    Conference Highlights

There have been proposals to program ethical algorithms into machines such as cars or robots. For instance, there have been utilitarian algorithms weighing costs and benefits of machine decisions, as well as attempts to build Kant’s Categorical Imperative into systems. These engineering efforts are important, because as cars or medical and care robots continue to proliferate in society, these machines will likely confront situations in which their actions will have ethical consequences. But are machines capable of making what humans consider ethical or moral decisions? Should they take these decisions? Or do humans always need to be in the loop? This panel will convene around these important questions.
