Turing Test
: If a person can have a
conversation with a hidden computer
and not be able to determine if it a

to be intelligent.

What is Robotics
?

Robot Institute of America:

Robot is a reprogrammable, multifunctional
manipulator designed
to move material, parts, tools, or
specialized devices
through variable programmed
motions for
the performance
of a variety of tasks.

Formulated by Russian/American writer Isaac Asimov:

1. A robot may not harm 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
protectiondoes

not conflict with the First or Second Law.

The three laws of robotics

Uses of robots:


household robots

• service robots


robots in dangerous environments

• medical robotics
