    Abstract

    The question of whether AI can or should be afforded moral agency or patiency is not one amenable to simple discovery or reasoning, because we as societies are constantly constructing our artefacts, including our ethical systems. Here I briefly examine the origins and nature of ethical systems in a variety of species, then propose a definition of morality that facilitates the debate concerning not only whether it is ethical for us to afford moral agency and patiency to AI, but also whether it is ethical for us to build AI we should so afford.
