Looking at the Three Laws of Robotics, this video by PBS Off Book examines the new rules between humans and our eventual robotic overlords when they'll gain the intelligence and decision-making to kill us. You may also want to look at this video and be totally freaked out by this one.

As technology speeds forward, humans are beginning to imagine the day when robots will fill the roles promised to us in science fiction. But what should we be thinking about TODAY, as robots like military and delivery drones become a real part of our society? How should robots be programmed to interact with us? How should we treat robots? And who is responsible for a robot's actions? As we look at the unexpected impact of new technologies, we are obligated as a society to consider the moral and ethical implications of robotics.
