Robotics Law One: "Do no harm to people or property." Intelligent machines have a problem: What’s harm? Dr. Maynard Little thinks he may have solved it. He designs the ultimate... More > robotic testing machine for his company’s products. It reads English product specifications, builds test suites from them, and finally speaks English well enough so people don't laugh or misunderstand. But then they order it around. To do no harm it tests people to find out whom it can trust about what. Things get dicey. The turning point is Sylvia Robinson’s TV round-table discussion where the machine upsets everyone except perhaps the French. Dr. Little—under pressure from Chairman Bozworth to make money with it—takes steps to make the machine more marketable and less controversial. These efforts succeed except that Doc hadn't tested his fix, which later creates new problems. And other interests want to exploit or control—or steal—the TM tech. So why does Doc Little wake up in a prison that looks like a sitting room?< Less

Okay, question: Have any of your primal instincts ever kicked in? Your palms start to sweat, your muscles start to tense, maybe a little shortness of breath, or, the most conscious, the hair on the back of your neck start to stand. I figured you had.
