Robotics

Can we make a moral machine? Is it possible to build a robot capable of deciding or moderating its actions on the basis of ethical rules? Three years ago the idea seemed impossible, but Alan Winfield gives insights into why it is indeed possible today. He also sheds light on the future of robotics.
