From Ethics of Artificial Intelligence to Computational Ethics - Focus on the Need for Non-Monotonicity
Usually, in Science Fiction, robot stories end badly: in almost every case, the artificial slaves designed with AI techniques to make human life easier by reducing the burden of work, dominate humanity, because they gain in dignity, through their work, what humans lose, through their idleness. In order to prevent such a nightmare, we must ensure that the machines act properly and they deserve our trust. For this reason, it is crucial to introduce ethical values into the programming of automatic machines, so that they do not trap us and they act in accordance with the rules of duty we give them. However, it's not an easy task to ensure that machines follow moral rules, because ethical reasoning is not only deontic; it has to take into account the known consequences of actions, which means that it has to model causality. It also has to overcome conflicts between values that must all be considered simultaneously, such as protection of privacy and transparency, which are both legitimate but conflicting in many situations. Our talk will focus on this point and show how the use of Answer Set Programming (ASP) techniques helps to solve this problem by modeling non-monotonic reasoning.
Jean-Gabriel Ganascia is Emeritus Professor of Computer Science at Sorbonne University, senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France, EurAI - European Association for Artificial Intelligence - fellow and member of the LIP6 (Laboratory of Computer Science of the Paris 6). In addition, he chairs many Ethics Committees and he is member of the French Ethics Committee for the Digital.
