Intelligence Artificial (IA) - Laws of Robotics

1 - Laws

In 1942, Isaac Asimov introduced three laws of robotics in his short story “Runaround”.

They were as follows:

  • 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.

He later added a fourth law, the zeroth law:

  • 0. A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
