"Rights and Duties of Autonomous Agents''
Workshop at ECAI 2012

August 27 or 28, 2012

Montpellier, France

https://rda2-2012.greyc.fr/

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The autonomous decision capability embedded in software or robot agents
is one of the major issues of Artificial Intelligence. It is a core
property for AI applications such as e-commerce, serious games, ambient
computing, social or collective robotics, companion robots, unmanned
vehicles.

Autonomous agents decide and act in a given context or environment and
under domain constraints, and possibly interact with other agents or
human beings e.g. to share tasks or to execute tasks on behalf of
others. It is thus important to define regulation and control mechanisms
to ensure sound and consistent behaviours both at the agent¹s individual
level and at the multi-agent level. Organisation models, conversation
policies, normative systems, constraints, logical frameworks address the
problem of how agents¹ autonomous behaviours should be controlled,
paving the way for formal or pragmatic definitions of agents¹ Rights and
Duties. The issue is all the more important as autonomous agents may
encounter new situations, evolve in open environments, interact with
agents based on different design principles, act on behalf of human
beings and share common resources. For instance: should an autonomous
agent take over the control from a human operator? under which
circumstances?

The aim of this workshop is to promote discussions and exchanges on the
different issues raised by autonomous agents¹ Rights and Duties and
models that can be proposed to represent and reason on Rights and Duties.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

We encourage contributions from the following research and application
areas:
€ Autonomous agents and privacy protection
€ Rights and duties for learning agents
€ Authority sharing between autonomous agents and human users or operators
€ Rights and duties of autonomous agents towards other agents; towards
human users or operators
€ Rights and duties of human users or operators towards autonomous
agents (especially robots)
€ Consistency, conflicts among rights and duties in multi-agent and
human/agent systems
€ Mutual intelligibility, explanations
€ Rights and duties vs failures
€ Rights and duties of autonomous agents and ethical issues
€ Control of autonomous agents within organisations, institutions,
normative systems
€ Sociology and law in the modelling of rights and duties: authority,
power, dependence, penalty, contracts
€ Trust and reputation for autonomous agents regulation
€ Emergence and evolution of rights and duties
€ Knowledge representation and models for rights and duties
€ Reasoning on rights and duties
€ Validation of rights and duties in autonomous agents
