General Purpose Robots Should Not Be WeaponizedAn Open Letter to the Robotics Industry and our Communities. We believe that advanced mobile robots will provide great benefit to society as co-workers in industry and companions in our homes. As with any new technology offering new capabilities, the emergence of advanced mobile robots offers the possibility of misuse. Weaponized applications of these newly capable robots will also harm public trust in the technology in ways that damage the tremendous benefits they will bring to society.
