Product description


`The breadth of fascinating legal and public policy challenges posed by the advent of robots (both physical and virtual) into the commerce of daily life are well represented in this wonderful collection of essays. It is truly heartening to witness the depth of reflection offered by the contributing legal and social theorists regarding ways to navigate the countless perceivable policy challenges and uncertainties the roboticization of warfare, commerce, and social interactions affords. With this volume robot law establishes its place as a field that deserves serious attention.' -- Wendell Wallach, author, A Dangerous Master: How to keep technology from slipping beyond our control and Chair of the Technology and Ethics study group, Yale University's Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, US `The timing of Robot Law is perfect. If law is going to catch up with technology, it's going to need this book. The editors have convened an expert group of authors to guide us into the future on a wide range of issues. I'd be surprised if any legal case in robotics, in the next decade or so, does not refer to this touchstone work.' -- Patrick Lin, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis OBISPO, US `This is a really interesting law book; food for thought; and will give the reader the serious reality of need for high level talks on the subject.' -- The Criminal Lawyer
