An account for determining when an AI system can be said to embody certain values is proposed, which understands embodied values as the result of design activities intended to embed those values in such systems.
From machine ethics to computational ethics
This essay argues that the appellation ‘machine ethics’ does not sufficiently capture the entire project of embedding ethics into AI/S, and hence the need for computational ethics, and offers a philosophical analysis of the subject of computational ethics that is not found in the literature.
From computer ethics and the ethics of AI towards an ethics of digital ecosystems
