Teaching morality to robots | Daniel Glaser | Life and style | The Guardian

theguardian.com - Daniel Glaser
As with children, ethical input with robots needs to come before, not after, developing other skills, says Daniel Glaser Every week comes a new warning that robots are taking over our jobs. People have become troubled by the question of how robots will learn ethics, if they do take over our work and our planet. As early on as the 1960s Isaac Asimov came up with the ‘Three Laws of Robotics’ outlining moral rules they should abide by. More recently there has been official guidance from the Britis.  show all text

Rutger Bregman: ‘We could cut the working week by a third’ | Books | The Guardian

theguardian.com - Andrew Anthony
Could this young Dutchman, hailed as a visionary, galvanise the left with his radical plan for a borderless future in which we are all paid for working less? As liberal democracy seems to be crumbling under the weight of widespread despondency, some hardline opinions are in danger of becoming received wisdoms. In the global market, we are told, we must work harder and improve productivity. The welfare state has become too large and we need to cut back on benefits. Immigration is out of control .  show all text

theguardian.com - Guardian Staff
Complaints about ‘green crap’ have been a convenient excuse for governments unable or unwilling to intervene and cap suppliers’ prices Last week, photographs of wind turbines were once again juxtaposed with headlines about rising energy prices.
