I, Robot
(Isaac Asimov)

The beauty of Isaac Asimov's robot series was the innovative thinking underlying the behavior and the functions oforiginal futuristicrobots within human society. Before Asimov, the concept of robots in science-fiction was limited to a machine created by a mad scientist. Inevitably, the machine would turn against the creator andwreak havoc around the place of its creation. However, Asimov's vision went beyond the murderous machines of the 1920s and 1930s. He realized that robots could very well have complicated behavior patterns as their programmers would seek more and more advanced features to mimic human behavior. He then imagined how the evolution of technology could take place.

In the beginning, robots would be primitive in their abilities, applications, and public uses. Their look would be so foreign that their commercial appeal to become "domestic" robots would be very slim. So, the logical following step would be to designrobots with more and more resemblance to human anatomy and looks in order to facilitate their inclusion within human society and households. The other goal was to program a robotic brain able to handle life-like interactions with human beings. Asimov then imagined its design and its name: the positronic brain with the three laws of robotics:

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

These laws were central to all the robot stories from Asimov and are mentioned in virtually all of them. Their importance is the base of Asimov's stories. Robots have interactions with humans that may interfere with one of the laws. The main focus of the story is how the robots work out the conflicts and how it affects their relationship with humans. Asimov crafted, in the most amazing ways, fascinating plots in which moral, scientific, ethical, socio-economic factors are explored in the context of the introduction of artifical intelligence in people's daily life. After reading his stories, the reader imagines and can clearly see that the future, asdescribed by Isaac Asimov, is a very tangible one.

Asimov wastruly a visionary. Artificial Intelligenceresearch laboratories have adopted his three laws. Now, how many writers see their invention used commonly in any scientific field? Not many.That is why you must read Asimov's robot series because it will amaze you!
