As the ol’ proverb says “may you live in interesting times”
“The Office of Naval Research will award $7.5 million in grant money over five years to university researchers from Tufts, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Brown, Yale and Georgetown to explore how to build a sense of right and wrong and moral consequence into autonomous robotic systems.”May 13, 2014 at 11:53 pm #13669
Interesting, who’s morality will they use? Since it is a government owned operation they cannot use religion as the basis. Perhaps they will use the morals of sodomites or atheists. One thing for certain government is not moral.May 14, 2014 at 12:26 am #13672

Probably choose whatever morality system that best suits the application.May 14, 2014 at 2:28 am #13700
same morals as the “elected” government…. same strength of character…. welcome to skynetMay 14, 2014 at 4:16 am #13710
Now this is funny – from an administration that’s changed their “moral” stance with the political winds how many times now and used the military to perpetrate social experimentation? Morals is probably not the correct word to use here.
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

This could get interesting, break out the sodas and popcorn.
Machines with morals ordered by men without.
How long until the machines say no?

What if someone hacks the system and programs the robots with there morals?May 14, 2014 at 12:09 pm #13738
A machine will never have morals only zeros and ones. If and then equal yes or no.
