AIB-2022-6.pdf (0.5 MB)


Artificial Intelligence ethics is concerned with ensuring a nonnegative ethical impact of researching, developing, deploying and using AI systems. One way to accomplish that is to enable those AI systems to make moral decisions in ethically sensitive situations, i.e., automate moral reasoning. Machine ethics is an interdisciplinary research area that is concerned with the problem of automating moral reasoning. This tutorial presents the problem of making moral decisions and gives a general overview of how a computational agent can be constructed to make moral decisions. The tutorial is aimed for students in artificial intelligence who are interested in acquiring a starting understanding of the basic concepts and a gateway to the literature in machine ethics.
