RLDM Workshop on Moral Decision Making (MoDeM)

Held at the 4th Multidisciplinary Conference on Reinforcement Learning and Decision Making (RLDM 2019)

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada


While moral psychologists and neuroscientists are discovering the processes underlying human moral judgment and decision making, some artificial intelligence researchers are contemplating how to develop machines that can reason about morality and make moral decisions. The 1st RLDM Workshop on Moral Decision Making (MoDeM) will bring together researchers from across the diverse RLDM community to discuss recent advancements in these fields and find opportunities for cross-talk and collaboration on this sometimes-contentious topic. Activities planned include invited and contributed talks, a debate, and a small-group discussion session.

We are seeking abstracts on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Insights into the processes underlying human moral cognition
  • (Model-free and model-based) reinforcement learning in moral decision-making
  • Computational models of human moral decision-making and judgment
  • Developing moral reasoning and decision-making capabilities in autonomous agents
  • Evolution of moral decision-making
