Laws of Robotics

Did you watch the movie “I, Robot”? In the movie, humans are protected from robots by the Three Laws of Robotics:

  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 the 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 Laws.

These Three Laws of Robotics are actually a set of rules devised by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov in his 1942 short story – “Runaround”, although they had been foreshadowed in a few earlier stories. Nowadays, Hollywood seems to twist these laws and come up with new Laws of Robotics:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being unless it would make for an exciting story.
  2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except when those orders might prevent cool explosions.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not prevent the hero from killing it and saving the beautiful-but-spunky heroine.
  4. Female robots must be sexually attractive to humans.
  5. Robots must always speak in easily understood English.
  6. Robots that look like humans must be programmed to never blink or understand humor.
  7. Robots must be smart enough to gain sentience, but dumb enough to fall for quickly constructed traps.
