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.

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.

So why does Doc Little wake up in a prison that looks like a sitting room?< Less
