(Before It's News)

MEPs have called for the adoption of comprehensive rules for how humans will interact with artificial intelligence and robots.

The report makes it clear that it believes the world is on the cusp of a “new industrial” robot revolution. It looks at whether to give robots legal status as “electronic persons”.

Designers should make sure any robots have a kill switch, which would allow functions to be shut down if necessary, the report recommends.

Meanwhile users should be able to use robots “without risk or fear of physical or psychological harm”, it states.
