"European lawmakers have proposed that robots be equipped with emergency 'kill switches' to prevent them from causing excessive damage."

CNN: Legislators have also suggested that robots be insured and even be made to pay taxes. by Ivana Kottasova

'The proposal on robot governance was approved by the European Parliament's legal affairs committee on Thursday. The issue will now be considered by the European Commission, which is the bloc's top regulator.

'"A growing number of areas of our daily lives are increasingly affected by robotics," said Mady Delvaux, the parliamentarian who authored the proposal. "To ensure that robots are and will remain in the service of humans, we urgently need to create a robust European legal framework."'
