Special Issue Papers
This paper provides an overview of IEEE’s current activities related to ethics and argues that human values must drive our future autonomous systems in a way that both protects and benefits humanity.
This paper describes both simulated and real-robot implementations of an eldercare robot in which ethical principles are learned, via inductive logical programming, from a set of training examples provided by a project ethicist.
In this paper, the authors review and update an approach to the design of ethical robots based on a simulation-based internal model, in which the ethical robot’s reasoning is both transparent and verifiable.
In this paper, the authors clarify various philosophical issues surrounding the concept of an ethical machine and the aims of machine ethics, outlining the potential risks that must be considered and managed.
Based around a case study on the “flaming” of fan fiction, this paper aims to clarify notions of privacy and draw lessons for the ethical governance of AI in the presence of value conflicts.
This paper explores a method for embedding ethics into the design and use of an endoscopic capsule for diagnosis and drug delivery, using a codesign approach to reduce end-user risk.
This paper reports on the findings from a survey of 124 engineers in order to understand the drivers and impediments facing ethical systems development with respect to privacy and security engineering.
