Scientists are thinking to write an ethical code for robots due to development in robotics
Scientists are seriously thinking to write a code for robots due to problem posed by development of robotics.
Some experts in South Korea said they were drawing up an ethical code for human to abuse robots and vice versa.
“Safety” is on their priority lists of concern. Previously robots were used only in industry and military but now-a-days
it is used in day to day life.
Robot vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers are already in many homes, and robotic toys are increasingly popular with children.
If these robots become more intelligent then who will be held responsible if they injure some one ,user, the designer or the robot itself.
Isaac Asimov was already thinking about these problems back in the 1940s, when he developed his famous "three laws of robotics".
1-A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm
2-A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law
3-A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second law.
But it was difficult to programme a robot basing on these three laws
To formulate the code lawyers, engineers, scientists should work together and should see that no harm to humanity should be done by development of robotics
