Roboethics

Noel Sharkey (The ethical frontiers of robotics, in Science) comments on the use of robots designed to entertain children and assist with care-giving via video cameras and similar devices.
There is a vital need for public discussion to decide the limits of robot use before the industry and busy parents make the decision themselves.
Industry and parents... those bastards!
