Do Thinking Machines Deserve Human Rights?

leave a comment »

It seems it first stems from the cuteness factor.  We don’t like to see cute thinks get hurt.  Then it goes a step further and makes us question how we treat all machines.  At what point does a doll go from toy to something which we respect?

If I told you that there are people out there who set cute fuzzy animals on fire and laughed about it, I would certainly hope it would revolt and anger you.  What if I told you that instead of animals it was an animontronic toy?

The perennial concern about the rise of robots has been how to keep them from, well, killing us. Isaac Asimov came down from the mountaintop with his Three Laws of Robotics (to summarize: Robots shouldn’t disobey or hurt humans or themselves). But what are the rules for the humans in this relationship?

Now of course this blog’s main concern is being aware that the robots can rise up and kill us at any time.  Though one of the reasons robots may do this, just like the gladiators of Rome, is due to mistreatment by human beings.

Save the Dirty Jobs for the Robots

leave a comment »

Household chores take away from the time I can spend with my family.  Every dish I have to do, every piece of clothing that needs to be laundered, every minute I spend sweeping is all time stolen from me.

There are more and more options for robots in the home.

Small Bio-Robot Slaves

“Biobots” as the researchers refer to these microscopic potential menaces could be used for the creation of nanoscale computer chips or could be used for gladiator style sports.
