It's always the same with optimization: you have to include all relevant factors into the definition of 'optimal'. In case of robots, the well-being must be in there, or it will be optimized out of the equation.

Of course, there will always be ruthless industrialists who don't care about the well-being of their workers and therefore *don't* include it in _their_ optimization, not realizing that in the end the robots will factor him out as well...
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
