About the project

Intelligent technologies give rise to pressing philosophical and methodological challenges of theoretical importance and practical relevance. The present project explores such challenges in three areas: moral philosophy, legal philosophy, and methodology of sciences. Concerning moral philos ophy, providers of intelligent technologies are only partially aware of the ethical issues concerning the technology they develop, and only partially understand and control how intelligent technologies arrive at their decisions. This is often perceived as a threat to the possibility of moral culpability for the negative impact of intelligent technologies on the world. Concerning legal philosophy (and law), it is still largely an open question how intelligent technologies will be, and should be, regulated across different jurisdictions, and whether international law should step in. Finally, a methodological reflection of intelligent technologies and their normative problems is almost lacking. The project will set out to resolve these timely problems and consider notions that venture beyond single individuals and their backward-looking responsibility: collective culpability, vicarious liability, and forward-looking responsibility will be suggested as appropriate tools to overcome the above problems in moral and legal philosophy. The project will also methodologically assess the debate on intelligent technologies in moral and legal philosophy, and propose an exhaustive and exclusive classification of techno-responsibility gaps.
