ISSN or ISBN
Deontic conflicts are situations where you are "damned if you do and damned if you don't" - where each of the available options will lead to an undesirable outcome or violation. How do people reason about deontic conflicts? In this paper we use the experimental technique of conjoint analysis to uncover the relevant decision factors that people use in such situations. Applications are to programming of robots that interact with humans in social situations and which may face deontic conflicts.
