Closing conference REINS project

Responsible Intelligent Systems: Concepts, Practices and Formal Models
11-13 February 2018, Utrecht, the Netherlands

In this symposium we look back at some of the results of the REINS project on responsible intelligent systems and look forward at new routes of investigation for responsible AI in general. The starting point of the REINS project was to develop logic-based modelling techniques to enable responsibility checking of artificial agents. That goal evolved over time into a more general objective to understand the concepts involved in the modelling of responsibility, and to find the formal models to characterize them. Our focus on formalization has been the main thread throughout the project, as it paves the way for a more precise and operationalizable understanding of the concepts involved in responsibility, machine ethics and deontic reasoning. We believe that our model-driven approach to the problem of responsible AI has a higher chance of success than any data-driven approach. However, the possible interplay between both approaches is one of the new future directions we are interested in. For this final symposium of the project, we invited philosophers, logicians and specialists from concrete application areas for responsible intelligent systems (the military, the police).
