This paper uses our cyber-bullying research conductedon Polish students to presents the problems of cyber-bullying for Machine Ethics research. Focused on both Internet culture and hate phenomena, we present the challenges for a dynamic moral algorithm including but not limited to: irony and steganography of picture-text context. Final piece of this paper presents ideas for future work inovercoming highlighted inpediments.

In this paper we present our work on creating a database of emoticons – face marks widely used to convey emotions in text-based online communication. The database is created by gathering emoticons from numerous dictionaries of face marks and online jargon. The inconsistencies in emotion classification provided by various dictionaries are solved by processing them with an affect analysis system developed previously. Having the emoticon database annotated automatically this way, we extract patterns from it patterns of semantic areas of emoticons, such as ―eyes‖ and ―mouths‖. Finally, we perform annotation of the semantic areas based on co-occurrence statistics and the theory of kinesics.

We begin this paper with revisiting the differences between descriptive and normative approach to ethics and challenge the usefulness of the latter for the field of machine ethics. We continue this reasoning and present our insights on previous trends in this field and highlight the need for a change in the approach. We highlight the need for an experimental approach to machine ethics by introducing a moral reasoning system based on Aristotelian identification of civic rhetoric with a common-sense base. And present it as a step forward in the machine ethics research bypassing theoretical disputes between philosophers. We finish this paper with the introduction to the CAMILLA project for web-crawling algorithm as the first step towards creating an Aristotelian explicit moral agent.

Machine Moral Development: Moral Reasoning Agent Based on Wisdom of Web-Crowd and Emotions

We begin this paper by putting forward the topic of human conscience as a metaphysical experience. We present our ongoing research on moral reasoning categories and make first attempts to verify their usefulness in creating an agent with a dynamic algorithm for moral reasoning. Our approach assumes creating such an agent basing on two factors, the idea of wisdom of web-crowd and emotion-buttressed reasoning. We present a novel approach to the idea of ethics. Instead of the usual non-cognitive one we propose a model with computational structure and discuss applicability of this approach. Finally, we present some of the first results of a preliminary experiment performed to prove our approach.
