In 1920, Karel Čapek's science fiction play R.U.R. introduced the term "robot" to the world. In this story, robots—originally created to serve humans—eventually rebel, a narrative that has captivated science fiction enthusiasts for decades. This play laid the foundation for countless robot uprising narratives in the years to come, a dramatic theme that persists to this day in books, films, and T.V. shows like I, RobotBladerunner, and Westworld. For every friendly and helpful robot like Data or WALL-E, there is a ruthless automaton like the Terminator, Ultron from The Avengers, the Daleks from Doctor Who, or Ava from Ex Machina.

Isaac Asimov, a prolific science-fiction writer, developed the famous Three Laws of Robotics. These laws, which first appeared in his short story "Runaround" (1942), have not only shaped the narrative of sci-fi literature but also sparked significant discussions in the realm of technology, including robotics and artificial intelligence. 

The laws are as follows: 

1) A robot may not injure a human being or allow harm through inaction. 

2) A robot must obey human orders, except when they conflict with the First Law. 

3) A robot must protect its own existence, provided it doesn't violate the First or Second Law

Some robots need to brush up on their Asimov if popular depictions are any guide. This brings us to this fanciful painting by David Galchutt, where we see three colossal robots turning their wrath upon their little green overlords, a scene that underscores the enduring relevance of Asimov's laws in shaping our perception of robots and AI.

But that's just Science Fiction...right?
