"Researchers at Duke University are trying to understand whether Artificial Intelligence can be designed to help human morality and decision making. An ethicist, a neuroscientist and a computer scientist are working together on a new project funded by the Templeton World Charity Foundation. Its aim is to see whether morality embedded into computer algorithms can assist physicians and hospital administrators make more informed decisions about who gets a kidney donation. The final decision will always be with the humans. If it works in the hospital setting, project leaders think AI and Morality can be expanded in the future to other arenas to help humans make better decisions."
