The rapid growth in autonomous technology has made it possible to develop intelligent systems that can think and act like humans and can self-govern. Such intelligent systems can make ethical decisions on behalf of humans by learning their ethical preferences. When considering ethics in the decision-making process of autonomous systems that represent humans for ethical decision-making, the main challenge is agreement on ethical principles, as each human has its own ethical beliefs. To address this challenge, we propose a hybrid approach that combines human ethical principles with automated negotiation to resolve conflicts between autonomous systems and reach an agreement that satisfies the ethical beliefs of all parties involved.

Abstract

The rapid growth in autonomous technology has made it possible to develop intelligent systems that can think and act like humans and can self-govern. Such intelligent systems can make ethical decisions on behalf of humans by learning their ethical preferences. When considering ethics in the decision-making process of autonomous systems that represent humans for ethical decision-making, the main challenge is agreement on ethical principles, as each human has its own ethical beliefs. To address this challenge, we propose a hybrid approach that combines human ethical principles with automated negotiation to resolve conflicts between autonomous systems and reach an agreement that satisfies the ethical beliefs of all parties involved.
