Maybe they should do a study....then analyze it....then tell us what we already know.....Robots are not to be trusted.

Another interesting point made in the article..
Quote:

"We should view ourselves as a species in transition," said Michael Jin, a 20-year-old sophomore and founding member of the group.......

..... Jin, who says it is possible and desirable to engineer away psychological flaws such as selfishness. "This is a troubling aspect of human nature and something we could actually fix,'' he said.
20 year old sophomores are leading the way on these thing....hence the misunderstanding that selfishness is a Psychological flaw....
It is that "flaw" drives all our economies...and most of our human interactions. If you get rid of that you get rid of humanity itself...
