Should we put robots on trial?

Should we put robots on trial? | new tech Callum Cole | Scoop.it

With most robot-like machines that exist today, any serious problems can be easily traced back to a human somewhere, whether because the machine was used carelessly or because it was intentionally programmed to do harm. But experts in artificial intelligence and the emerging field of robot ethics say that is likely to change. With the advent of technological marvels like the self-driving car and increasingly sophisticated drones, they say we’ll soon be seeing the emergence of machines that are essentially autonomous. And when these machines behave in ways unpredictable to their makers, it will be unclear who should be held legally responsible for their actions.
With their eyes on this apparently inevitable future, some specialists have started to argue that our legal system is woefully unprepared—that in a world in which more and more decisions are made by entities with no moral compass, the laws we have are not enough. In fact, some are arguing that it’s time to do something surprising: to extend our idea of what it means to be an “independent actor,” and perhaps even hold the robots themselves legally culpable.

Samsung topped Apple, Lenovo in China's smartphone market for 2012 | new tech Callum Cole | Scoop.it

Chief Apple rival Samsung tripled its Chinese smartphone sales in 2012, taking the top spot ahead of Lenovo and Apple in the increasingly important Chinese market.

Samsung sold 30.06 million smartphones in China, nearly three times the 10.90 million units it sold in 2011. That total gave Samsung control of 17.7 percent of the Chinese market, solidly ahead of its competitors. Chinese tech firm Lenovo took second place, with 13.2 percent of the market, while Apple came in third place with 11 percent.

EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hayden Theuerkauf's curator insight, March 21, 2013 10:34 PM

This article/website gives information on how a scientists have built an internet for robots, so that robots can exchange informations with eachother. This will become bigger and better in the future and allow vital information to be shared through each robot, and would essentially make it easier to maintain robots and the software.

Braden Costin's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:14 AM

This article focuses on a World Wide Web for Robots. This Internet collects and stores all data that a robot has collectyed throughout it's day. Other Robots would be able to access this internet in the form of a query to an unknown problem. Essentially if one Robot takes a step forward so does every other. This would allow for lighter and smaller robots as they would only have to query the internet for any problems rather than going through memory for the solution.

It’s time for a real policy on asteroids | The Space Review

It’s time for a real policy on asteroids | The Space Review | new tech Callum Cole | Scoop.it

If you think the events of the post-Valentine surprise of the Russian meteor and the 2012 DA14 near-miss are one of a kind, think again. “We know there are 500,000 to one million asteroids the size of DA14 or larger. So far we have found fewer than 1% of that ‘cosmic hailstorm’ through which we sail in our yearly orbit around the Sun,” said the Association of Space Explorers in their recent statement. We are tracking fewer than 10,000 of them. Even our pathetically limited Space Situational Awareness of the threat shows that there were a total of 10 close approaches just this month and there are many more near approaches on the way, and currently 1,381 already identified potentially hazardous objects.

 

In 2008, some prescient members of Congress wrote HR 6063, which tasked the Director of the President’s Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a policy for notifying federal agencies and relevant emergency response institutions of an impending near Earth object threat, if near-term public safety is at stake; and recommend a federal agency or agencies to be responsible for protecting the nation from a near Earth object that is anticipated to collide with Earth and implementing a deflection campaign, in consultation with international bodies, should one be required.
