    Robot A robot is a machine especially one programmable by a computer capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically Robots can be guided by an external control device or the control may be embedded within Robots may be constructed to take on human form but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to how they look. Robotics Etymology The word robotics was derived from the word robot, which was introduced to the public by Czech writer Karel apek in his play R.U.R Rossum s Universal Robots , which was published in The word robot comes from the Slavic word robota, which means labour work.The play begins in a factory that makes artificial people called robots, creatures who can be mistaken for humans Will Robots Take My Job Find out how susceptible is your job to computerization Uptime Robot Free Website Uptime Monitoring Downtime Happens Get Notified Monitors, Checked Every Minutes, Totally Free iRobot Roomba Robot Vacuum A Deeper, Multi Room Clean Experience a deeper, multi room clean every day with the Roomba Vacuuming Robot Featuring the revolutionary AeroForce Cleaning System, Roomba delivers up to x the air power and requires less maintenance.

    About "Isaac Asimov"

      • Isaac Asimov

        Isaac Asimov was a Russian born, American author, a professor of biochemistry, and a highly successful writer, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.Professor Asimov is generally considered one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards He has works published in nine of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System lacking only an entry in the 100s category of Philosophy.Asimov is widely considered a master of the science fiction genre and, along with Robert A Heinlein and Arthur C Clarke, was considered one of the Big Three science fiction writers during his lifetime Asimov s most famous work is the Foundation Series his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series to create a unified future history for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson He penned numerous short stories, among them Nightfall , which in 1964 was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short science fiction story of all time, a title many still honor He also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as a great amount of nonfiction Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.Most of Asimov s popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms Examples include his Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, and Asimov s Chronology of Science and Discovery.Asimov was a long time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly he described some members of that organization as brain proud and aggressive about their IQs He took joy in being president of the American Humanist Association The asteroid 5020 Asimov, the magazine Asimov s Science Fiction, a Brooklyn, NY elementary school, and two different Isaac Asimov Awards are named in his honor Isaac Asimov 2007, November 29 In , The Free Encyclopedia Retrieved 21 50, November 29, 2007, from enpedia wiki Isaac_As

    1. A Brief History Of Robo Sapiens In Nine Sequences“Why WHY does something invariably go wrong with them?”“Because”, said Powell somberly, “we are accursed. Let’s go!”Asimov’s collection of short stories is a stunning document of humanity’s struggle to find balance in a world increasingly dominated by technological progress, but with the same social, political and emotional conflicts as always.At first glance, the different stories seem to show the growing sophistication of robot [...]


    2. This short story anthology has a lot of stories in common with Robot Visions which I read earlier. In fact there are only two ones in the former absent in the latter: Catch That Rabbit and Escape! I rated Robot Visions with 3 stars; this one is surprisingly (even to myself) rated higher. One of the reasons is that Visions included several essays; all of them aged much more than the stores themselves - and the stories did age. Another reason is related to the structure of I, Robot. It actually ha [...]


    3. Isaac Asimov's books were far from the normal trash novels you might buy for a 2 day read. Within anything he has written, he tries to spell out lessons in psychology.How would we react to Robots once they become free thinkers?How should we react to Robots when they become our slaves?Should we institute a whole new brand of slavery for the purpose of a "clean society"?What is sentient life?The I, Robot novel progresses through these questions, and questions like them, in scenarios rarely ever po [...]


    4. "If one and a half chickens lay one and a half eggs in one and a half days, how many eggs will nine chickens lays in nine days?"This is incredible, the best of all science fiction I have read yet. As Fredrick Pohl put it:“A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam.” Asimov not only does that - and he goes one step further, he proposes a solution for the metaphorical traffic jam - in this case ethical issues related to AI, in form of his popu [...]


    5. (3.75?)I thought this book would be similar to the movie but no, not at all (or barely!).There are 9 short stories told and, although I enjoy all of them, I much preferred the last couple ones.


    6. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this, and I ended up being pleasantly surprised. It's a series of short stories revolving around Susan Calvin, a robopsychologist with the company U.S. Robots. The stories show the progression of robots (from ones that can't even talk to the machines that govern how the planet operates) and the relationship humans have with them.I really enjoyed the overall arc and how it was presented. I also really dug how most of the stories were puzzles abo [...]


    7. Though I do love Asimov's writing, he was most certainly a product of his times. (Translate - horrifically sexist.) The one female character who is in nearly all these stories is Dr. Susan Calvin. Practically every time she shows up, the author felt it necessary to comment on her appearance. When young, she was "plain." As she ages, she becomes "plain" and "middle-aged." The male characters looks are not commented on other than the mention that one is bald, and one has red hair. And though there [...]


