Asimov's Laws of Robotics aren't the moral guidelines they appear to be
Seventy-five years ago, the celebrated science fiction writer Isaac Asimov published a short story called Runaround . Set on Mercury, it features a sophisticated robot nicknamed Speedy that has been ordered to gather some of the chemical selenium for two human space adventurers. Speedy gets near the selenium, but a toxic gas threatens to destroy the robot. When it retreats from the gas to save itself, the threat recedes and it feels obliged to go back for the selenium.

Minimum wage hike ignores impact of Artificial Intelligence
The minimum wage is rising in many parts of Canada. Recently, Ontario’s Liberal government announced it’s hiking its minimum wage to $15 an hour, matching the move by Alberta’s NDP. In the United States, the push for a higher minimum wage began in 2013 when brave fast-food workers in New York walked off their jobs. The movement, known as Fast Food Forward, was aimed at fast-food chains but garnered political attention, prompting changes in the minimum wage across the United States.
Airlines take no chances with our safety. And neither should artificial intelligence
You’d thinking flying in a plane would be more dangerous than driving a car. In reality it’s much safer , partly because the aviation industry is heavily regulated. Airlines must stick to strict standards for safety, testing, training, policies and procedures, auditing and oversight. And when things do go wrong, we investigate and attempt to rectify the issue to improve safety in the future. It’s not just airlines, either.

What I learned as a prisoner in North Korea | Euna Lee
In March 2009, North Korean soldiers captured journalist Euna Lee and her colleague Laura Ling while they were shooting a documentary on the border with China. The courts sentenced them to 12 years of hard labor, but American diplomats eventually negotiated their release. In this surprising, deeply human talk, Lee shares her experience living as the enemy in a detention center for 140 days -- and the tiny gestures of humanity from her guards that sustained her.
