Importance of Contextual Knowledge in Artificial Moral Agents Development

In this paper we underline the importance of knowledge in artificial moral agents and describe our experience-focused approach which could help existing algorithms go beyond proofs of concept level and be tested for generality and real world usability. We point out the difficulties with implementation of current methods and their lack of contextual knowledge hindering simulations in more realistic, every-day life situations. The idea is to prioritize resources for predictions and the process of automatic knowledge acquisition for an oracle to be used by moral agents, both human and artificial.
