Research project The project study theorizes the ethical and legal implications of various forms of autonomous technologies.
The project is concerned with the agency of digital technologies – such as robots, smart houses, ambient intelligence, and nanotechnology, and other digitally-controlled “smart” artifacts – as well as software agents such as bots, computer viruses, and zombie computers to the extent that they can cause real material and legal harms to people and computers. This work focused on the fundamental legal and moral concepts of responsibility, agency and justice as they apply to distributed and autonomous technological systems. A key area of research is the military use of robotics and other autonomous technologies.
