Two weeks back I kicked off what has become a small series of posts on robots. The first post was about if robots will take your job, a study from Oxford University last year found that 47% of U.S. jobs are potentially at risk. The second post kicked of with the following line: “Hey, it’s friday, so why not think about a future in which I for one will obey my robotic overlords”. In this post I shared a small experiment that was aimed to find out how far people would go in obeying the commands of a robot.
Today I want to close the series with a video produced by one of my favorite YouTube Channels called PBSoffbook. They produce awesome video’s on a whole range of topics. This video deals with a society in which robots and humans live side by side. 3 interesting questions: How should robots be programmed to interact with us? How should we treat robots? And who is responsible for a robot’s actions?
