What happens when robots become family friends? Dave:
We may feel tinges of sentiment when getting rid of an old car, replaced by a newer model, or feel great that a problematic dishwasher was taken away by the refuse hauler and replaced by one that just works.
Can such emotions be taken a few steps down the road to a time where we consider robots and their ilk to somewhat alive?
And when we discard such a much-beloved device is it murder?
