Transcript of Copy of Robots

Introduction and history
different opinions equal different definitions
The Oxford Dictionary states: “a robot is a machine capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically, especially one programmable by a computer”
~322 B.C. Aristotle quotes:
“If every tool, when ordered, or even of its own accord, could do the work that befits it... then there would be no need either of apprentices for the master workers or of slaves for the lords.”

1921 Karel Capek introduces “robota”

1940 Isaac Asimov’s “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 Law.
Later, Asimov adds the Zeroth Law:
A robot may not injure humanity, or, through inaction allow humanity to come to harm.
