Robot ethics! Oh, mother, I really have lived into the twenty-first century!

Indeed we have more robots among us already than we tend to realize, and more are to come. We also have a great many lawyers in our midst. And the two groups are shortly going to be on a collision course. A warning about the legal problems that widespread use of robots will pose has come from M. Ryan Calo, a residential fellow at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society:
“These are devices that don’t have a predetermined usage; they’re not toasters. There’s a growing concern now about robot ethics.”
