Maslow’s Hierarchy of Robot Needs

You may be familiar with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Abraham Maslow’s path-setting psychological theory, most often represented as a pyramid illustrating the precedence that basic needs (food and shelter; safety and security) have over ‘higher’ and more abstract ones, the pinnacle of which is “self-actualization.” This, apparently, is how it works for robots.
