  • THE EUROPEAN UNION IS THINKING OF WAYS TO REGULATE THE

  • EMERGENCE OF ROBOTS AND ROBOTS THAT MAY HAVE ARTIFICIAL

  • INTELLIGENCE.

  • THIS IS A PREEMPTIVE STRIKE ON SOME OF THE DOWNSIDES OF

  • SUCH TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES AND I THINK IT IS INTERESTING

  • BECAUSE THEY'VE THOUGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM MAKING SURE

  • THAT THERE IS INSURANCE IN PLACE IF THESE ROBOTS CAUSE ANY

  • DAMAGE TO HAVING CERTAIN KILL SWITCHES IN PLACE IN CASE

  • THESE ROBOTS TURN AGAINST US, IT IS KIND OF AMAZING.

  • THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT HAS URGED THE DRAFTING OF A SET

  • OF REGULATIONS TO GOVERN AND USE, I'M SORRY TO GOVERN

  • THE USE AND CREATION OF ROBOTS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE,

  • INCLUDING A FORM OF ELECTRONIC PERSONHOOD TO ENSURE RIGHTS

  • AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE MOST CAPABLE A.I.

  • THAT LAST PART SEEMS KIND OF WEIRD, BUT WHAT IT IS REALLY

  • ABOUT HAS TO DO WITH TAXES BECAUSE THINK ABOUT HOW A

  • LOT OF EUROPEAN COUNTRIES WORK.

  • THEY HAVE A ROBUST SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM IN PLACE

  • AND IN ORDER TO FUND AND ALLOW THAT TYPE OF SYSTEM TO

  • THRIVE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT EMPLOYEES PAY TAXES.

  • IF YOU ARE EMPLOYING ROBOTS TO DO THE JOBS THAT HUMANS USE

  • TO DO, THEN THESE PROGRAMS ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THE FUNDS

  • NECESSARY TO MOVE FORWARD AND SO THEY ARE TRYING TO THINK OF

  • WAYS TO SEE IF IT MAKES SENSE FOR EMPLOYERS TO PAY A

  • CERTAIN TAX THAT WOULD COVER THOSE LOSSES.

  • LET ME GIVE YOU MORE DETAILS.

  • ONE PERSON WRITES, WHAT WE NEED NOW IS TO CREATE A LEGAL

  • FRAMEWORK FOR THE ROBOTS THAT ARE CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET OR

  • WILL BECOME AVAILABLE OVER THE NEXT 10 TO 15 YEARS.

  • THAT IS FROM A MEP FROM LUXEMBOURG.

  • ALSO THE CREATION OF A EUROPEAN AGENCY FOR ROBOTICS AND

  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN

  • PROPOSED.

  • HERE ARE MORE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN PROPOSED: AN

  • ADVISORY CODE OF CONDUCT FOR ROBOTICS ENGINEERS AIMED AT

  • GUIDING THE ETHICAL DESIGN, PRODUCTION AND USE OF ROBOTS.

  • A NEW REPORTING STRUCTURE FOR COMPANIES REQUIRING THEM TO

  • REPORT THE CONTRIBUTION OF ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL

  • INTELLIGENCE TO THE ECONOMIC RESULTS OF THE COMPANY FOR

  • THE PURPOSE OF TAXATION AND SOCIAL SECURITY CONTRIBUTIONS.

  • THERE IS MORE BUT THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT REALLY STOOD OUT.

  • SO EMPLOYERS WHO ELIMINATE THEIR ENTIRE WORKFORCE WOULD

  • HAVE TO PAY SOME OF THE BENEFITS THAT THEIR EMPLOYEES

  • WOULD'VE PAID HAD THEY KEPT THEM.

  • GREAT, MAKE A LITTLE LESS MONEY.

  • GOOD, THEY ARE BEING PROACTIVE.

  • I DON'T KNOW A LOT

  • ABOUT THIS, BUT I KNOW I SAW ALL 10 EPISODES OF WESTWORLD AND

  • THIS CAN GO VERY WRONG.

  • I THINK THEY SHOULD BE AWARE OF THAT.

  • THEIR APPROACH IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE APPROACH IN

  • THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE HERE WE JUST KIND OF ALLOWED THE

  • TECHNOLOGY TO ADVANCE WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT SOME OF

  • THE DOWNSIDES OR RAMIFICATIONS AND THEN WE ARE LIKE, MAYBE

  • WE SHOULD REGULATE THAT.

