In the fall of the same year I went to Ingolstadt, October 2017, Saudi Arabia granted a realistic-looking humanoid robot named Sophia Saudi Arabian citizenship. The announcement caused an uproar. A robot was being granted rights in a country that had barely announced (and not yet implemented) women’s right to drive cars!

В 2017 году София получила права гражданки Саудовской Аравии — страны, в которой претесняют права «человеческих» женщин

We’ve domesticated oxen to plow our fields and learned to ride horseback, extending ourselves and our societies in new ways physically and economically. We’ve created pigeon delivery systems, set loose flaming pigs to ward off elephant attacks, and trained dolphins to detect underwater mines. From the beginning of laws known to humankind, we’ve dealt with the question of responsibility when autonomous beasts cause harm, even putting animals themselves on trial for the crimes they committed. And we’ve also extended ourselves socially: throughout history, we’ve treated most animals as tools and products, but have also made some of them our friends.

In collecting some of the parallels in the past, present, and future of our relationships to both animals and robots, I’ve found that using animals to think through our most pressing concerns changes a lot of conversations. Just like animals, robots don’t need to be a one-to-one replacement for our jobs or relationships. Instead, robots can enable us to work and love in new ways.

Компаративистский метод книги: сравнение того, как развивались отношнения человека с животными / роботами, что приводит к главному тезису книги: робот, как и животное в прошлом, не заменит человека, а научит работать и любить новыми способами.
