In this article, we provide a framework for responsibility attribution based on the amount of autonomy and automation involved in AI based cyber-physical systems. Our approach en- ables traceability of anomalous behaviors back to the responsible agents, be they human or software, allowing us to identify and separate the ”responsibility” of the decision-making software from human responsibility. This provides us with a framework to accommodate the ethical ”responsibility” of the software for AI based cyber-physical systems that will be deployed in the future, underscoring the role of ethics as an important extra-functional property. Finally, this systematic approach makes apparent the need for rigorous communication protocols between different actors associated with the development and operation of cyber- physical systems that further identifies the ethical challenges involved in the form of group responsibilities.