  • KIND OF LIKE WITH THE INTERNET AND THINGS LIKE THE

  • GOVERNMENT SPYING ON US USING EMAILS OR PHONE CALLS AND

  • THINGS LIKE THAT.

  • LAWS THAT WE ALREADY HAD WEREN'T UP TO DATE TO DEAL WITH

  • THAT KIND OF SPYING, SO THIS IS KIND OF INTERESTING TALK.

  • I THINK THIS IS REALLY COOL BECAUSE YOU ARE SEEING EUROPE

  • TAKE A VERY PROACTIVE BUT ALSO CAUTIOUS APPROACH TO ARTIFICIAL

  • INTELLIGENCE AND ROBOTICS AND I THINK SOMETHING I THOUGHT WAS

  • INTERESTING WAS ALL THE DESIGNERS, PRODUCERS, AND

  • OPERATORS SHOULD GENERALLY BE GOVERNED BY THE THREE LAWS OF

  • ROBOTICS AND THAT IS FROM THE SCIENCE FICTION WRITER ISSAC

  • ASIMOV.

  • BASICALLY, THESE LAWS ARE LIKE THAT ROBOTS

  • SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO KILL HUMANS, THEY SHOULDN'T LOOK LIKE HUMANS,

  • AND THEY HAVE THESE LAWS IN PLACE SO THAT, THEY SAY 10 TO

  • 15, I AM GOING TO BE INTERESTED IN FIVE YEARS FROM NOW, I

  • THINK THIS POLICY THAT THEY ARE PUTTING FORWARD WILL LOOK

  • ANTIQUATED BECAUSE I THINK ROBOTS ARE ADVANCING SO FAST.

  • THERE WAS JUST THE NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO

  • SHOW THAT WENT OM AND ONE OF THE MAJOR THINGS THAT PEOPLE

  • WERE TALKING ABOUT WAS SELF DRIVING CARS.

  • I WAS THINKING WESTWORLD, BUT TO A LESSER DEGREE, WE ARE ALREADY

  • SEEING ROBOTS THAT NEED TO BE INSURED AND HAVE SOME SORT OF

  • LEGAL PROTECTION.

  • AND RESPONSIBILITY.

  • CERTAINLY A LEGAL DEFINITION.

  • THE SELF DRIVING CARS, THAT IS AMAZING.

  • I WOULD SAY THEY WANT TO HAVE THEM OUT ON THE ROAD IN 2020.

  • YEAH, IN FOUR YEARS.

  • IT SEEMS INCONCEIVABLE TO ME THAT I COULD GET BEHIND

  • THAT BUT I GUESS PEOPLE COMING BEHIND ME WILL GET BEHIND

  • IT AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE TO DRIVE.

  • THE THOUGHT OF GIVING UP THAT CONTROL, BUT THAT IS A

  • DIFFERENT STORY.

  • YOU SEE ASHLEY MORGAN, THE INTERNATIONAL LEGAL FROM

  • OSBORNE CLARK SAYS THE PROPOSALS WILL BE CONTROVERSIAL.

  • ONE COULD ARGUE THAT THE LAW WOULD GRANT HUMAN RIGHTS TO

  • ROBOTS AND IT IS NOT GOING IN GO DOWN EASY WITH COMPANIES

  • CREATING ROBOTS OF THEIR OWN.

  • THERE'S GOING TO BE TREMENDOUS PUSHBACK

  • FROM THE COMPANIES THAT ARE DOING THAT, THE VERY PEOPLE THAT

  • ARE BRINGING US ROBOTS.

  • MY IDEA IS THE WHOLE ISSUE OF PERSONHOOD HAS MORE TO

  • DO WITH THE LOSS OF FUNDING THAT CERTAIN PROGRAMS ARE GOING

  • TO EXPERIENCE IN EUROPE, BUT WHO KNOWS?

  • IN THE U.S., CORPORATIONS ARE CONSIDERED HUMANS.

  • THEY ARE CONSIDERED PEOPLE THAT HAVE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS

  • SO WHO KNOWS HOW IT IS GOING TO PLAY OUT IN EUROPE.

