Your bioethics movie of the week deals with robot ethics.
Your bioethics movie of the week deals with robot ethics. Robot and Frank, with Frank Langella and Susan Sarandon as the humans and Rachel Ma and Peter Sarsgaard as the robot, depicts a time not too far away when children supply ageing parents on the verge of dementia with robot carers. In this case, the robot has been programmed to do the housework, but isn’t aware that stealing is wrong. What its manufacturer needed was a moonlighting bioethicist to rewrite its job description. The film has an 85% rating in Rotten Tomatoes. Click here to see the trailer.
