What type of robot you think we should allow or ban from society?

Self-aware robots: Robot that can talk and think like Bender from Futurama. Then again, they can be very innovative or simply take all our jobs away. These are all metal robot(not like the one below) with possible fake skin that looks like human.

Remote robots: Robots controlled by people behind the desk only. Will not activate unless someone activates them. Some what like today's drones.

Drone robots: Robots not remotely controlled, but program under a hive computer system in our society(like Terminators). Unlike Remote the person is not allow to control them remotely. All robots are under the same computer system can be all turned off at the same time on one computer system.

Mech robots: We ride them like Gundams(person inside), but then again it can be turned into riot control machine or military machine for war. The good use for it is mining(safer for miners), saving people on overturned vehicles while lifting heavy things, or simply give us the ability to travel far and fast without driving cars. This prevent outside influence of taking over the mech you are riding.

Individual programmable robots: Not much to say, they don't do anything other than being programmed by its own owner. Not under a hive computer system. Each robot can be program by its own owner as they are not connect to others in the same system. This prevent Terminator like scenario where all robots is under one computer command. Then again they can be Assassin droids if programmed to do so.

Cyborgs: Bring the dead back to life by implants or simply the living replacing body parts for machine parts for physical advantages. Obviously this one would be banned unless of course Gov force this on us.

Synthetic Robot: A mix between biological and machine(metal if you think about it). Unlike cyborgs, it is not implants. There can be some drawbacks to this, like it can start mixing in with other living organisms like "The Thing"(that is some serious mad science) or something like "Blade Runner". They are self-aware, but unlike self-aware robot they are not all metal inside.

Good thread, I'll bump and bite. Stepfords... only I'm not
talking about just Paula Prentice (altogether 3 1/2+ stars
though)-- I mean a super-textured, eye-poppin' other-
worldly completely hyphenated to the max reptilian
hybrid hottie that can vacuum the GelCoat off an un-
restored '66 Sting Ray and leave the paint untouched.

And my living room carpet needs it, son. I'd throw off
the lease on the Acura and sign up for that. YESterday.
Flame away, but if there's an interlock with a Prime
Directive that nobody gets hurt... no more $300 dates
ending with a hug. And no, I'm not a misogynist, just
ugly, 65 this fall and pragmatic.

Robots we don't need any more of at all, whether animal,
vegetable or mineral in any percentage: bureaucrats.
Most of 'em haven't sufficient CPU to blow a quarter-
amp fuse-- much less perform anything else of use.

Sad to say, my answer is probably against T&C's...

Having said that--you can fill in the blanks from there.

Anyway I'd rather have holodeck instead of service robots.

I'm going to be one of those old, salty men talking about how 'in my day we didn't need those high-falutin' robots to work and think for us, we only needed our smart phones!"

Yeah, I was gonna say I didn't see sex-bots. I mean seriously, if it wasn't for porn and pirates, the internet, which is just technology, wouldn't be anywhere near as advanced as it is today. If we can get some good sex-bots, then we can ask the zip app if deriving pleasure from a glorified toaster is cheating? Lol.

I was going to list sex bots, Sex bots can be any of the type of robots on the list depending on persons taste. Other than the Mech or Cyborg of course. It would most likely be as an individual programmable robot, if not the Drone robot with mass production. All robots other than cyborg, synthetic and mech can have fake human skin.

Well in that case, I'm for anything except mixing biological with technological. Using tech as tools or entertainment, fine.

Using tech to significantly alter an organism is something I don't want to be around for.

All the people who are into transhumanism can carry on without me.

I say unleash them all, but we'll need to pull off a Socialist (not communist) Utopia in order to do so successfully. Also, firm dedication to interstellar space travel, since Earth would get boring.

What I'm most looking forward to is nanobots and quantumbots, used for construction, for pulling apart unwanted molecules and re-assembling them (such as in environmental cleanup.) They could also be injected into my back to fix up the ol' baseball injury, and even nestled in the crevice by my big toenails, constantly eliminating sock lint.

