A modern interdisciplinary research field lying at the intersection of applied ethics and robotics, which studies and attempts to understand and regulate the ethical implications and consequences of robotics technology, particularly of intelligent/autonomous robots, in our society.

Four Laws of Roboethics
- “A robot may not injure a human being, or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey the 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 1st or 2nd Law
- No robot may harm humanity or, through inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.”
