As artificial intelligence moves ever closer to the goal of producing fully autonomous agents, the question of how to design and implement an artificial moral agent (AMA) becomes increasingly pressing. Robots possessing autonomous capacities to do things that are useful to humans will also have the capacity to do things that are harmful to humans and other sentient beings. Theoretical challenges to developing artificial moral agents result both from controversies among ethicists about moral… 
Toward equipping Artificial Moral Agents with multiple ethical theories
TLDR
A three-layer model for general normative ethical theories that can be used to serialise the ethical views of people and businesses for an AMA to use during reasoning to undermine an AMA's ability to be moral in a human sense is designed.
The problem of machine ethics in artificial intelligence
TLDR
The attempt in this paper is to discuss, first, whether ethics is the sort of thing that can be computed, and second, if the authors are ascribing mind to machines, it gives rise to ethical issues regarding machines.
ETHICA EX MACHINA. Exploring artificial moral agency or the possibility of computable ethics
Since the automation revolution of our technological era, diverse machines or robots have gradually begun to reconfigure our lives. With this expansion, it seems that those machines are now faced
Do androids dream of normative endorsement? On the fallibility of artificial moral agents
TLDR
It is argued that full moral autonomy also implies the option of deliberately acting immorally, and that an AMA questioning the moral framework it is supposed to act upon would fail to reliably act in accordance with moral standards.
Robot minds and human ethics: the need for a comprehensive model of moral decision making
Building artificial moral agents (AMAs) underscores the fragmentary character of presently available models of human ethical behavior. It is a distinctly different enterprise from either the attempt
Artificial Moral Agency in Technoethics
This chapter will argue that artificial agents created or synthesized by technologies such as artificial life (ALife), artificial intelligence (AI), and in robotics present unique challenges to the
Can artificial intelligences be moral agents?
Incompleteness of moral choice and evolution towards fully autonomous AI

TLDR
This article reflects the main argument that if a task requires some form of moral authority when it is performed by humans, its full automation, transferring the same task to autonomous machines, platforms, and AI algorithms, necessarily implies the transfer of moral competence.
A Conceptual and Computational Model of Moral Decision Making in Human and Artificial Agents
TLDR
This study discusses how LIDA, an AGI model of human cognition, can be adapted to model both affective and rational features of moral decision making and describes how the LIDA model helps integrate emotions into the human decision-making process.
How do we Develop Ethically Aware AI ?
The increasing pervasiveness, autonomy and complexity of artificially intelligent technologies in human society has challenged the traditional conception of moral responsibility. To this extent, it

From the Publisher: Artificial Morality shows how to build moral agents that succeed in competition with amoral agents. Peter Danielson's agents deviate from the received theory of rational choice.
The Cog Project
TLDR
A humanoid robot at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory is meant to be able to emulate human functionality and is particularly interested in using it as vehicle to understand how humans work, by trying to combine many theories from artificial intelligence, cognitive science, physiology and neuroscience.
Hal's Legacy: 2001's Computer as Dream and Reality
TLDR
Inspired by HAL's self-proclaimed birth date, HAL's Legacy reflects upon science fiction's most famous computer and explores the relationship between science fantasy and technological fact.
Affective Computing
TLDR
Key issues in affective computing, " computing that relates to, arises from, or influences emotions", are presented and new applications are presented for computer-assisted learning, perceptual information retrieval, arts and entertainment, and human health and interaction.
The Evolution of Cooperation
TLDR
A model is developed based on the concept of an evolutionarily stable strategy in the context of the Prisoner's Dilemma game to show how cooperation based on reciprocity can get started in an asocial world, can thrive while interacting with a wide range of other strategies, and can resist invasion once fully established.

TLDR
If the meaning of the words “machine” and “think” are to be found by examining how they are commonly used it is difficult to escape the conclusion that the meaning and the answer to the question, “Can machines think?” is to be sought in a statistical survey such as a Gallup poll.
The cog project: building a humanoid robot
TLDR
This chapter gives a background on the methodology that the authors have used in investigations, highlights the research issues that have been raised during this project, and provides a summary of both the current state of the project and the long-term goals.
