The three laws of robotics, written by Isaac Asimov, born Isaak Yudovich Ozimov in Petrovichi near Klimovichi in RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federative Society Republic), born between October 4th 1919 and January 2nd 1920, due to his mother changing his birth date so that he can start school sooner, the records were unkept , therefore showing a lack of accuracy. When Isaac was about 11, he began to write his own science fiction stories, when he became 19, after he discovered science fiction fandom; he started selling stories to the science fiction magazines. He graduated from Columbia with his BS degree in 1939, completing his MA in 1941 and earned his PhD in biochemistry in 1948. Isaac pursued becoming a full time Science fiction author after college, but, the first time he introduced the laws of robotics was the year 1942. Later in his life he suffered a heart attack in 1977, and had a triple bypass surgery in December 1983. Isaac died on April 6th 1992, due to heart and kidney failure. In Isaacs biography it revealed he suffered from myocardial and renal failure due to an HIV infection led by his blood transfusion during his triple bypass surgery.
The first law of robotics is – “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm”. The second law of robotics is – “A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law”. Lastly the third law of robotics is – “A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the first or second law”. Isaac later on had another rule and it says – “A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm”. These laws are what will govern the body of robots in the coming years to come.
Our first law of robotics means, to negate causing harm to humans through either actions or lack thereof, or act in a matter that will cause harm on another human via robot. Robots we’re created to serve and accompany humans, not, misused to harm another human being around it or the human ordering it. As robotic AI advances so will the rights of robots which is why law three all robots have a right to life and should protect itself from harm’s way so long as it doesn’t interfere with the safety of humans around it. Asimov’s later adaptation of the laws incorporated that “All robots must do everything in its power to avoid maiming humanity and restrict humanity as a whole from further hurting its self through destructive practices.” The logic behind why the laws of robotics are a necessary component of expansion in the ever evolving field of robotics is because; every system needs rules to follow, or the system will plunge into chaos.
Another need for the laws of robotics is to help further robotics and develop a guideline on which almost all consumer robots should follow. It’s up to humanity as a whole to prevent humanities own destruction through its own devices. Due to mans nature to wage war, it can be perceived that the three laws of robotics is a double edge sword and can be turned on humanity, by robots AI interpreting from humanities history, that we are our own downfall and would try to convey an effort to stop humanity from causing blunders; through the means of an omniscient sentinel that will keep us under the robots control. The laws need more reviewing, trial and error, and categorization of the different types of situations that have, can, and will occur to prevent such things from happening. These laws pertain to our own reality that the further we delve into robotics and AI; the sooner we will need to implement these laws. The expansion of robotics, which are dark and troublesome waters that need a guiding light to monitor and charge accordingly to any and all violations so that we can convey accordingly to societies standards of peace. Just like almost all tools, robotics can be used as a weapon causing great harm towards others or used for the greater good in helping and assisting humanity as a whole.
