Robotics

The below lists various applications of Robotics using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.


Isaac Asimov's "Laws of Robotics"

 

 

0. A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
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 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 Law.
