Research Title

Experimental Methods for Moral Behaviour Analysis in Human-Robot Interaction

Research Summary

My research focuses on those human-robot interactions which trigger the necessity of some level of moral capabilities on robot-side. My aim is to investigate, develop, and test theories and applications, to imbue robots with such capabilities, facilitating scalable and robust autonomous moral decision making in artificial agents.

Research interests:

  • Machine Ethics
  • Computational Morality
  • Human-Robot interaction
  • Probabilities and epistemic justification
