    I would not use robots as servants, I would like them as friends.

  • On Dec 28, 2017, sgrm said: no it wouldnt be right

    unfortunately they need to be unplugged. They will be to smart and the world is not ready for that.

  • On Dec 23, 2017, Lostintime said: No I

    No I would feel right about it

  • On Dec 22, 2017, meredithfl said: Mixed feelings...

    The only way for them to develop a consciousness is for us to program them to have one. And aren't we creating robots to serve us? I'd say yes, but would depend on how the consciousness develops.

  • On Dec 22, 2017, Nikolina said: robots

    No, I don't think so...

  • On Dec 21, 2017, ELF said: The I, Robot conundrum

    With true consciousness comes great responsibility and ethical challenges, so I think the question of free will has to be contemplated and probably precludes servantship.

  • On Dec 20, 2017, ljwaters said: robots

    no nothing with the ability to think for itself should be used against it's will

  • On Dec 20, 2017, gemiinii said: Robots

    No. I would not feel right using them like that If they are aware of what is going on.

  • On Dec 20, 2017, Cristene M said: Robots

    I would think it would depend on the programming but otherwise no it wouldn’t be ok to use them as slaves

  • On Dec 20, 2017, Swanangel said: Nope

    If they do, it's time to pull the plug on all robots and just stop using them. Or better yet, not use them in the first place. I've seen I Robot.

  • On Dec 20, 2017, gaborss said: Robots and Consciousness

    My question is: What kind of consciousness - would they develop their own individually or would people's minds be uploaded into their bodies? Either way, it would mean that humans are so far advanced that we would be playing god. That's a frightening scenario.

  • On Dec 20, 2017, AshleyAnne said: Robots

    If robots develop a consciousness, no they should not be used as servants. It's not okay.

  • On Dec 20, 2017, WendyRinebold said: Robots

    If they have a consciousness, then they may refuse to be servants. Just as some humans choose to, robots may also choose to.

    WOULD LOVE TO READ THIS

    "is it okay to use them as servants" I dont think so.

  • On Dec 19, 2017, wordygirl said: Servants? More like slaves.

    If robots exhibited a self-awareness but had no ability to choose their roles, using them as servants would actually be using them as slaves, which would not be morally acceptable, in my opinion.

  • On Dec 19, 2017, demonsangel said: Robots

    It depends. I think they should be given the choice.

  • On Dec 19, 2017, Sue A said: When is a robot more than just a robot?

    I think you have to evaluate the level of their consciousness, before we make a decision. After all many animals have consciousness and yet we work them. Horses, dogs, etc.

  • On Dec 19, 2017, Allie Weinzapfel said: Robots

    No, not servents.

  • On Dec 19, 2017, ygodinez said: Robots as servants

    They should be given the choice as whether they want to be servants of not. If they have a conscious they probably have feelings too

  • On Dec 17, 2017, sunshinehdfan said: robots

    Yes of course

  • On Dec 15, 2017, honeyb said: Robots as Servants

    No I wouldn't think so

  • On Dec 14, 2017, Karla Eakin said: I feel and think so I am alive

    If their conscience still allows them to be happy serving than why not. But if it makes them sad you have to set them free.

  • On Dec 14, 2017, bookwormbabe said: Umm no

    I don't think so.

  • On Dec 13, 2017, ElenaB said: Robot

    They are still robots, so I say yes

  • On Dec 11, 2017, Didi said: If robots develop a consciousness, is it okay to use them as servants?

    Sure. Why not. Or I'd prefer the term house/personal assistant instead of servant.

  • On Dec 11, 2017, cezovski said: Contest

    My first thought would be to say, "Sure, why not?"

  • On Dec 10, 2017, clojo said: Robots

    This is an awesome question... I would say yes but only if it was their choice. -- CJ

  • On Dec 10, 2017, kcharlton said: robot question

    Um.. I would start to probably befriend them but also require their assistance..not "use" them, but as I would hire a house keeper etc

  • On Dec 08, 2017, Renald said: movie A1

    A consciousness, everyone works for pay check to pay their bills. It's a choice.

