Robots presently are constructed to be dead, inanimate but the fact remains that these creatures are advanced with the artificial intelligence just like the humans. Their artificial intelligence and capability makes them posses the nature of human behavior. The present debate lies in whether these artificial should accorded rights which are preserved for humans. The definition of rights associated with robots has been on high increase and a problem historically. These rights lie on historical background, political and cultural fields strongly agree that Robots with human characteristics should be given the rights associated with humans (Rodney, 1).
First, these are creatures that can directly walk like humans, talk like human and detect faces and have beginning of human social responses. Therefore, the question focuses on why they should not be given the rights associated with humans. They are becoming more than humanlike barring a complete failure of the mechanistic view of life. As humans we might see robots as our own right not as our mechanical slaves and not as our products, as ours to buy and sell but also entities in there own right therefore we are supposed to incline the rightness of right less.
The world is changing with technology and as humans we are supposed to acknowledge the rights of existence and the duties carried out by these machines. This shall help us develop a positive relationship between us and these inanimate but important creatures. Robots are actually artificial creatures with intelligence which compares to our own intelligence therefore the human intelligence can also be applied by the robots (Peterson, 2). That means that the chores as well as the human labor in the factories can also be done by the robots. Therefore, the development of the robots in places like the home, hospitals and even factories will be of high advantage.
