The Legal and Ethical Principles of Robotics Law
The particularity of robots is that they interact with human beings and with the social institutions created by human beings, such as factories, hospitals, nurseries and schools. This is the first time that machines not only have autonomous decision-making abilities, but are integrated into societal life. It is therefore vital that robots obey ethical rules in relations with humans, all the more so as, at present, there is no specific rule of law that is applicable to robots, but rather fragmentary rules that apply to the various types of robots, depending on their activity.
The objective of this session will be to reflect on these ethical rules and on the rules of positive law that must be derived from them.
