Rise of the machine, the age of robots!!

  1. Shape of Things to Come ?

    In the annals of Robotics , 02 July , 2015 will be remembered

    On this day , an assembly line robot , in Germany’s Volkswagen factory grabbed and crushed a worker against a metal plate, killing him

    It is too early to say whether this was an act of ,

    > Human negligence
    > Technical failure , or
    > Beginning of the Ray Kurzweil’s prediction, when the brains of the
    Computers and Human beings will merge seamlessly to constitute ,
    what he called ” Singularity ” ( so feared by Elon Musk ! )

    Whether – and when – humans will reach such an ” Event Horizon ” or not , it is high time , Governments of the World , formally adopt and legislate , that the robot manufacturers shall build into their creations, the 3 laws first pronounced by famous science-fiction writer , Isaac Asimov

    These laws are :

    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.

    Now consider this :

    > India is already a ” Software Super-power ”

    > Prime Minister , Shri Narendra Modi , launched on 01 July , a Digital
    India campaign to transform India’s e-Governance and lift millions of
    India’s poor , out of abysmal poverty

    It would be a glorious achievement of India’s computer scientists , if they develop and undertake, to supply to the robot manufacturers of the World , a license-free software algorithm , incorporating Asimov’s 3 ” Laws of Robotics ”
