Robots Must Pay For Their Crimes!
FW: Thinking   Aug 16, 2016   FW:Thinking  

Traditionally when a robot injures someone or damages property we hold the robot’s creator or owner accountable. But that notion is changing. On May 31, 2016 the European Parliament received a report from the Commission on Legal Affairs saying that, depending on circumstances, the ROBOT might be held responsible for its own actions! But this raises some difficult questions. How do you make a robot pay? Do you put it in jail? Does it owe the victim monetary compensation? And most of all… does that make the robot a non-human person? On this episode of Fw:Thinking we explore all those ideas and more!
