PHILOSOPHERS, ENGINEERS, AND THE DESIGN OF AMAS
The architectures for artificial moral agents fall within two broad approaches: the top‐down imposition of an ethical theory, and the bottom‐up building of systems that aim at goals or standards that may or may not be specified in explicitly theoretical terms. How might moral decision making specifically be implemented in (ro)bots? This chapter outlines what philosophers and engineers have to offer each other and describes a basic framework for top‐down and bottom‐up approaches to the design of artificial moral agents.
