Back in 2015, a hitchhiker was murdered on the streets of Philadelphia...
It was no ordinary crime however as the hitchhiker was actually a robot called Hitchbot.
The 'death' raised an interesting question about human - robot relationships - no so much about whether we can trust robots but whether robots can trust us.
The answer it seems, was no.
Luckily the story ends well and Hitchbot has now been rebuilt at Ryerson University. So can a robot be murdered? I personally think it depends on whether the robot has AI or not. What do you think?
