If we are attacked by an intelligent robot, can we impose criminal liability upon robots? How can we defend ourselves legally? The technological world has changed rapidly. Simple human activities are being replaced by robots. As long as humanity used robots as mere tools, there was no real difference between robots and screwdrivers, cars or telephones. When robots became sophisticated, we used to say that robots "think" for us. The problem began when robots evolved from "thinking" machines into thinking machines (without quotation marks) – or Artificial Intelligence Robots (AI Robots). Could they become dangerous?
