The Future of Moral Machines – NYTimes.com

…the topic of machine morality is here to stay. Even modest amounts of engineered autonomy make it necessary to outline some modest goals for the design of artificial moral agents. Modest because we are not talking about guidance systems for the Terminator or other technology that does not yet exist. Necessary, because as machines with limited autonomy operate more often than before in open environments, it becomes increasingly important to design a kind of functional morality that is sensitive to ethically relevant features of those situations.

An important article about an important issue, which until now mostly have been reflected upon by philosophers and science fiction authors, but which will become a major issue for our society not very far into the future.