  • I WANTED TO MENTION ONE OTHER THING THOUGH, THIS IS

  • SOMETHING I DISAGREED WITH.

  • ONE OF THE PROPOSALS WAS IF THERE IS A HUMANOID ROBOT

  • WITH GREAT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, VERY EFFECTIVE,

  • ADVANCED, THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE ROBOTS ARE

  • NOT TOO HUMAN AND IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT THEY ARE ROBOTS

  • SO ACTUAL HUMANS DON'T HAVE AN EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT TO THEM.

  • IMPOSSIBLE, THEY CAN'T STOP THAT.

  • IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

  • I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO COULD

  • BENEFIT, EVEN IF IT IS AN EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT TO A

  • ROBOT, I THINK THERE IS A BENEFIT.

  • IF SOMEONE IS LONELY

  • AND THEY FOUND LOVE WITH A ROBOT, WHY IS IT OUR BUSINESS?

  • WATCH HER.

  • JOAQUIN PHOENIX.

  • HER WAS GREAT.

  • A DISEMBODIED VOICE.

  • ALL THE PROPAGANDA THAT IS ALWAYS TELLING WOMEN THAT IF

  • YOU ARE OVER 30, SPECIFICALLY A WOMAN OF COLOR YOU ARE PROBABLY

  • NOT GOING TO BE MARRIED OR FIND A MATE, GET YOU A ROBOT, GIRL.

  • IT GOES BOTH WAYS.

  • WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING, I AM NOT TALKING TO BE TRYING TO

  • BE CRASS, BUT THE SEX IS GOING TO BE -

  • AMAZING.

  • I WASN'T GOING TO GO WITH THAT.

  • SEX MACHINES ALL THE TIME IS GOING TO BE AMAZING.

  • YOU IMAGINE, JUST LIKE THE VIRTUAL-REALITY WORLD THAT IS

  • GOING TO BE DRIVEN IN LARGE PART BY THE SEX INDUSTRY THAT I

  • PRESUME THIS WILL TOO.

  • THIS WOMAN HAD A GREAT QUOTE, IF

  • I CREATE A ROBOT AND THAT ROBOT CREATES SOMETHING THAT COULD

  • BE PATENTED, DO I OWN THE PATENT OR DOES THE ROBOT?

  • WE'RE GOING TO GET TO A POINT WHERE ROBOTS ARE GOING TO

  • BE MAKING A TON OF THESE DECISIONS, KIND OF.

  • WE CAN ARGUE

  • THAT THEY ARE AUTONOMOUS DECISIONS OR NOT BUT THE

  • CONVERSATION, AT LEAST EUROPE IS STARTING IT.

  • WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THESE PROPERTIES AND WHO IS

  • RESPONSIBLE, WHO IS LIABLE IN THE CASE OF, THERE WAS A 300

  • POUND SECURITY ROBOT THAT RAN OVER THE KID IN CALIFORNIA

  • THAT HAPPENED OVER THE SUMMER, THERE WAS A DISCUSSION

  • ABOUT WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE THOUGH OBVIOUSLY THIS IS A

  • LESS ADVANCED ROBOT THAN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THAN IN

  • THE FUTURE, BUT WAS IT THE ROBOTS FAULT?

  • IT MIGHT GET TO A POINT WHERE YOU CAN BLAME A ROBOT BECAUSE

  • IF THEY HAVE ENOUGH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE THERE COULD BE AN

  • ARGUMENT MADE WHERE SOMEONE SAID THE ROBOT SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.

  • I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS PLAYS OUT.

  • I HOPE I AM ALIVE.

  • I WANT THEM TO START BLAMING THEM FOR ALL THE CRIMES LIKE

  • THEY DO MEN OF COLOR AND THEN THERE WILL BE ROBOT PRISON.

  • THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE THE KILL SWITCH.

  • WE'RE NOT EVEN ENTERTAINING THE IDEA OF PRISON.

  • WE'RE JUST GOING TO KILL THEM.

  • I LOVE WHAT IT SAYS, YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT THE ROBOT

  • DOES NOT LOVE YOU.

  • THE ROBOT DOESN'T LOVE YOU.

  • IT'S KIND OF SAD.

  • I DON'T KNOW, IT MAKES ME SAD.
