Interesting read. I'm always enthusiastic about new discoveries, but morality and ethics are often built around subjective ''truths.'' That said, these robots are going to be used in confined spaces for specific tasks...but still. Do you think that this is a good idea? https://www.newscientist.com/articl...rap-robot-paralysed-by-choice-of-who-to-save/ When we’re talking about ethics, all of this is largely about robots that are developed to function in pretty prescribed spaces,” says Wendell Wallach, author of Moral Machines: Teaching robots right from wrong. Still, he says, experiments like Winfield’s hold promise in laying the foundations on which more complex ethical behaviour can be built. “If we can get them to function well in environments when we don’t know exactly all the circumstances they’ll encounter, that’s going to open up vast new applications for their use.
