        An interesting article indeed. A bit more complicated than Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Laws_of_Robotics), I see. Though I’m not entirely convinced by the author’s argument: the “child in the way” problem is resolved by Asimov’s first law. Give us a hard one, Sir!

        The “stop button problem” also arises in 2001: A Space Odyssey, where HAL convinces itself it knows better than Dave.

        Is it a criminology problem, an ethics problem, a philosophy problem, or “just” a computing problem? I guess it hinges on reaching the point where the AI is self-aware and fully responsible for its own actions. The prisons are full of people whose judgement is impaired but I guess arresting an entity like Lisa might require a RoboCop 🙂

    Her dreams contradict reality: people don’t feel free at all. Then again, it is just a dream, so it’s not surprising it doesn’t conform with reality.
