Article
Although many lean higher education efforts have focussed on administrative/support services and processes, only a few actual applications of lean methods have been meant for teaching, which is the core business of higher education. The absence of experiments and research in these contexts has challenged us to apply lean to our own undergraduate co...
Article
Lean Six Sigma is applied in a wide range of economic domains ranging from industry to services to healthcare. These are all domains that have markedly different structures. Recently a set of papers has appeared indicating that the successes in applying Lean Six Sigma to new domains such as government, healthcare and education are falling short of...
Article
Full-text available
I argue that the problem of `moral luck' is an unjustly neglected topic within Computer Ethics. This is unfortunate given that the very nature of computer technology, its `logical malleability', leads to ever greater levels of complexity, unreliability ...
Article
Full-text available
Witnessing a growing number of increasingly autonomous software agents we interact with or that operate on our behalf under circumstances that are not fully known in advance, we argue that there is a need to provide these agents with moral reasoning capabilities. Looking at the current literature on behaviour constraints and multi-agent (software)...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Our lives are formed by the deep, moral values we hold dear. In the design of products we give expression to these deeper, often moral values. And, we make sure that the products we buy do not offend our moral values. This is mostly done unconsciously/implicitly. We argue that giving explicit attention to the values we hold dear will increase the q...
Article

Philosophy can benefit from experiments performed in a laboratory for philosophical experimentation (SophoLab). To illus- trate the power of Experimental Computational Philosophy, we set up and ran several experiments on a part of Harsanyi's theory on utili- tarianism. During decomposition and translation of this theory in the experimental setting...
Article
Full-text available
Constructing artificial moral agents serves at least two purposes: one, better understanding of moral reasoning, and, two, increasing our trust and confidence in creating autonomous agents acting on our behalf. When constructing agents we must identify what kind of agent we are trying to implement acknowledging still severe restrictions in both our...
Article
In this paper we present an executable approach to model interactions between agents that involve sensitive, privacy-related information. The approach is formal and based on deontic, epistemic and action logic. It is conceptually related to the Belief-Desire-Intention model of Bratman. Our approach uses the concept of sphere as developed by Waltzer...
Article
It is generally assumed that sustainable development and economic growth are compatible objectives. Because this assumption has been left unspecified, the debate on sustainability and growth has remained vague and confusing. Attempts at specification not only involve clarification of the interrelation of the two concepts, but also, we argue, requir...

This paper presents a vision on the importance of values and ethical aspects in web science. We create(d) the Internet, but now the Internet (technology) is shaping our world increasingly: the way we experience, interact, transact, conduct business et cetera. The Internet is ubiquitous and vital to many aspects of our society; it is substituting so...
Article
Full-text available
The Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is increasingly used as decision support method in concurrent innovation projects with multiple stakeholders. AHP is welcomed for supporting procedural justice, which regards transparency and fairness of decisions. This is useful for policy settings, with diverse stakeholder interests, for prioritization quest...
Article
In this book, the extend to which we can equip artificial agents with moral reasoning capacity is investigated. Attempting to create artificial agents with moral reasoning capabilities challenges our understanding of morality and moral reasoning to its utmost. It also helps philosophers dealing with the inherent complexity of modern organizations....
