Matthias Scheutz

Autonomous robots will have to have the capability to make decisions on their own to varying degrees. In this chapter, I will make the plea for developing moral capabilities deeply integrated into the control architectures of such autonomous agents, for I shall argue that any ordinary decision-making situation from daily life can be turned into a morally charged decision-making situation.
