WHAT IS INTELLIGENCE? 
1. Pragmatic definition of intelligence: “an intelligent 
system is a system with the ability to act 
appropriately (or make an appropriate choice or 
decision) in an uncertain environment.”   
– An appropriate action (or choice) is that which 
maximizes the probability of successfully achieving 
the mission goals (or the purpose of the system)   
2. Intelligence need not be at the human level

WHY ROBOT MORALITY ? 
? Robots are becoming 
technically extremely 
sophisticated. 
 
? The emerging robot is a 
machine with sensors, 
processors, and effectors able 
to perceive the environment, 
have situational awareness, 
make appropriate decisions, 
and act upon the environment  
? Various sensors: active and 
passive optical and ladar 
vision, acoustic, ultrasonic, 
RF, microwave, touch, etc. 
? Various effectors: propellers, 
wheels, tracks, legs, hybrids 
 
These robots live in human 
environment and can harm humans 
physically. 
Military unmanned vehicles are robots
