James H. Moor is the Daniel P. Stone Professor of Intellectual and Moral Philosophy at Dartmouth College. He earned his Ph.D. in 1972 from Indiana University.[1] Moor's 1985 paper entitled "What is Computer Ethics?" established him as one of the pioneering theoreticians in the field of computer ethics.[2] His research also includes study in philosophy of artificial intelligence, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and logic.

Moor was, until 2010, the editor-in-chief of Minds and Machines, a peer-reviewed academic journal covering artificial intelligence, philosophy, and cognitive science. [3]
