作者简介:

作者:艾萨克·阿西莫夫(1920-1992)

俄裔美籍作家,被全世界的读者誉为“神一样的人”;美国政府授予他“国家的资源与自然的奇迹”这个独一无二的称号,以表彰他在“拓展人类想象力”上做出的杰出贡献。

阿西莫夫是一个全知全能的作家,其著作几乎覆盖人类生活的一切方面,上天下海、古往今来、 从恐龙到亚原子到全宇宙无所不包,从通俗小说到罗马帝国史,从科普读物到远东千年历史,从圣经指南,到科学指南,到两性生活指南,每一部著作都朴实、严谨而又充满幽默风趣的格调,为了尽情发挥自己诙谐搞笑的天赋,他甚至还写过一本《笑话集》。

到了晚年,他开始变得“好色”,出版了一系列两性话题的“黄书”。

他提出的“机器人学三定律”是当代机器人研究的基本法则,他预言了今天的生物科技,预言了互联网时代的数字图书馆,预言了人类将进行太空殖民。

终其一生,阿西莫夫最引以为豪的则是:《银河帝国》系列小说。

The three laws of Robotics:

1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm

2) A robot must obey orders givein to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot , Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.

Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov's trademark.
