Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics"
  • - A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  • -  A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  • - A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

"Instead of laws to restrict robot behavior, we think robots should be empowered to maximize the possible ways they can act so they can pick the best solution for any given scenario." - Scientific American
