UK report says robots will have rights

The next time you beat your keyboard in frustration, think of a day where it may be able to sue you for assault. Within 50 years we might even find ourselves standing next to the next generation of vacuum cleaners in the voting booth.

Far from being extracts from the extreme end of science fiction, the idea that we may one day give sentient machines the kind of rights traditionally reserved for humans is raised in a British government-commissioned report which claims to be an extensive look into the future.

Visions of the status of robots around 2056 have emerged from one of 270 forward-looking papers sponsored by Sir David King, the UK governmentís chief scientist. The paper covering robotsí rights was written by a UK partnership of Outsights, the management consultancy, and Ipsos Mori, the opinion research organisation.

It's sad that Mr Asimov didn't witness this...
