Teaching Robots Right from Wrong Wendell Wallach, Colin Allen ... It remains to
be seen whether artificial environments that select among agents competing for
the accumulation of simple resources can produce anything like the moral
propensities of humans. ... In addition to the problem of getting the environment
right, a major problem facing the adaptation of evolutionary systems to the
emergence of AMAs is how to design a fitness function without explicitly applying
moral criteria.

Most futurists have a horrific track record precisely because they're always
predicting the worst possible outcomes (doomsayers from Thomas Malthus
onward), while those who predict that things will get better (the socalled
technoprophets going back to science fiction giant Jules Verne) are often far less
cited despite getting it right the vast majority of the time. But the good thing about
predicting disaster is that you only have to be right once to have your reputation
sealed (Richard ...

understanding the basic primate and (potential) common ancestor traits, we can
get a handle on the "starting point" of human evolution. This much seems sure:
humans evolved from a moderate-size, partly arboreal primate ... True, the right
animal subject no longer exists, and no one could live long enough to inspect the
results. But even setting those practicalities aside, there is a more fundamental
reason why the ...
