Cultural Heritage Management is an inherently retrospective discipline. To the detriment of future heritage management, some heritage places were not recognised and managed even though they had instant global significance after their creation (eg sites of the Apollo space program). The current revolution in robotic technologies, coupled with the developments in artificial intelligence, suggests that the creation of self-reflective robots capable of semi-independent thought (processes) is not too far away. This paper explores the conceptual and ethical issues heritage managers face when dealing with the heritage such robots will create.
