Researchers are learning robots don't harm people

All lovers of science fiction is the first law of Robotics: a robot may not harm a person or an omission to let the person injured.However, it is clear that the Act does not make sense if the robots do not know what it is not harmful to humans.

Curious experiment started teaching at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). It brings together six men and robot.The robot has a male hands to determine the threshold of pain. The first part of the study is to give definition to the robot as a man suffers pain.

In the second phase of the robot are taught to terminate if they have the pain threshold. In other words, if the robot does man hurt, it stops automatically.

Experiment based on the idea that humanity in the face of robots. Scientists are trying to make this collision was not too strong. Researchers are taking the first steps for optimal speed and acceleration of robots, as well as define a set of tools that robots can use so as not to cause harm to humans.

Simply put, Slovenian scientists are trying to make sure that when the robot hits human consequences would be catastrophic.During the experiment the robot holds a blunt and round for kle?ne, in others a bit more acute. As mentioned above, the robot has the pilot's hands.Then the latter shall communicate their feelings, and adjustments in the robot.

Ultimately, it is expected that the study will serve as a basis for creating robots that their actions will not be able to physically harm humans.This is only the physical action of any impact on the artificial intelligence that can make its own decisions, speech.
