I, Robot
(Isaac Asimov)

Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics:

? A Robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
? A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
? A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

"I, Robot" is the title of Asimov's first collection of short stories.
It consists of nine interesting tales regarding positronic robots,
united by a consistent narrative in which a reporter interviews the
character Susan Calvin about her time working with robots.
The positronic brains of Asimov's robots were intentionally designed
around the Three Laws, so that it was virtually impossible for the
robots to function without them. There were enough ambiguities in the
Three Laws to make for interesting stories, but there was only one
story in the collection, "Little Lost Robot", in which a robot posed
any real sort of danger to human beings.

Asimov's genius eventually does come through loud and clear in this
fascinating exploration, delving into and around an obscure robot
landscape. Although published in 1950, the book transcends time and
space, bringing us well beyond present day technologies and into a far
distant future of robotic evolution. Who would think robots would
have psychological abnormalities, political agendas or those that
question their own existence? Machines that are self-aware...

As technology advances we should pay special attention to that which we
depend on and trust electronically. Bank accounts, credit cards,
mortgages, ATMs', traffic lights, and a multitude of other computerized
electronic gizmos, which serve and guide our daily activities. From my
own personal experience, it's only when the machines backfire that we
begin to realize how lost we are with out them.
