L’usage croissant des systèmes multi-agents dans divers domaines d’application soulève la nécessité de concevoir des agents capables de prendre des décisions s’appuyant sur des principes éthiques. Notre objectif est d’équiper les agents de capacités de raisonnement éthique pour permettre la mise en place de coopérations fondées sur l’éthique. Ce tr...

Dans le domaine de la décision autonome, la prise en compte de la dimension éthique des décisions est généralement centrée sur l'agent, en laissant de côté sa dimension sociale. Or, l'éthique semble être une notion centrale influençant les interactions sociales entre individus. Dans cet article, nous proposons un modèle permettant à des agents de s...
Article
The increasingly current and future presence of multi-agent systems in various areas leads us to ask many questions about the ethics of their decisions. Indeed, decisions that these systems must make sometimes require consideration of ethical concepts, both as an individual entity and a member of an organization. This problem, often considered as a...

The increasing use of multi-Agent technologies in various areas raises the necessity of designing agents that are able to take decisions based on ethical principles. More and more works propose such approaches. However, those systems consider mainly an agent-centered perspective, letting aside the fact that agents are in interaction with other arti...

The increasing use of multi-agent technologies in various areas raises the necessity of designing agents that judge ethical behaviors in context. This is why several works integrate ethical concepts in agents' decision making processes. However , those approaches consider mainly an agent-centered perspective, letting aside the fact that agents are...

L'utilisation croissante des technologies multi-agents pour le développement de systèmes socio-techniques révèle de nombreux verrous, dont ceux liés à l'éthique des décisions autonomes que de tels systèmes peuvent être amenés à prendre. Ce problème, souvent considéré dans une perspective centrée sur l'agent, est ici abordé d'un point de vue du coll...

The objectives of the eThicAa project is twofold: (I) definition of what should be a moral autonomous agent and a system of moral autonomous agents, and (ii) definition and resolution of ethical conflicts that could occur 1) inside one moral agent, 2) between one moral agent and the (moral) rules of the system it belongs to, 3) between one moral agent and a human operator or user, 4) between several artificial (moral) agents including or not human agents. When several agents are involved this may result in one agent taking over the (decision or action) authority from the others. See ethicaa.org for more information.
