I, Doctor, er, Robot

Now this is a funny post (at least I think its funny).

I wrote an article on TeleSurgery back in 2006 and it touch covered a fair bit on Robotic Surgery (well, that’s an important component of TeleSurgery) and this particular article looks at how well are medical robots complying with the Three Laws of Robotics (as codified by the late sci-fi author and Health Blog hero Isaac Asimov) which in case you don’t know, are;

  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 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.

Details of the funny articles can be read here. Enjoy 🙂
