Robots could demand legal rights

 


Robots could one day demand the same citizen’s rights as humans, according to a study by the British government.

If granted, countries would be obliged to provide social benefits including housing and even “robo-healthcare”, the report says.

The predictions are contained in nearly 250 papers that look ahead at developments over the next 50 years.

Other papers, or “scans”, examine the future of space flight and methods to dramatically lengthen life spans.
