Pre-emptive Robo Ethics

19 06 2006

An article from the Times (UK) explores what steps are being taken now to influence the ethics of robots that every day are becoming more and more sophisticated.

“Security, safety and sex are the big concerns,” said Henrik Christensen, a member of the Euron ethics group. How far should robots be allowed to influence people’s lives? How can accidents be avoided? Can deliberate harm be prevented? And what happens if robots turn out to be sexy?

It raises an interesting debate on how machines influence our lives today, and what that influence might look like in 20 years.
