I am so torn on this, sure I want a robot toy, but when does it cease to be a toy? I can see it now, I come home to a general purpose robot that has done all the cleaning and possibly the cooking, but it will not stop there. With every new model comes new features and abilities until one day at my doorstep arrives (enter clever robot name) 5000. The first commercial robot with an adaptable Ai system.
This is where it gets tricky, ethically speaking. Should we create robot rights just like animal rights? Don't get me wrong you don't want to treat your robot soo bad that it walks on you. Yet do i seriously have to apologize to it if I were to do something that affected it in a negative way?
This is just the tip of the iceberg when dealing with social and ethical issues involving Ai controlled robots.
The future is not human folks..
