Artificial Morality: Virtuous Robots for Virtual Games by Peter Danielson

By Peter Danielson

Man made Morality indicates tips on how to construct ethical brokers that reach festival with amoral brokers. Peter Danielson's brokers deviate from the bought idea of rational selection. they're certain by means of ethical rules and speak their rules to others. The relevant thesis of the ebook is that those ethical brokers are extra winning in an important checks, and consequently rational.

Artificial Morality is galvanized by way of synthetic intelligence. the answer offered to the matter of rationality and morality is confident: the construction of higher ethical robots. Danielson makes use of robots paired in summary video games that version social difficulties, comparable to environmental pollutants, which gift co-operators yet much more those that reap the benefits of others' constraint. it's proven that virtuous, now not vicious, robots do higher in those digital video games.

Example text

23 I propose to use Gauthier’s term for the 16 RATIONALITY AND MORALITY received theory that dictates preference maximizing choice at every point: straightforward maximization (SM). There is more than terminological clarity involved in this matter. The theory of rational choice is an important theory that provides powerful tools for thinking about interaction. It is not clear to what extent my revisionist account can be integrated into this theory. It seems better to mark the differences from the start, to issue a warning, as it were, against importing ideas and procedures from the received theory too easily.

First, I will avoid any appeal to a social agreement or contract. In this way my theory will be more radically individualistic than Hobbes’ or Gauthier’s. I will begin with individual agents and may never reach a social agreement of all the agents. Indeed this lack of agreement, by constantly reminding us of the alternative(s) to and within morality, will keep us focused on the crucial problems of compliance and toleration. This difference will come out especially in Chapter 7, where I discuss ways that agents might co-ordinate their strategies.

Can we introduce morality without postulating any features either of the world or of persons over and above those which naturally suggest themselves if we think of human beings as 28 FUNDAMENTAL JUSTIFICATION AND GAMES animals with this one peculiar and distinctive capacity—a capacity that brings with it, on the surface, only the apparatus of rationality? (Gauthier 1988a, pp. 1–3) While I welcome this defence of naturalism in a broad methodological sense, Gauthier’s claims go far beyond the conjecture that moral theory can make do without supernatural motivation.
