Asimov at 102: That We Art Mindful of His Three Laws

Asimov’s birthday provides an opportunity to examine his robots that did not follow the Three Laws and what that means for real robots.

Read the Science Robotics article A retrospective of Isaac Asimov at 102 and his Three Laws where I discuss how Asimov directly addresses the issue of intelligence versus autonomy in “… That Thou Art Mindful of Him.” That story explicitly acknowledges that many field and service robots do not need the full set of the Three Laws.
