Can we program morality into intelligent, conscious robots?

I don't trust myself, let alone a robot.

If robots are untrustworthy now, wait till they get Religion! :w00t:

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Robots will be trusted when they're reliable consumer products. They'll need to be cheaper and able to perform a variety of functions. I'll let your imagination run with what those functions might be. Cars and airplanes were once distrusted as well.

humans haven't learnt to trust each other yet, so the robots have no chance.
still, I guess it depends what colour they paint them.....

"I think the market will ultimately determine what kind of robot we're going to have."

The thing is as long as the robots have something wireless in them i.e. if they are connected to the internet in some way or bluetooth or anything there are security concerns.

I mean there are so many hackers and if we have wirelessly connected robots in every house then...
You what things could happen.

The RED EYES just means it is getting a software patch!!!

I actually prefer the WALL-E type robots, with wheels and boxy head and body. The more human looking they are the more I'm weirded out.

I think a human like robot kicks in ZOMBIE type reactions. As it does not appear to be a live, but is walking around.

Drive a car? Well, it was manufactured in part by robots. Robots are already integral to everything to our lifestyles. Regardless of the package, it's still only as good as its human programmers. And, therein lies the true dilemma, dont' you think?

Its funny: I used to eagerly adopt whatever was newest and coolest.  Now I dread having to learn new systems.  I think the first time this happened to me was after I had spent so much time learning DOS and batch files and Basic programming, and then suddenly graphical systems took over and the command line got de-emphasized.  Now of course I almost never use the command line because there are generally better ways to do things.

I think maybe we expend the energy and time to learn something only to see it go obsolete, and hence become reluctant to go through the same thing again.  Someone bring back the command line!!!
