The 3 laws of robotics posed by Isaac Asimov, were also discussed after a question from the audience about the real stage of implementation of these laws in robotics. Ricardo Domínguez said that we are far from the scenario posed by Asimov, but what was certain is that it will come, stressing the importance that, as a society, we are capable of taking decisions. Torras added some examples of codes of ethics in robotics, such as the Korean code, that develop these laws among other things, and at a very detailed level.
Ángeles Gómez, scientific advisor of the festival, stressed the importance of ROS Film Festival in creating a critical mass ready to assume and take responsibility for the technological challenges of the future, because otherwise, as Carme Torras pointed out, technologies will follow a development based on the interests of multinationals.
We are very happy with the result of our visit to Sitges, both by the interest shown in our Festival, and for establishing relationships with different entities related to cinema and science fiction, which could provide a major boost to this festival. We will keep you updated!
