The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just seen on BBC news that the idiots in the play pen are considering a bill of rights for robots. Yes, I thought it was a wind up, but found this link. I wonder if they have been watching Millenium Man?

    So what next paid leave computers?

    Semper Strenuissima.

    I think that is just the BBC's spin on the subject fed by a few media seeking philosophers. The issue is more to do with protecting society from autonomous machines and that old chestnut liability! The reality is we are a long way from defending/ protecting the rights of a conscious machine, judging what a consciousness is would be a good start as I don't think the Turing Test is accepted as a measure of the ability to think anymore, more the ability to fool. "Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum."
  3. Isaac Asimov's rules for robots should cover most eventualities ( .

    Anybody who builds a "killer" machine with the means of independent thought or, worse still, one with emotions, needs some serious wall to wall counselling. We have enough bloody problems just having women!
