The developing academic field of machine ethics seeks to make artificial agents safer as they become more pervasive throughout society. Motivated by planned next-generation robotic systems, machine ethics typically explores solutions for agents with autonomous capacities intermediate between those of current artificial agents and humans, with designs(More)
— Lean principles, originating from Japanese automotive industry, are anticipated to be useful to improve software development processes. Albeit its popularity there is still no generally accepted, clear and detailed definition of what lean software development actually means. This makes it difficult to perform research on the effects of lean software(More)
A method to continuously separate different particle types in a suspension is reported. Acoustic forces in a standing wave field were utilized to discriminate lipid particles from erythrocytes in whole blood. The presented technology proposes a new method of cleaning, i.e. removing lipid emboli from, shed blood recovered during cardiac surgery. Blood(More)
Some researchers in the field of machine ethics have suggested consequentialist or utilitarian theories as organizing principles for Artificial Moral Agents (AMAs) (Wallach, Allen, and Smit 2008) that are 'full ethical agents' (Moor 2006), while acknowledging extensive variation among these theories as a serious challenge (Wallach, Allen, and Smit 2008).(More)
—Complex software is becoming an important component of modern safety-critical systems. To assure the correct function of such software, the development processes are heavily regulated by international standards, often making the process very rigid, unable to accommodate changes, causing late integration and increasing the cost of development. Agile methods(More)
The shoot apical meristem (SAM) is a dome-shaped collection of cells at the apex of growing plants from which all above-ground tissue ultimately derives. In Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress), a small flowering weed of the Brassicaceae family (related to mustard and cabbage), the SAM typically contains some three to five hundred cells that range from five(More)
