ABSTRACT
<p>At a workshop in March 2010, an interdisciplinary group of philosophers, computer scientists, practitioners, and lawyers started to develop a short statement about the ethics of developing computer systems. The statement has grown into an evolving document about moral responsibility. It's not a Wiki, but 50 people, including academics and IT professionals, have already helped write it. An early working title was "Principles Governing Moral Responsibility for Computing Artifacts," but most of the time, it's just called "The Rules."</p>
