TED Talks on Killer Robots and Improving Lives

Presents a different road to a better world while preventing killer robots ...
The recommended TED talks by the novelist Daniel Suarez: "The kill decision shouldn't belong to a robot:" http://www.ted.com/talks/daniel_suarez_the_kill_decision_shouldn_t_belong_to_a_robot.html and by architect Paul Pholeros, "How to reduce poverty? Fix homes:" http://www.ted.com/talks/paul_pholeros_how_to_reduce_poverty_fix_homes.html may seem at odds with each other, but both discuss and explore building a better future. In the first, denying robots the independent decision making power to take human life will end a very potent threat to democracy itself. In the second, better housing for all leads to healthier living for all and a more democratic, robust society. Both work toward a better future from two very different directions.

What decision will you make today to build a better tomorrow for yourself and for others?
