Title: Robotic Ethics

Robotic Ethics
  • Shahid Iqbal Tarar

Robotics and Ethics
  • Is new science or branch or a field of
    application of Engineering?
  • Actually Discipline born from Computer Science,
    AI, Mechanics, Physics/Maths, Electronics,
    Automation and control and cybernetics
  • Specificity of Robotics
  • Humanity at threshold of replicating an
    intellegent and autonomous entity
  • Complex concepts like (learning, conciousness,
    decision making , freedom, emtions etc. ) may not
    have same semantic meaning in humans, animals and

Robotics and Ethics
  • It draws on many other disciplnes like logic,
    neuroscience, biology, philosophy, natural
    history and arts.
  • Robotics defecto unifies two cultures, science
    and humanities
  • The primary assumption for Robotic ethics is the
    unity of these cultures

  • Introduction
  • Three Laws of Robotics introduced by Isaac Asimov
    in 1942
  • A robot may not injure a human being or, through
    inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  • A robot must obey orders given to it by human
    beings except where such orders would conflict
    with the First Law.
  • A robot must protect its own existence as long as
    such protection does not conflict with the First
    or Second Law.
  • Later, Asimov added the Zeroth Law
  • "A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction,
    allow humanity to come to harm" the rest of the
    laws are modified sequentially to acknowledge

Robotics (layman opinion)
  • Robots are just machines
  • Robots have ethical dimensions
  • Robots as moral agents
  • Robots, evolution of a new specie

  • Military Robotics
  • Intellegent weapons
  • Robot Soldiers
  • Superhumans
  • Edutainment
  • Educational Robot Kits
  • Robot Toys
  • Entertainment

Ethics in Robotics
  • Atleast three things we might mean
  • The ethical systems built into robots,
  • The ethics of people who design and use robots
  • The ethics of how people treat robots
