    Robots have been a staple of science fiction stories for decades. They allow us to imagine what the future might be like, explore ethical issues, and create fantastic stories. However, most people would agree that robots lack something that is at the very core of humanity: a moral compass. Humans are held responsible for their choices because of their ability to make informed decisions based on their rationality and experience. Robots, however, do what their programs command them to do—no questions asked. This is an important part of the reason why we should be very worried about new technology that is giving us the capabilities to develop killer robots—fully autonomous weapons that can select and fire on their targets without any human intervention. Popular science fiction has once again predicted an ethical dilemma that we must now face. It should be noted that these killer robots are distinct from drones. While drones are an issue in their own right, they are different in that they require a human pilot to remotely control the machine. Killer robots take the human element entirely out of the equation. Imagine the problems that would arise from the use of these killer robots in war. Who would be blamed when one inevitably fails to distinguish between a soldier and a civilian? Would it be the programmer or the manufacturer or someone else? We must do our best to ensure accountability is possible for deeds done in battle—when lives are on the line. It seems obvious what we must do. We need to stop killer robots before it’s too late.

        Originally Published on Nov 19, 2012 Machines are starting to take the place of human soldiers on the battlefield. Some military and robotics experts predict that "killer robots" -- fully autonomous weapons that could select and engage targets --- could be developed within 20-30 years.

          Can we trust ourselves to set the right future? That is a question the UN debated in May 2014, when it convened its first ever meeting on whether to ban the use of killer robots. They are no longer the stuff of science fiction. And private firms like internet giant Google, believe that they will be able to create artificial intelligence by 2029. We wade into the issue, talking to leading minds in Japan on the future on Al Jazeera's award winning Asia news and current affairs program, 101 East.

            Ever heard of a telenoid? Hiroshi Ishiguro, one of the world's leading minds, is using these "humanoid-like" robots to learn about our future relationship with intelligent machines. He believes that someday in the near future, "humanoids" will be our friends, lovers and confidantes. Will they supersede us in intelligence. Will they like in the movies take over the earth and threaten human existence? We explore those issues on our 101 East documentary coming June 12th, 2014.

                Imagine a world where autonomous killer robots are used to wage war. It's no longer the stuff of science fiction or Hollywood movies - some say within the next decade or two, they will be deployed by various militaries. The UN, for the first time is now considering whether nations should ban their future use. We delve into the debate. Here's a little tease. "Humanoids" - coming June 12th.
