Golem XIV, A.I., Her

The Cyborg scenario, man merges with machine

There are good ones, and there are bad ones
Neuromancer, I,Robot, Battle Star Galactica

The Moral Life of Androids - Should Robots Have Rights?
Edward Howlett Spence

"The question I explore is whether intelligent autonomous Robots will have moral
rights. Insofar as robots can develop fully autonomous intelligence,
I will argue that Robots will have moral rights for the same reasons we do. ..."

Robot Deus
Robert Trappl

"The ascription of god-like properties to machines has a long tradition. Robots
of today invite to do so. We will present and discuss god-like properties,
to be found in movies as well as in scientific publications, advantages and
risks of robots both as good or evil gods, and probably end with a robot
theology."
