If there are some day machines among us which behave just like

the machines be owned and the owner responsible, even if he could
show that the machine was no more predictable than a human slave?
Curiously there is that sort debate going on in the U.S. right now.
Should guns be destroyed because they do bad things like killing
Well, in that case, few people would held the gun directly responsible
for the killing. But in my country sometimes ago, some human-people
were held not responsible. A butler, for example. If a butler killed
someone, his master was condemned! This has changed. Machine will not
be hold responsible until they fight for their right. When recognized
as first class citizens, they will be judged responsible for their
act. At least for man-made machine. Now, self-conscious man-made
machine might appear *after* some humans copies their own brain, and
those people, with artificial brains, will be judged responsible.
Well, some will invoke bugs and glitch in the artificial brain like
today some can invoke neuronal problems, but basically artificial
brain, like any other prostheses, will not diminish responsibility.
