EU plans first law on robotics

The European Parliament will look at a draft resolution relating to the regulation of robotics. The text could become the basis for the first European legislation on automation and robots. In addition to ethical issues, liability risks, and other dangers humans could face, EU politicians will also be looking at the changes that could be forced on the world by automation becomes more prevalent.

Members of the European Parliament fear that widespread use of robotics could have adverse impact on the labor market. The draft resolution calls on the European Commission to start monitoring job trends more closely so that it can better identify where positions are being created and lost. If automation turns out to be a ‘job killer’, the report insists that a general basic income should be seriously considered.
