Robot Ethics

Edited by Patrick Lin, Keith Abney and George A. Bekey

his volume contains thought provoking essays and scholarly discussion of how society and ethics may change as a result of emerging robotics technologies. Topics range from the possibility of programming ethics into robots to the ethical use of war fighting robots, and different kinds of human-robot relationships are explored. What are the ethical implications of using robots as care givers and servants, and should biological-computational hybrids ever be given rights or some level of moral standing? This authoritative work pro- vides both expert analysis and philosophic dis- cussion of what are thought to be the most criti- cally important aspects of robot ethics. Topics addressed include design and programming, military uses, privacy, the psychology of human-robot bonding, medicine and care, and the possible emergence of robot rights.
