Moral Competence in Computational Architectures for Robots

Research corner

Moral competence in Computational Architectures for Robots is a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI), awarded in 2014 by the Department of Defense (via the Office of Naval Research) to a team of researchers from Tufts University, Brown University, RPI, Georgetown University, and Yale University. Its purpose is to identify the logical, cognitive, and social underpinnings of human moral competence, model those principles of competence in human-robot interactions, and demonstrate novel computational means by which robots can reason and act ethically in the face of complex, practical challenges.
