The European Parliament is taking an interest in robots. The workers of the future are already among us and MEPs want to legislate on them as soon as possible. Some of the questions that need to be answered include: What is the legal personality of a robot? And in the event of an accident or another type of failure, who is responsible; the manufacturer, the programmer, the user or the robot itself?
Members of the European Parliament also advocate the introduction of a so-called robot tax to mitigate the social consequences of an increased reliance on robots.
