The fear that mankind will become victim of its own success in developing science and technology has always been with us. All new technologies from fire to fusion carry the potential of immense danger as well as immense benefit. So far, we have managed to avoid the worst nightmares of annihilation but there is no shortage of great minds, from Isaac Asimov to Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, warning of the dangers of AI and robotics. Nick Bostrom’s Future of Humanity Institute regards AI as human-kinds greatest existential threat.
Robotethics.co.uk pulls together a wide variety of publicly available material and make it more easily available to researchers, designers and builders of robotic and AI systems. This aims to facilitate the consideration of ethical issues at all stages of development.
At present the site is structured mainly by media type as follows:
