Would the imposition of Asimov's three laws of robotics make a robot act in a Buddhist manner?
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
In this case I think we can associate "human" with "higher power or morality" - be that suttas, kamma, laws, or whatever.
