Will the three laws of robotics save us?
« on: November 26, 2012, 11:11:38 PM »
The Three laws:
    A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Will the three laws of robotics save us?

Robot uprising risk to be studied........

Cambridge researchers are to assess whether technology could end up destroying human civilization. The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) will study dangers posed by biotechnology, artificial life, nanotechnology and climate change.

By the time we get Asimov style robots, how will we be able to define a human? Come to that,how will we be able to define a robot? After all,Lije Bailey wouldn't have known R Daneel Oliver was a robot without the prefix.(Caves Of Steel) Work is progressing on creating body parts in the lab.How long before a whole body? Brain computer interface already exists so why not computer body interface? A quantum computer would surely be a positronic brain.If you have an artificial brain that can learn and develop reason then would it be possible to 'hardwire' behaviour? Would it be ethical to terminate 'faulty' models?  Andrew Martin and Data are but two examples of the conundrums the future will present.
If you believe you can tell me what to think.
I believe I can tell you where to go.

I always feel a bit strange with this as it creates a division. There are those superior organic beings and something made of steel to obey. Smells like a slavery. I would rather abandon androids and create some highly specialized machines without human features. Otherwise we are asking for trouble.
