Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Robots, philosophy: robot is a concept for technically realized spatially delimited mechanically acting systems that are able to fulfill defined tasks. The tasks are communicated to the system by means of a code. Further developments concern the increase of possible interfaces to the external world such as artificial sensory organs as well as the flexibility of possible responses of the system to commands. See also artificial intelligence, artificial consciousness, connectivity, learning, machine learning, neural networks, systems, zombies, autonomy, ethics.
