Communication of the ACM Magazine 3/2020 Vol 63 # 3 Crowdsourcing Moral Machines

Communications of the ACM is the monthly journal of the Association for Computing Machinery. It was established in 1958, with Saul Rosen as its first managing editor. It is sent to all ACM members. Articles are intended for readers with backgrounds in all areas of computer science and information systems.
