My main research interest is adapting Lawrence Kohlberg’s theory of stages of moral development for Machine Ethics Research. Developed since 2009, project has entered the 4th stage of the theory, so called Authority and social-order maintaining orientation. That is why making a machine recognize actions as crimes is my current scope of interest.
Secondly, in accordance with the theory, I want a machine to be able to justify it judgement based on web-mined opinions and emotion extraction. To obtain this goal and develop Human-Computer Interaction, I use Natural Language Processing methods, mainly: Python and NLTK.
