This paper describes a framework for ethical analysis of the practice of computer Modeling & Simulation (M&S). Each of the authors presents a computational model as a case study and offers an ethical analysis by applying the philosophical, scientific, and practical components of the framework. Each author also provides a constructive...

Social simulations gain strength when agent behaviour can (1) represent human behaviour and (2) be explained in understandable terms. Agents with values and norms lead to simulation results that meet human needs for explanations, but have not been tested on their ability to reproduce human behaviour. This paper compares empirical data on...

Understanding the social contexts in which actions and interactions take place is of utmost importance for planning one’s goals and activities. People use social practices as means to make sense of their environment, assessing how that context relates to past, common experiences, culture and capabilities. Social practices can therefore...

This article reports the findings of AI4People, an Atomium—EISMD initiative designed to lay the foundations for a “Good AI Society”. We introduce the core opportunities and risks of AI for society; present a synthesis of five ethical principles that should undergird its development and adoption; and offer 20 concrete recommendations—to assess...

An institution typically comprises constitutive rules, which give shape and meaning to social interactions and regulative rules, which prescribe agent behaviour in the society. Regulative rules guide social interaction, in particular when they are coupled with reward and punishment regulations that are enforced for (non-)compliance. Institution...

Institutions regulate societies. Comprising Searle's constitutive counts-as rules, "A counts-as B in context C", an institution ascribes from brute and institutional facts (As), a social reality comprising institutional facts (Bs) conditional on the social reality (contexts Cs). When brute facts change an institution evolves from one social...

Nowadays, public debates often take place on social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter and can be characterized as asynchronous, protracted and ill-structured. The Massive Open Online Deliberation (MOOD) platform aims to structure these debates. Essential is that the platform can differentiate between the moral acceptability and the social...

In system dynamics modeling, differential equations have been used as the basic mathematical operator. Using difference equation to build system dynamics models instead of differential equation, can be insightful for studying small organizations or systems with micro behavior. In this paper we explain how we can use difference equations to build...

This paper presents a qualitative study of the supportive behavior of an Embodied Conversational Agent (ECA) that provides social support to cyberbullying victims. The results indicate that social support is conveyed. In addition, we demonstrate a method that can be utilized to evaluate embodied agents for vulnerable target audiences (e.g.,...

In multi-agent organizations, contractual obligations and prohibitions are important for governing autonomous agents. However, agents may only wish to participate in an organization if the contracts they engage in respect and satisfy their policies specifying how the agent may be used, we call these use policies and they specify what norms may...

It is hard, if not impossible, to assume anything about agents’ behavior in a society with heterogeneous agents from different sources. Organizations are used to restrict and guide the agents’ actions such that the global objectives of the society are achieved. We discuss how agents can be supported to include organizational objectives and...
