Call for Chapters: Handbook of Research on Machine Ethics and Morality
Editor: Steven John Thompson, University of Maryland Global Campus
Proposals Submission Deadline: November 2, 2019
Full Chapters Due: March 1, 2020
Submission Date: June 24, 2020
This book is dedicated to expert research topics, and analyses of ethics-related inquiry, at the machine ethics and morality level: key players, benefits, problems, policies, and strategies. Gathering some of the leading voices that recognize and understand the complexities and intricacies of human-machine ethics early on in this phenomenon provides a resourceful compendium to be accessed by decision-makers and theorists concerned with identification and adoption of machine ethics initiatives, leading to needed policy adoption and reform for human-machine entities, their technologies, and their societal and legal obligations. The book encompasses theory and practice sections for each topical component of important areas of human-machine ethics both in existence today, and prospective for the future. Yet, human-machine ethics is not a futuristic matter; it is everpresent, here and now – thanks largely to ongoing technological advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and synthetic biology, among other allied fields.
Up-to-date, state-of-the-art perspective on advancement of definitions, terms, policies, philosophies, and relevant determinants related to human-machine ethics and morality. It must be published in order to provide a comprehensive compendium that exists to help lay the foundation for referencing early twenty-first century research into the present and future phenomenon of human-machine ethics and morality. It may hold promise for decision- and policy-makers as the crucial aspects of machine ethics become an elusive and challenging act for governments and societies to regulate and control moving forward into the next decade. The book is an anthology of wholistic, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary approaches to the field of machine ethics and morality.
Some of the advantages to this publication include the global diversity of expert speakers and voices, and their pragmatic, if not at times prophetic, topical perspectives. Popular AI ethics and robot ethics inquiries may be the focus of many existing titles or projects, yet the realm of human-machine ethics and morality provides a locus for broader inclusion. While some related topical writings and projects may exist scattered across the WWW, having a plethora of relevant, critical expert authors under the all-encompassing umbrella of machine ethics and morality will ensure a strong, vibrant, and important foundational ethics resource for students, professors, scholars, ethicists, philosophers, scientists, lawyers, politicians, and key government lawmakers.
