Social Challenges in a Human-robot Relationship
Keywords:Artificial Intelligence, AI, robotics, Human-robot Relationship
Recent developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics have further improved the ability of humanoid robots to engage with humans. The increase in their ability and value has led to several initiatives to proffer special rights to such intelligent robots as a means of protection. These efforts have, at the same time, raised questions about the possibility of robots being a part of human society, if not our equals. Confusion primarily revolves around the status of intelligent robots, whether they are property or have other special statuses that may resemble human rights.
