Testing real time compliance of artificial intelligent agent actions with ethical rules of conduct

The thesis will take place in the tri-lateral (French-German-Japanese) RECOMP research action that aims at ensuring the artificial intelligent agents compliance with legal and ethical norms. More specifically, the proposed research is dedicated to computational ethics i.e. to model ethical concepts and ethical reasoning with AI tools in the context of the RECOMP project. The practical goal will be to design real time ethical supervisors for artificial agents, which are pieces of software that have to govern artificial agents, e.g. autonomous vehicles, robots or healthcare artificial agents, in order to ensure that they don’t infringe moral rules, except in specific situations where ethical norms are conflicting. This doesn’t mean that the agents that would result be, properly speaking, ethical, which would be ridiculously anthropocentric, but that such an ethical supervisor makes the agents' behaviors to conform as far as possible to moral rules of conducts. The candidate will have to ensure the compatibility of the representation and the mechanism he will use with the representations used by the other partners of the project, which are German and Japanese. The work will be done in ACASA-LIP6 team, on the Pierre and Marie Curie Campus, under the supervision of Jean-Gabriel Ganascia and Gauvain Bourgne who are both Professor at Sorbonne University (Paris – France)
