For this quest, I am choosing to take a closer look at Rowlands’s closing statements of the chapter in which he discusses how robots would react to us if we ever succeeded in creating them. Obviously, as with all topics concerning robots, the question is whether or not these robots would eventually rise up and try to destroy the human population. My question for this consideration would be as follows: could robots ever be truly capable of advancing to such a level that is able or desires to eradicate the human population if we are the ones that are programming them to function? Obviously, the chapter makes it clear that robots are unable to think and are not conscious which means that any of the responsibility for harm on part of these robots would lie with the creator of the robots. Because robots would be unable to develop a sense of free will, the only way in which they would be able to harm us is through some type of programming errors (or by some evil scientists that desire to take over the world).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
