Emotionally intelligent caredroids that act morally good

When healthcare robots interact with patients, we need to ensure that these machines take into account their emotions and behave in an ethically sound way. At Border Sessions, Matthijs Pontier will introduce us to Alice, an emotionally intelligent ‘caredroid’ that can make ethical decisions. She can find the balance between several moral principles and trade negative autonomy for positive autonomy. This is useful in many applications, for example when robots need to find a balance between nagging and stimulating a patient to make a healthier choice.