  • On Dec 08, 2017, DebraTaylor said: Robots

    Very exciting idea. I would say keep an open mind and give them a choice.

  • On Dec 08, 2017, Tashia Jennings said: I would say yes!

    Give them a choice, if they are being paid a wage it wouldn't be any different from a human.

    Thank you for this wonderful chance!

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Amy Storch said: Servants

    If they began to show self awareness I think I would use people who choose to be servants, instead.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, starsunraveling said: I think

    at that point it should be up to them

  • On Dec 07, 2017, marybelle said: Robot servants

    If humans can be servants so can robots.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, lasvegasnan said: Servants

    It should be their choice.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, onyiakpanisi said: Robots

    Yes, I will make use of them. But with caution though

  • On Dec 07, 2017, AnemicOak said: Bots as servants

    Servants? Sure...

    Slaves? No...

  • On Dec 07, 2017, EvelynS said: Robots

    No, unless they wanted to be.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Rkcjmomma said: Robot

    I wouldnt unless they wanted to do it!

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Bmhy said: Robot

    If the robot enjoys working as a servant and is treated fairly, it would be okay.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, AnneM said: Robots

    No.

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Msredk said: Robots as servants

    Only if they are ok doing so

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Lisaward said: Contest

    I think it would be okay

    But I think I would be more apt to treat them more as a person..

  • On Dec 07, 2017, somerss said: Sandy said Robots

    As long as it is a sexy, male, human looking robot who attends to my every whim. And doesn't talk back. LOL!

  • On Dec 07, 2017, Ingeborg said: Robots

    Sure I think it would be okay.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, angienb said: Robots

    If they choose to be then why not let them. It's not different than hiring a human servant. As long as they made that choice and not forced.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, Carol L said: Robots

    I don't think I could use anyone as a servant. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, DebbyG said: Robots

    They can do anything.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, Cheryl said: robots

    Yes, if they have a choice in the matter.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, Judy Thomas said: Robots

    Servants yes , for a fair and equal pay, but slaves, No!

  • On Dec 06, 2017, SuzReadsBooks said: Robot Servants

    I wouldn't be comfortable. Thanks for this amazing giveaway - I would love to win!

  • On Dec 06, 2017, kaylizmc said: Robots

    I do not think they should be used as servants if they have consciences.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, Michelle Willms said: Servants

    If they AGREE to WORK as servants, and are receiving fair and equitable pay (compared to humans), then yes. Otherwise, absolutely not.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, DLuscan said: Robot Servants

    If they have consciences, then it would be their choice if they wanted to be employed in the service industry.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, JamesRobert said: robot

    I think it would have to be the robots choice and not something demanded of them.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, MzVeeAye said: I think...

    if they have a conscious they should be treated like people and since people are servants I would say yes!

  • On Dec 06, 2017, eswright said: If robots develop a consciousness, is it okay to use them as servants?

    Sure. I would love to have one, too.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, hpicone said: Robot servants

    People work as servants. Robots need to earn their living. Servants not slaves.

  • On Dec 06, 2017, angie booklover said: Is it okay for robots with a conscious to be servants?

    I don't think it's fair to use them as servants because they have a mind, a conscious. Therefore, they have feelings.

  • On Dec 05, 2017, KarenH said: robots/servants?

    They should not be enslaved. The choice to serve or not should be left to them.

  • On Dec 05, 2017, Ivythebookgeek said: Robots or Servants?

    No, it would be wrong.

  • On Dec 05, 2017, AmbieRose said: Robots be servants?

    I guess it would depend on the robot if that is what they want to serve or not. Thank you for the chance!

  • On Dec 04, 2017, Jodi Hunter said: Not An Idea I would Love

    I would not be comfortable with it.

  • On Dec 04, 2017, shorty said: Robots

    I would not feel good about using them as servants

  • On Dec 01, 2017, bncandg said: re:

    not sure

  • On Dec 01, 2017, KGOLDMAN said: Thanks

    If robots develop consciousness than the choice to serve should be theirs.

    Thanks for the chance
