The first law of robotics is known to all science fiction fans: a robot can never harm a human being, ever. In the words of Asimov: "a robot cannot harm a human being nor can he allow a human being to receive harm due to his lack of intervention ”.
This in novels. In reality, however, it seems that it was created in California the first robot that can "consciously decide" to harm the man who created it.
The robot in question was created by robotics expert and artist Alexander Reben of Berkeley's Stochastic Labs, after noticing that many people around the world are afraid robots and artificial intelligence. According to the inventor, this happens because machines can harm us, or even steal our jobs.
“No one has ever built a robot intentionally made to harm someone“Explains Reben. “I wanted to make a robot capable of doing this really exist. This is important: bring it from the realm of imagined experiments to reality, because once something exists you owe it to yourself compare. It becomes urgent, you cannot simply pontificate about it ”.
The robot created is ironically called "First Law"(" First Law "), with a reference to the aforementioned laws of Asimov's robotics. The robot can “decide” whether or not to cause a small cut to the person approaching it. In reality, the choice is absolutely random. Provocation, art, useless act? To you the choice.
