We are on the verge of constructing artificial systems that will rival or surpass human minds in many ways.

How can we make sure that AI systems will respect our ethical principles when they make decisions at speeds mere humans can’t achieve or on the basis of reasoning that mere human can't comprehend?

Defeasible Inference in Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence

The workshop brings together researchers from philosophy, computer science, and allied disciplines who work on non-monotonic logics and defeasible inference.

The idea is to connect traditional philosophical reflections on these topics–defeat in epistemology, prima facie duties in ethics, and belief revision in philosophy of science–

with the rich tradition of non-monotonic logics in computer science and artificial intelligence, including default logic and logic programming.
