Forward Thinking – Are Robots electronic persons?

One of the podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis is “Forward Thinking“, one of the productions of How Stuff Works. I wanted to bring this up not only to promote this podcast as it constantly covers areas that I find interesting, but in particular the episode “Are robots electronic persons?” brings up many relevant topics.

Issues addressed include ethics, the impact of robotics on jobs, and liability. We are on the cusp of a revolution in how we live. We need to start thinking about and discussing these issues now.
