The definition of Robotics is well known to every person in this time. Robot, A machine which can be able to do every type of complex work, not carried out by Humans. For many people it is a machine corresponding to Human like creature. We are going to talk about three law of robotics and on which bases, Android like robot like working

As it is shown in many Hollywood sci- fi movies like Androids in Star Wars, Terminator and Star Trek: the Next Generation, these artificially intelligence machine are very friendly to Humans but at the same time, they are biggest enemy for our Humankind. However, such Robots only exist in science – fiction movies.

In real life, An Industrial Robot is a reprogrammable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move martial, parts, tools, or specialized devices through variable programmed motion for performing verities of task. Chandrayan – T (Moon Mission, India) and Phoenix (Mars Mission, NASA) are well known examples.


Robots don’t have feelings like Humans as it is just a Machine. But many futurists, philosophers and science – fiction writer believes that we are approaching in the time where smart machines becomes much smarter, stronger and faster than their creators, and one – day they become self – conscious i.e. they have feelings like Humans.

Isaac Asimov, one of the forefathers of Robot fiction, invented just a simple code, which is called Asimov’s Three Law of Robotics. In his science fiction novels, “I-Robot” he gave a code which consists of three Law assigned to each, robot’s “positronic brain,” a fictional computer that gives robots something of a human – like consciousness.

These Three Law of Robotics are

  1.  First Law:  A Robot may not injure a human being or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. Second Law:  A Robot must obey the orders give it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the first law.
  3. Third Law:  A Robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.


Asimov is a good science fiction writer and he spent a so much time of his writing to the subject of Robots. He tried to solve the problems of how robots would interact with humans one they have some degree of free will. He can try to explain these with his three laws.

But is it enough? The answer is ‘no’.  This is because there are some faults in these three laws. If one law applies, then the one gives faulty results and vice – versa.

But one thing is clear; the robots in Asimov’s novels are friendly. They are just a structure of metal taking a shape of Humanoid form, like the robots which we imagine today having real skin, hairs even a special genetic code and circulatory system. They are friends, lovers, co – workers and may be possibly a sexual partner in future. They can conceive children’s, teach students in schools and colleges. That is why these facts put some important questions?

How ethical are these laws?

How much feasible?

Will these laws save us and destroy us?

What happens next, no – one can know clearly, but one thing is clear, the future will be going to become over populated not because of Humans but Robots.
