As technology speeds forward, humans are beginning to imagine a day when robots will fill roles in our society, like those explored in science fiction.
But what should we be thinking about today, as robots like military and delivery drones become a part of our society?
How should robots be programmed to interact with us?
How should we treat robots?
And who is responsible for a robot’s actions?
As we look at the unexpected impact of new technologies, we are obligated to consider the moral and ethical implications of robotics.
