With the increasing dependence on autonomous operating agents
and robots the need for ethical machine behavior rises. This paper
presents a moral reasoner that combines connectionism,
utilitarianism and ethical theory about moral duties. The moral
decision-making matches the analysis of expert ethicists in the
health domain. This may be useful in many applications, especially
where machines interact with humans in a medical context.
Additionally, when connected to a cognitive model of emotional
intelligence and affective decision making, it can be explored how
moral decision making impacts affective behavior.
