246293 submission Submission + - South Korea Drafts Robot Ethics Laws (physorg.com) Submitted by eldavojohn on Tuesday August 07, 2007 @09:15AM eldavojohn writes: "The nation that aims to have a robot in every home by 2013 has started a project aimed at a law for the ethics of robots. Robots are becoming more mainstream and something must be done to prevent hideous attacks like this video where an observers finger is nearly bitten clean off by a robot run amok. But all joking aside, there is call for this. A robot has already been deployed as a robotic guard at a school in South Korea & they see more applications for mechanized drones such as border patrol, assisting the elderly or even babysitting. We may not be too far from our first Robbie the Killer Robot Court Case."
