Don't forget 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 the orders given 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.

(I gotta read "I, Robot" again. Loved it as a kid)
Gotta love the three laws.

I love the movie, but haven't read the book yet. I've heard they're very different; is that true?

I don't think we should make our robots and AIs too intelligent. Just enough to take out the trash, or fix the plumbing, or other menial jobs like that.
