Overview

Can machines learn right from wrong? As the first generation of driverless cars and battlefield warbots filter into society, scientists are working to develop moral decision-making skills in robots. Break or swerve? Shoot or stand down? These decisions may be based on algorithms created with a defined set of parameters—the international laws of war, for example. Or they might be influenced by “ethical adapters,” programs that simulate human emotions like guilt and shame.  It may even be possible for intelligent machines to develop a moral framework through accumulated experience, much like a child does.  But as “ethical robotic software” proliferates, who will be responsible for those decisions? What other emotions might robots acquire? And how will society adapt to machines that appear—and yet aren’t quite—human?

We’ll tackle these and other questions as the leading neuroscientists, roboticists, philosophers, and computer scientists take us inside the emerging field of robot morality.
