By Mark A. Brown (auth.), Alessio Lomuscio, Donald Nute (eds.)

This quantity includes the workshop court cases of DEON 2004, the 7th foreign Workshop on Deontic good judgment in machine technological know-how. The DEON workshop sequence goals at bringing jointly researchers drawn to subject matters - lated to using deontic common sense in laptop technological know-how. It commonly promotes examine within the courting among normative strategies and computing device technological know-how, arti?cial intelligence, supplier conception, and legislation. as well as those subject matters, DEON 2004 positioned distinct emphasis at the courting among deontic good judgment and multi-agent structures. The workshop was once held in Madeira, Portugal, on 26–28 might 2004. This v- ume contains all 15 papers provided on the workshop, in addition to abstracts from the 2 striking invited audio system we have been privileged to host: Prof Mark Brown (Syracuse collage, USA), and Prof Mike Wooldridge (University of Liverpool, UK). The reader will ?nd that the subjects lined span from t- oretical investigations on deontic thoughts and their formalisation in common sense, to using deontic formalisms to ensure and cause approximately multi-agent platforms functions. We think this makes it a well-balanced and fascinating quantity. we want to thank all those that contributed to this workshop, and particularly the authors of the submitted papers and the referees. They have been all pressured to paintings on a really tight timescale to make this quantity a reality.

When is a separation of powers as in trias politica a necessary precondition for norm creation to be efficient? , Kantian) perspective. We assume that norms are only accepted if they are respected by the other agents, and therefore sometimes sanctions are needed. Informally, it consists of three steps visualized in Figure 1. Individual agents have desires, which turn into group (or joint, or social) goals. A group goal is individualized by a social norm. The individual agents accept the norm, together with its associated sanctions and rewards, because they recognize that it serves to achieve their desires the cycle started with.
