  • Household Robots

    As assistants,caretakers, nannies, and playmates, robots will have be involved with most every aspect of domestic life. Establishing general principles, lines they should and should not cross, in influencing the development of a childhood or in the decision-making processes of adults, need to be made explicit. It seems likely that robots will be looked to in many homes, if not as arbitrators, then at least as members of the family that can cast "votes" to settle disputes. Impartial viewpoints may assist in conflict resolution, actions that overstep the boundaries (e.g disrespecting parental wishes regarding, say, how to discipline a child) will not be appreciated.
