Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Will Social robots affect our privacy?

rtoz writes: The social robots like this one "JIBO" are getting ready to be part of our family within few years. It seems lot of people are showing interest for buying this kind of family robots. The official video about JIBO got more than 2 million views within few days. And, it collected more than 900% the goal from crowd-funding. And, most of the News websites published articles about this this new robot.

All these things clearly indicate that the Social Robots will be part of our family within few years.

  Whether our privacy will be getting affected in anyway if we allow these social robots in our family?

And, whether Governments can use these robots for spying purpose? Or, whether these robots itself can do any harm to human?
