  • Abstract
  • The inclusion of autonomous robots among everyday human environments has suggested that these robots will be facing ethical decisions regarding trade-offs where machines will choose some human attributes over the attributes of other humans. We argue in this paper that on a regular instance, algorithms for such decisions should not only be deterministic but instead, the decision will be better framed as an optimal mixed strategy in the sense of Nash equilibria in game theory.
