The avataResponsibility project focuses on ascriptions of agency and moral responsibility in emergent avatar communities. Personal avatars can be coupled with AI technologies to the extent that human users do not control them in real time. This raises new challenges in terms of agency ascriptions, moral responsibility, and (dis)enhancement of human capabilities.

  • How do we conceptualise avatar agency and moral responsibility at the intersection of individual, organisational and AI entities?
  • In what ways do personal avatars (dis)enhance human moral behaviour and judgement?
  • What are the elements of a normative framework to assign moral responsibility within emerging avatar communities?
