      Paraphrasing here...


      0) A robot may do nothing to harm humanity, or, through inaction allow humanity to come to harm.
      1) A robot my do nothing to harm a human, or, through inaction allow a human to come to harm, except where that comes in conflict with the zeroth law.
      2) A robot must follow orders given by a human except where doing so would conflict with the first or zeroth law.
      3) A robot must act to preserve itself except where that would come in conflict with the second, first or zeroth law.

      The Three Laws of Robotics...awesome post!

      Isaac Asimov was my favorite author. I loved his Robot series of books, and the way it tied in to the Foundation series.

      Asimov is an awesome writer and created my favorite sci-fi universe. Some of the science sounds dated now but he's such a good writer that I can easily overlook what would normally enrage me.

      Robots, Foundation, and Empire. Great books.

      I so wanted to meet him...and then he died. I was sad.

      He consulted on movies like Star Trek:The Motion Picture and several of his short stories turned in to movies.


      I loved his puns.


      A good Robot book.

      I read that as the first of three books from "Murder and Robots". The other two were "Naked Sun" and "Robots of Dawn". I've read all the foundation books (I read them first) but haven't read the Empire series. I'll have to get around to it soon.

      I think you will like it. They really all tie together so well. I may have to pull them all out and read them again to get a good grasp on everything that I missed the first time.

      It's good that he wrote the Laws of Robotics. Some of the best sci-fi authors have done so much to shape our world, and our future, and it's neat to see these visions come to fruition.

      You guys are awesome. Also, as a former moderator, I would have left this in the ask me about/tell me about section. I mean - look at the title of the thread!

      Everything I know about robots? I rather dislike them; they make me feel threatened.

      Also they are quite overrated.

      Robots are pretty cool, I guess.

      People seem to think that robots will overpower us for some reason. Like, in a deadly way.

      The thing is, robots only have as much power as we give them.

      Also, I'm going to robotics classes this summer. Yay!

      Why would you feel threatened by them?

      Robots could never replace people.

      The term "robot" comes from Czech writer Karel Čapek and his novel (not really sure if it was novel) R.U.R. Rather trivial information.

      They can't replace us, but they can kill us. Plus, the Defense Department is authorizing the use of fully-automated spy drones. I wouldn't put it past them to have fully-automated missile-strike drones in the future.
