Announcing an opportunity for inter-disciplinary research into implementing ethics in computers! Take a look at the new PhD position available in the School of Computer Science, at UCD. If you’re interested in investigating what it would mean for machine (any autonomic agent, really) to be ethical, how one would implement and verify such an agent, join the Machine Ethics Research Group .
We’re also organizing a workshop around the same theme. Check out the First UCD Inter-disciplinary Workshop on Implementing Machine Ethics.
