Isaac Asimov wrote that he was born in 1920, the very year when the word “robot” appeared. This is very symbolic. Azimov, who was born in the town of Petrovichi, Gomel Province, USSR, graduated from Columbia University, worked as a chemistry professor at Boston University, and wrote more than 300 scientific and fiction works. And all this together did not glorify the American scientist and writer Isaac Asimov as much as the Three Laws of Robotics from the short story Runaround, included in the I, Robot collection:
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 Laws.
