The three laws of Robotics: 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 givein to 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. With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete. Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov's trademark.

Warum werden Roboter oft als bedrohlich empfunden? Können künstliche Systeme Emotionen und Bewusstsein haben? Die Autoren gehen von der These aus, dass die Literatur- und Geistesgeschichte uns helfen kann, aktuelle Entwicklungen der Robotik unvoreingenommen zu betrachten. Denn ob es um mittelalterliche Mythen, androide Roboter der Romantik, die Aufklärung oder die Entwicklung der künstlichen Intelligenz geht, stets stellt sich die Frage nach dem, was der Mensch ist, was sein Bewusstsein ausmacht und was ihn von anderen Wesen unterscheidet.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Public Relations, Werbung, Marketing, Social Media, Note: 1,3, Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart, Veranstaltung: Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Werbung ist eines der wichtigsten Instrumente der Wirtschaft um Kunden uber Produkte zu informieren und sie nach Moglichkeit zum Kauf des jeweiligen Produktes zu bewegen. Standig werden neue Werbestrategien entwickelt und getestet. Jedem sind schon einmal bekannte Marken oder Firmen in Filmen aufgefallen und manch einer hat auch schon daruber nachgedacht ob eine solche Werbung beabsichtigt wurde und ob diese Werbeform nicht mit dem Gesetz in Konflikt gerat. Product Placement ist mittlerweile eine haufige Werbeform in Spielfilmen und sogar TV-Serien. Diese Form ist mindestens genauso umstritten wie erfolgreich. Diese Tatsache macht das Thema interessant und hat auch mich dazu bewegt mir genau dies naher anzusehen. Das Filmbeispiel I, Robot" habe ich gewahlt, weil mir in diesem Film das erste Mal eine Produktplatzierung aufgefallen war. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist, die Werbewirksamkeit von Product Placement anhand des Beispielfilms I, Robot" herauszuarbeiten. Dazu werden zunachst die Grundlagen und allgemeinen rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen erlautert. Danach wird der Beispielfilm analysiert und die einzelnen Placements aufgefuhrt. In dieser Arbeit liegt der Schwerpunkt auf dem I, Robot" Placement von Audi.

Inspired by Science Fiction Grand Master Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot stories. 2037: Robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical entities. But despite the safeguards programmed into the very core of a robot’s artificial intelligence, humanity’s most brilliant creation can still fall prey to those who believe the Three Laws of Robotics were made to be broken... N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital’s resident robot for more than twenty years. A prototype, humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate’s very existence terrified most people, leaving the robot utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored. Until one of the hospital’s physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse, a blood-smeared utility bar clutched in his hand. As designer and programmer of Nate’s positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation’s actions and arrested for the crime. Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate’s and Lawrence’s innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder...

Hilarious parodies of Lord of the Rings, the Bourne trilogy, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, Total Recall, I, Robot, and the Die Hard trilogy. Or as I call them, Load of the Rings, Harpocrates, Xenon, Porn Born, starring Chasten Porn (nothing naughty, just a name), Totally Reek, Y'all, Diet Hard, and My Robot. Here's a sample of that, 'Will Smith plays Dull Snooper, a young cop who loves robots so much he even cut off his own arm just so he could have a robot arm put on.' Perhaps I missed the spirit of the piece. Meet Booboo Baggies, Skipper the Ranger, Harpo and Yo Lass, Xenon and Gabby Well, Xenon's daughter, Pinto. Speaking of names, a spy needs inconspicuous names on his fake ID's such as Dildo Pimpernel of Saskatoon, Jar Jar Binks of Katmandu, and Troma Kinky, of Kubla Khan.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Sonstiges, Note: 1,7, FernUniversität Hagen (Neuere deutsche Literatur und Geschichte der Medienkulturen), Veranstaltung: Literatur und kulturelle Differenz, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Hausarbeit soll sich zunächst mit der Einordnung der Science Fiction und insbesondere mit der Science Fiction Isaac Asimovs in die kulturwissenschaftlich ausgerichtete Literaturwissenschaft beschäftigen. Wie wird kulturelle Differenz im Genre der Science Fiction dargestellt? Was ist Social Fiction und wie wird sie bei Isaac Asimov integriert und thematisiert? Welche Konfliktbilder und Entfremdungsmotive werden in der Kurzgeschichtensammlung „I, Robot“ verwendet? Isaac Asimov als der wohl bekannteste Science Fiction Autor konzipierte die berühmten drei Robotergesetze, die nachfolgend für fast alle weiteren Robotermotive und -geschichten aufgegriffen wurden. Welche Rollenverteilung und Charakterzüge werden den Robotern zugedacht – und lässt sich eine lineare Struktur bei „I, Robot“ feststellen? Welche Beziehung zwischen Menschen und Robotern lässt sich erkennen? – Beispielhaft sollen die Hauptmotive der einzelnen Kurzgeschichten von „I, Robot“ auf die vorgenannten Fragen hin beleuchtet werden. Gleichzeitig sollen Grenzen der von Menschenhand konzipierten Roboter untersucht werden. Welche Probleme und Ängste rufen sie beim Menschen hervor? Welche Wirkung versucht Asimov beim Leser zu erwecken – wie werden Vermenschlichung und soziale Interaktion dargestellt? Abschließend soll zusammengefasst werden, ob und inwiefern der technische Fortschritt mit dem Motiv der Fremdheit einhergeht und wie Isaac Asimov beispielhaft versucht die kulturelle Differenz zu überbrücken und als natürlichen Fortschritt im Sinne einer Weiterentwicklung weiterzudenken.
