You ought to pay tax, but if you don’t, then you should keep it a secret: Ten challenges for deontic logic in AILeon van der Torre (University of Luxembourg)

Deontic logic formalizes normative reasoning in terms of logical relations between facts, obligations, prohibitions and permissions.
It is used to reason about intelligent agents, to represent legal knowledge, and most recently, for explainable AI.
In this overview talk, Leon van der Torre will discuss ten challenges from the deontic logic literature, from the AI point of view that deontic logic may be seen as a branch of non-monotonic logic.

The lecture series on research talks by the visiting professors of the Vienna PhD School of Informatics can also be credited as an elective course for students of master programs of computer science: LVA 195.072 Current Trends in Computer Science.
