Computational Modelling of Morality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Morality no longer belongs only to the realm of philosophers. The study of morality also attracts the artificial intelligence community from the computational perspective, and has been known by several names, including machine ethics, machine morality, artificial morality, and computational morality. Our ultimate goal within this topic is to provide a general framework to model moral dilemmas and to draw moral judgments computationally. This framework should serve as a toolkit to codify arbitrarily chosen moral rules as declaratively as possible. We envisage that logic programming is an appropriate paradigm to achieve our purpose.
