Moral imitation: Can an algorithm really be ethical?

Publication of the month, December 2020

Over the coming months we’ll be showcasing the work of CRISP researchers in our new feature, ‘Publication of the month’. Although 2020 wiped out research for a lot of academics, the CRISP doctoral students have continued to be very productive. This month we look at St Andrews PhD student Anuj Puri’s new paper ‘Moral Imitation: Can an algorithm really be ethical?’ published in the Rutgers Law Record.
