THE CLASSIC COLLECTION OF ROBOT STORIES FROM THE MASTER OF THE GENRE.

Earth is ruled by master-machines but the Three Laws of Robotics have been designed to endure humans maintain the upper hand:

1) A robot may not injure a human being or allow a human being to come to harm.

2) A robot must obey orders given 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.

But what happens when a rogue robot's idea of what is good for society contravenes the Three Laws?

Review of 'Yo, robot' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Colección de relatos cortos en los que Asimov plantea las tres leyes de la robótica. Escritos en los 50, se nota de forma perceptible el paso del tiempo por ellos. Sin embargo, su importancia para el resto del universo, la concepción social que supuso de los Robots, las leyes y que los relatos están basados en la psicología y aspectos sociales de los robots, lo hacen un imprescindible (y origen) del universo de Asimov.
