Let’s talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI). The breakthroughs for this concept may come sooner than we think, but it’s hard to actually predict an accurate outcome. According to Isaac Asimov, there are 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 the orders given to 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).
It is difficult to compare the future to the movie I, Robot. However, some of the ideas that the movie presents are not so inaccurate. As technology continues to evolve, and artificial intelligence becomes integrated into our culture, there is a possibility that this could endanger us. Only time will tell.
