Smart robots, driverless cars work – but they bring ethical issues too

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/oct/20/artificial-intelligence-impact-lives

We have reached a point in the creation of technological machines that the growth is beginning to come too quickly. As we try to implement robots into every activity in our lives, we are beginning to lose our humanness. The technology we create is becoming too smart for us, and soon there is going to be practically nothing that we have to do on our own. Is this a good thing though? Having a robot that can drive us around without our worrying would be great because most car crashes are due to some kind of human error, but what happens if there is a crash with a driverless car? Who is to blame? Car companies probably don’t want a total robotic car to be released. They would presumedly be the liable party in the matter, causing them to fork over millions of dollars.
