    • Eric, I find your topic concerning the ethical responsibilities of artificial intelligence intriguing, and I would like to help you further your research. After digging around a little bit, I came across this website that holds five basic principals of robotics, similar to those you have already presented:

      “Robots should not be designed as weapons, except for national security reasons.
      Robots should be designed and operated to comply with existing law, including privacy.
      Robots are products: as with other products, they should be designed to be safe and secure.
      Robots are manufactured artefacts: the illusion of emotions and intent should not be used to exploit vulnerable users.
      It should be possible to find out who is responsible for any robot.”

      I feel as though you can do a lot more with this topic, and I would like to see what research you will present in the future. Thank you for sharing.