    8. There is a method to the madness!The other day when my spiffing new copy of the Foundation series arrived on my doorstep, faithfully delivered by the only delivery guy in our part of the town and I had to turn to them to have my fix of the written word ever since the only bookstore in the town was closed down (or rather was converted into a boutique), my dear friend, who is by the way one of those guys who has their rooms covered in comic graffiti and a bat signal alarm clock that he is still f [...]


    9. ❝ Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.❞------------- Isaac Asimov--------------This collection of concept-driven stories featuring robots were some of the first stories written by Science fiction god, Isaac Asimov. These stories also introduce the "Three laws of robotics" which became a milestone in science fiction history. Pure logic based problem-solving and the genuine awe-inspiring imagination; That's [...]


    10. In 1989 I drove to Indianapolis to meet Eric, a collector of rare films, ostensibly to see his 16-millimeter print of the elusive 1926 W.C. Fields movie, So's Your Old Man, of which he claimed there were only a half dozen extant copies. We also screened prints of the Lon Chaney Sr. silent, He Who Gets Slapped and the silent German mountain film classic, The White Hell of Pitz Palu, both of which, at the time, were very difficult to see but which have since been issued on DVD. For good measure, h [...]


    11. About a week ago, I stayed up until 4 a.m to read this book. IT WAS SO WORTH IT! When you are a teenager and you read your way into the morning, you know it is a good book. When you are an adult who doesn't function well with a few hours of sleep and you still do that, then you know it is a great book. Fair enough? Or is it just me? I found it easier to function with less sleep when I was younger. Not that I feel old. YET.I, Robot is written as a serious of stories featuring a group of individua [...]


    12. This is the original "I, Robot" (not the movie of the same name) is excellent & absolutely a classic. It set the tone & often the ground rules for almost every artificial intelligence novel since it was written. The three laws of robotics first appeared in these stories. There are quite a few stories from humorous to touching to scary. Asimov had a pretty good idea that artificial intelligence was similar to fire - a dangerous servant. He proves it in these pages.This paperback version s [...]


    13. Isaac Asimov is less a writer of books than a puzzle creator. Each of the linked short stories in I, Robot poses a problem, like an SAT logic problem, and works its way to a (usually) clever answer. Foundation, his most famous work, is the same thing. Asimov has less in common with the other Big Three mid-20th century science fiction writers than he does with Encyclopedia Brown.But this is the book that invented the Three Laws of Robotics, which are so famous that basically no one has ever talke [...]


    14. Kanıt isimli robot öyküsüne bayıldım, kendimi bir an Philik K. Dick okuyormuş gibi hissettim. "Robotları severim. İnsanlardan daha çok severim. Eğer günün birinde kamu idareciliği yapabilecek bir robot üretilirse, bu işi herkesten iyi kıvırır. Robotbilim Kanunları'na göre insanlara zarar veremez, tiranlık yapamaz, rüşvet alamaz, önyargılı davranamaz, saçma sapan kararlar çıkartamaz. Ve dönemi başarıyla tamamladıktan sonra ölümsüz olsa bile görevini bsşkası [...]



    15. Asimov gives you quite a good idea of what's it like to have to debug an artificial intelligence, before there were any. Applause! The movie, however, is an abomination that should have been strangled at birth. They've made Susan Calvin sexy; you see her suggestively outlined through the semi-opaque glass of her shower cubicle. I can't continue with this review. I'm starting to get too emotional. Sorry. A few things are still sacred, you know?_____________________________________PS My real I, Ro [...]


    16. Fahrenheit 451 ve Kaplan Kaplan'dan sonra beni çok daha farklı açıdan büyüleyen bir bilimkurgu kitabı oldu Ben, Robot. Robotbilimin üç kanununun ne kadar zekice ifade edilmiş olması bir kenara, bu üç kanun üzerinden yazılan her hikayeyi keyifle okudum. Sanki polisiye romanlarında cinayeti çözümleyip katili bulmaya çalışırken yaşadığınız hissiyatın tıpatıp aynısını bu kitapta bulabiliyorsunuz çünkü her hikayede robotların o davranışı sergilemesinde sebebin [...]


    17. ***NO SPOILERS***(Full disclosure: Book abandoned on page 86 [out of 273 pages].)Under other circumstances, it might have been a beautiful sight. The stream of high-speed electrons impinging upon the energy beam fluoresced into ultraspicules of intense light. The beam stretched out into shrinking nothingness, a-glitter with dancing, shining motes.Unfortunately, this is how I, Robot goes (at least up until page 86). Asimov’s vision is an inventive and interesting one, but it isn’t geared to t [...]


    18. No soy un asiduo lector de Ciencia Ficción (con excepción de los libros de Ray Bradbury, a quien admiro profundamente), pero reconozco la maestría de Isaac Asimov de acuñar las Tres Leyes de la Robótica, algo así como las tablas de Moisés que rigen la vida del futuro entre robots y seres humanos y que seguramente deben se necesarias para aquellos autores que quieran escribir libros sobre robots. Este libro reúne nueve cuentos unidos entre sí por una conversación o entrevista (nunca que [...]


