Isaac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics”

In the age of robotics and automation we should be aware of Issac Asimov’s three rules of robotics. Human beings need to be mindful of these rules when building and programming these aware machines. Smart and forward thinking from this noted futurist and writer.

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm

2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

One thought on “Isaac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics””

  1. I’ve recently re-read the Robot series, which was one of the formative sci fi readings of my youth. Now I’m delving into the rest of the Empire and Foundation novels, most of which I never got to (because my parents didn’t have a complete set!)

    He was such a genius!
