LIRa-related event: Reasoning about Responsible Agency in AI

As they become increasingly integrated into our lives, autonomous systems are used to execute more and more tasks that have both normative and epistemic relevance.  This has led to a growing literature in machine ethics aiming at addressing the question of how to build autonomous systems that can, first, acquire and properly reason about normative and observational information, and, second, use this information to interact with other agents and the environment in a way that is responsible and, at the same time, explainable. 

The goal of this workshop is to bring together philosophers, logicians, and computer scientists in order to explore these topics from an interdisciplinary perspective. 

The workshop is associated with the project Responsible Artificial Agency: A Logical Perspective, funded by the RPA Human(e) AI  University of Amsterdam.
