A care robot design tool

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

How does one translate ethics into care robot behaviours? This is a machine ethics question. To answer the question better, this work suggests that care robots should have elements of both implicit and explicit ethical agency. That is, a robot should have unchanging, goal-driven behaviours, as well as a list of adaptive behaviours to choose from to best respect each individual patient’s values along the way. To design an implicit-explicit agent one must distinguish between intrinsic and extrinsic patient care values in every care practice. Each type of value can be found in professional ethics and care ethics respectively. To identify those values and translate them into components and behaviours a design tool is needed, this work offers the value tool.
