Robot 'Code Of Ethics' Could Move From Sci-Fi To Real Life

Today, as soldiers are naming their robots, the elderly are befriending mechanized assistants, and domestic drones are preparing for liftoff, experts say it’s time for a robot "Code of Ethics" that can protect the complex relationships people are developing with the machines. Roboticist Laurel Riek and her colleague at the University of Notre Dame, ethicist Don Howard, proposed establishing a designer’s code of ethics at the We Robot conference for robotics and law this month. People who use robots for physical assistance should be able to shut off any video surveillance when they bathe and when it comes to self-driving cars and flying drones, laws should clearly state who is at fault when those autonomous machines do damage.