If you have self-aware robots,wouldn't they be considered sentient beings and have all rights conveyed to them under the Constitution?

If you've never seen the Star Trek Next Gen episode "The Measure of a Man"

Watch it.

I vaguely remember that episode.I will have to watch it again.I was thinking more along the lines of Isaac Asimovs robots.

Self-aware robots: Depends on what kind of self defense weaponry is available. If they're anything like humans, wouldn't it be safe to assume they may commit human crimes too?

Remote robots: Sure. Screw the warlike & criminal uses, though. They could serve as avatars for people in specific fields and for personal tasks like "babysitting" or teaching, going shopping, etc. The first thing that came to mind was remote controlled cars, caretakers, or shoppers for severely handicapped people. The person who's unable to be in a specific place could be controlling the robot and send it out to do their needed tasks. (It could also have entertainment uses and many other uses where a person can't physically be in a specific location).

Drone robots: We already have lesser versions of this, with ATMs, automatic checkouts, automated traffic systems, etc. I can definitely agree with their presence, depending on the role.

Mech robots: O.O No way! It's basically trusting civilians with humanoid tanks. I can accept them being in specific fields like you mentioned. But there's no way I think random people should be able to have them. Then again, a lot of industrial farming equipment and construction equipment can fit this description right now. So fine, but only with special licenses and training.

Individual programmable robots: I don't have a problem with this, mainly because you're just talking about hybrids between computers & remote controlled vehicle machines. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an iPhone in the next 15 years that was a robot dog, and you could use voice commands to make calls, control it, and use its apps. Its eyes could be projectors for your apps & media, and you use some kind of hand gestures to navigate the app. Maybe it would be the iCompanion?

Cyborgs: I'm against attempting to raise the dead. But I wouldn't have a problem with augmenting our bodies. I probably wouldn't volunteer for it, but I see it mostly as enhanced prosthetic limbs, enhanced permanent contact lenses, etc. I actually think it would be cool... as long as all citizens have access to the technology. Just imagine the corruption if only the rich could afford to give themselves superhuman bodies. It would be an absolute nightmare scenario.

Synthetic Robot: Without more info, I'm saying a definite NO. Mostly metal creatures with some human parts? Where would the human parts come from? I could see human trafficking rings, organ trafficking rings, prostitution rings, paramilitary groups, grace robbers, and virtually every other nefarious type of group benefiting from this.

What happens if the parts of one of your loved ones is used without your consent? Or would they be using aborted fetuses for this purpose? Or even worse, what happens if corrupt doctors "abort" a pregnancy, then sell the child's body for one of these robots?

It may sound far fetched, but there was a good documentary about the Catholic Church in Spain doing something similar with "unfit" mothers. They'd claim the child's birth was a miscarriage or died right after birth and then show the mother a dead body. But the bodies were bodies they had on file and they'd sell the actual child through adoption. (google "Spain's Stolen Babies" to see a lot more on the subject.)

The kind that cleans floors, dusts the house, washes dishes, folds the laundry, and makes me a Crown Royal and gingerale... whilst I sit back and supervise.

Was going to say that as long as people can have sex with them...

Someone beat me to it though.

Fold laundry? Extreme laziness. Want some Wall E society? How hard is it to fold your own clothes. We have dishwashers already, so that is fine.

Your list is still very rudimentary and adhere's to the current tech available.
Don't think so small, in 30 years we'll have all those categories smashed into one machine.
We haven't even really scratched the surface with this, also - robots are computers, don't stress, all will be well


This isn't Terminator.

Um, no. You cannot have a mech + synthetic at the same time. Nor Cyborg being a mech. That is wack. Those three cannot be together at all. It is going to be one or the other. Also, drone robots are not considers as self programmable robots. They are link into the system and stuck. It has to be either one. Kind of like Zombie or Human.
