Event Details

Robot Morality: Can a Machine Have a Conscience?

George R. Lucas Jr., Professor of Ethics and Public Policy, Naval Postgraduate School

Can we out-source morality to a robot? This isn't just a question from a sci-fi movie. Instead it's a question that comes from rapid advances in the field of robotics. Engineers, for example, have tried to program robots to make moral decisions – and to make such decisions when confronted with a rapidly changing and morally fraught situation. Lucas will address this issue, especially as it pertains to the military's increasing reliance on such devices.
