And the very last bit was *quite* thought-provoking.
So--if you were In Charge, and we had developed machines that were reasonably verging on human intelligence, how would you alter the laws to accomodate this fact? What rights would robots/AI's have? What laws would apply to them? Would there be any responses to disobedience/flaws other than repair or shutdown? You can assume 3-laws robots, or not.
I guess i'm not gonna be president.
