This publication comprises the complaints of the overseas convention on robotic Ethics, held in Lisbon on October 23 and 24, 2015. The convention supplied a multidisciplinary discussion board for discussing primary and evolving matters bearing on security and ethics that experience arisen in quite a few contexts the place robot applied sciences are being utilized. The papers are meant to advertise the formula of extra specified safeguard criteria and moral frameworks for the speedily altering box of robot functions. The convention was once held at Pavilhão do Conhecimento/Ciência Viva in Lisbon and taken jointly prime researchers and representatives, selling a discussion that mixes diverse views and reports to reach at manageable ideas for moral difficulties within the context of robotics.

The convention subject matters incorporated yet weren't constrained to rising moral, protection, criminal and societal difficulties within the following domains:

• Service/Social Robots: Robots appearing projects in human environments and regarding shut human-robot interactions in daily families; robots for schooling and leisure; and robots hired in aged and different care applications

• cellular Robots: Self-driving automobiles, self sustaining plane, trains, automobiles and drones

• Robots utilized in medication and for healing purposes

• Robots utilized in surveillance and armed forces functions

Example text

While one could use a sleep command, for reporting and analysis purposes, I will assume that the robot logs that no ticket was issued with a logNoTicket(); command. Thus issueTicket(); is the imperative that acts and logNoTicket(); the imperative that does not act. Such a pair I refer to as an act and inverse act. The rule for the inverse act for a speeding camera can be formalized thus: all u all x ( -Speeding (x) -> DUTY (u, logNoTicket (x) ) ). In simple normative cases that involve making a decision on the basis of a single norm, the extra burden of a theorem prover and translation of IF/THEN statements into predicate logic or a more elaborate deontic logic such as that of Horty (2001) is arguably more trouble than it is worth.

2013; Johnson et al. 2011, 2014). But there may be some cases where we want them to be disobedient. Take for instance a robot receiving conflicting instructions: it is asked to perform an action that threatens a human’s safety. In such situations, we may prefer robots that make their own choices and are not strictly obedient. Such robots require the capability to reason autonomously about the situations they are confronted with, rather than reactively following all instructions they receive. For this reason, we expect that a robot that is occasionally disobedient for a good reason will be perceived as more autonomous.

Upon asking the respondents whether filling out the questionnaire made any sense to them, eight of them indicated that it made sense to them to rate the autonomy of the systems presented in the questionnaire. Yet four respondents indicated that the point of the questionnaire was not entirely clear to them. 5 Discussion and Conclusion In this paper we presented a study on how system characteristics affect people’s perception of a robot’s autonomy. Even though the data obtained in this research do not enable us to draw any definite conclusions, our study provides evidence for our assumption that perceived autonomy is composed of multiple factors.
