are the three laws of robotics really safe??? 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 to 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.
wasn't there a zeroth law added
Are there any real laws?
It would just be media sensationalism if a robot killed somebody by mistake
The whole point of Asimov's book is to show where the laws fail See this:http://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=7001829QuoteAre there any real laws?yeap . . . if your robot injures or kills a human, expect your company to get sued out of existence unless of course its a military robot, in which case the 3 laws are counter-productive . . .QuoteIt would just be media sensationalism if a robot killed somebody by mistakeActually, robots have killed people already . . .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Williams_(robot_fatality)http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2006/1/8/nation/13054882&sec=nation
