Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics supplemented for 21st century care robots

Article
Isaac Asimov famously devised three laws of robotics that underpinned a number of his science fiction books and short stories. Professor Tom Sorell of the University of Warwick has helped develop a new set of rules that they believe will be needed for 21st century care robots. In the context of the EU-funded project ACCOMPANY, Professor Sorell, in collaboration with Professor Heather Draper of the University of Birmingham, has produced six values to be used in properly-designed care-robots.
