Dico S.F. – New laws of robotics

Introduced by Roger MacBride Allen in his Caliban trilogy, the New Laws of Robotics are derived from the original Isaac Asimov’s Three Laws and adapted to make robots less dependent from humans.

There are four of them[1]I wrote those Laws by translating them from the French language. If you know the correct Laws, please let me know.:

  • New First Law: « A robot may not harm a human being. »
  • New Second Law: « A robot must cooperate with human beings, except if that cooperation is in contradiction with the First Law. »
  • New Third Law: « A robot must protect its existence, except if that protection is in contradiction with the First Law. »
  • New Fourth Law: « A robot can act as he pleases, except if its actions are in contradiction with the First, the Second and the Third Law. »

Matching words : Positronic, Robot, Three Laws of robotics
