When A Robot Comes Knocking On The Door

Adafruit 672

When A Robot Comes Knocking On The Door @ NPR. Thanks Jason!

Peter Remine says he will know it’s time to get serious about rights for robots “when a robot knocks on my door asking for some help.”

Remine, founder of the Seattle-based American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Robots, says the moment will come when a robot in an automobile factory “will become sentient, realize that it doesn’t want to do that unfulfilling and dangerous job anymore, and ask for protection under state workers’ rights.”

Bit by bit, we are growing more comfortable with digital devices in our daily lives. There are robots with human arms and humans with robotic arms. There are robots that provide health care. Robots that clean houses. Service robots take care of us; rescue robots save us; industrial robots build things for us; education robots teach us; phone bots assist us; and military robots wage warson our behalf.
