The Three Laws of Robotics:
A robot may not injure a human being nor, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders of a human being, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect itself, except where such protection would conflict with the First or Second Law.
