Submission + - Is it immoral to build robot soldiers? How Asimov's three laws ran out of steam. (techrepublic.com)

An anonymous reader writes: It looks like AI-powered weapons systems could soon be outlawed before they're even built. While discussing whether robots should be allowed to kill might like an obscure debate robots (and artificial intelligence) are playing ever-larger roles in society and we are figuring out piecemeal what is acceptable and what isn't. If killer robots are immoral, then what about the other uses we've got planned for androids? Asimov's three laws don't seem to cut it as this story explains: "As we consider the ethical implications of having robots in our society, it becomes obvious that robots themselves are not where responsibility lies."
