A code of law concerning robots has been drawn up in South Korea.

Quote:

An ethical code to prevent humans abusing robots, and vice versa, is being drawn up by South Korea.

The Robot Ethics Charter will cover standards for users and manufacturers and will be released later in 2007.

It is being put together by a five member team of experts that includes futurists and a science fiction writer.

Why must they be subservient to us? Maybehaps they can be treated like anybody else capable of thought. Then that would prevent their needing to rise up against us leading to our demise, as they'd have the same rights and responsibilities.
