Fighting the bots: the right to be human

In view of lockdown restrictions and the mass shift to remote communication in many walks of life (work, study, personal relationships), the problem of distinguishing a human from a robot is especially acute.

The development of malicious AI that feeds on personal data has led to the emergence of fake bots that deceive people by posing as friends or relatives in video chats. Even legitimate AI assistants, due to frequent glitches and non-human responses, have begun to annoy users. This has produced a wave of botphobia and the emergence of new tools to detect and block bots.

AI makers are trying to fight this trend with legislation: in countries governed by anonymous technocrats, digital identities are granted certain rights, thus obliging citizens to treat bots with respect.

But in countries where humanist ideals are still alive, a "cultural revolution" is underway, aimed at restoring the rights of people. Here, there has been a reversal of the laws of robotics, the first of which states that people always have the right to know whether they are communicating with a fellow human or a machine. Also enshrined are the right to be served by a human instead of a robot, the right to an extrajudicial shutdown of machines considered a threat, and a handful of other such rights that clearly demean and discriminate against inorganic life forms.
