Lawyer Mark Deem of Cooley argues that questions of legal liability become impossible if we cannot switch off the machine. Deem wants to set clear limits on the role and responsibilities of robots and the humans who design, build and operate them.

Professor Joanna Bryson of the University of Bath replies that Artificial Intelligence is designed to work with humans, not against them: no emergency ‘off button’ required
