Robotics and artificial intelligence hold enormous promise but raise a variety of ethical and legal concerns, including with respect to privacy. Robotics and artificial intelligence implicate privacy in at least three ways. First, they increase our capacity for surveillance. Second, they introduce new points of access to historically private spaces such as the home. Finally, they trigger hardwired social responses that can threaten several of the values privacy protects. Responding to the privacy implications of robotics and artificial intelligence is likely to require a combination of design, law, and education.