    19. Perfect. We don't have a lot of sci-fi classics that are both deep and page turner, but Asimov does the fiction so incredibly great making the science so interesting and easy to read. I, robot has a lot of psicology regarding men and technology, and specially this days, it is so disturbing understand the fact that Asimov wasn't playing fun. We are becoming codependent to machines. A perfect read for anyone who wants to read a classic of the genre.¡TE AMO ROBBIE! (por si estaban con el pendiente [...]


    20. Classic set of short stories in which Asimov establishes his three laws of robotics which govern the behaviour of his robots and then plays with the idea. Still entertaining.The scope is far ranging - space colonisation, artificial intelligence, faster than light travel, one world government and resistance to the same (and to artificial intelligence which provides a kind of ultimate technocratic authority) relationships (in every story) between people and robots, particularly if there are or are [...]


    21. Mik-kem-mel. Son zamanlarda okuduğum en iyi bilim kurgulardan biri. Yirminci yüzyılın ortasında yazılmış olmasına rağmen günümüzde de geçerli sorular soruyor, doğru noktalara parmak basıyor. Adeta insanlığın -hala ulaşılamamış- geleceğinden bir kesite ayna tutuyor. Robot denince dümdüz işte robotlar ayaklanıyor insanları kesiyorlar gibi bir şey gelmesin aklınıza. Robotların robot olmanın gerektirdikleri yüzünden yaşadıkları ve insanların onları anlamaya [...]


    22. Bir solukta okudum, muhteşem bir kitaptı. Ben, Robot, aslında Asimovun yazdığı robot temalı bir çok küçük hikayenin akıllıca bir araya getirilerek romanlaşması. Birbiriyle doğrudan bağları olmayan hikayeler çarpıcı, Asimov'un kurguladığı dünya, insanlık ve bilimsel yapı zamanının çok ama çok ötesinde. Bu hikayeleri yazdığı dönemde böyle günümüze paralel şeyler hayal etmesi cidden akıl almaz. Hayal gücüne, yaratıcı bilimsel kurgularına hayran kaldım [...]


    23. A beautiful collection of interrelated robot short stories, introducing and debugging the "Three Laws of Robotics".Robbie - about a little girl and her robot friend and the Frankenstein complex regarding robots.Runaround (Fuga în cerc) - about a mission for Gregory Powell and Mike Donovan (a team of engineers working at U.S. Robots) at the Mercury mines, involving a robot that, instead of extracting selenium from the mines, like it was ordered to, just runs around in a big circle, acting like a [...]


    24. 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.Oh, to think how many hours of reading pleasure Asimov has provided by judicious interplay of the above three laws! I never tire of reading these clever intellectual puzzles. [...]


    25. Boşuna klasik olmadı Asimov, güzel bir bilimkurgu, zihni zorlayan sorular, akıcı bir üslup, düzgün bir çeviri. Bitmesin diye dua ettim :)


    26. Pocetak jednog dugog i verujem prezanimljivog putovanja. Ja Robot je definitivno jedno od fudamentalnih dela pionirske Naucne fantastike. Asimov je tako dobar pisac i mislilac da je prosto uzivanje citati ga. Elem evo mape a ja sam na samom pocetku:Internal story chronological orderThis is the order in which the story happens: from the early days of robotics on Earth, through the Spacer period, on to the Galactic Empire, then the decay and collapse of the Empire, accompanied by the rise of the F [...]


    27. A classic of science fiction and one I've been meaning to read for a while. I didn't realise until recently that these are a collection of short stories, but they work well as a whole. Each story considers a different problem and solution to having robot intelligence that goes wrong and it deals with each scenario in a fun but thought provoking way. I had to keep reminding myself of how long ago this was written and reflect on how little has changed in our attitudes and basic fears of artificial [...]


    28. Birth of the Machine14 April 2012 This is a collection of short stories about the development of robots. Well, since robots of this caliber have yet to be developed, it is obvious that it is little more than science-fiction, however Isaac Asimov can be said to have developed a form of speculative science-fiction where he attempts to look into the future from a logical and scientific point of view. He was not the first, that honour belongs to Jules Verne, however he does take his style of writing [...]


    29. 3½ stars, rounded up for the scope of Asimov's AIInteresting ideas and conception of robotics conveyed in a series of short stories. I could read about Asimov's robotics all day. His scope of cultural changes (ie revolution), however, is lacking in comparison. The year 2007 in the book does not seem like actual 2007 at all, same goes for 2015, and same for 2035 I'd imagine. The cultural climate feels more like the 1950s with the addition of accelerated scientific advancement than the world we'r [...]
