The French team brings an expertise on care, fairness, environmental ethics, and “Ethics by design”, i.e. a methodology that enables ethics to be embodied in the whole design process.

The Singaporean team brings an expertise on the ethics of autonomy, moral psychology, French philosophy and urban sociology, with research experience in smart cities and drones.

With the unique combination of expertise and their connections to international networks, WP6 will develop meta-level principles and processes for thinking ethically about first and foremost the human and the loop, and create new ethical understandings to the binary interactions of humans-machines, humans-space, place-environment, and humans-humans, for today’s and future generations.

Abstract

WP6 develops a modern provisional ethics based on the ethics of autonomy and care that uses the reflective equilibrium approach to guide and recalibrate decisions surrounding the development of AI-innovations when there is uncertain knowledge about the nature of AI and its impact. It will approach AI-innovations by taking reflexive considerations of both the innovation process and its possible impact, as well as socio-cultural-political contexts to rebalance the ethical framework.

Upcoming Events

From 6 to 8 December 2023, WP6 will be organising a Symposium on “Ethics of autonomy in Smart Cities“.

The event will take place in the CREATE Tower, and registrations are now open!

This research is supported by the National Research Foundation, Prime Minister’s Office, Singapore under its Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) programme.

CREATE is an international collaboratory housing research centres set up by top universities. At CREATE, researchers from diverse disciplines and backgrounds work closely together to perform cutting-edge research in strategic areas of interest, for translation into practical applications leading to positive economic and societal outcomes for Singapore. The interdisciplinary research centres at CREATE focus on four areas of interdisciplinary thematic areas of research, namely human systems, energy systems, environmental systems and urban systems.
