This week we’re talking about one of the foundational authors of science fiction: Isaac Asimov. We dive into his series, his academic career and ultimately the three laws of robotics and how they set the stage for not only sci-fi but for robot ethics in the real world as well.  And we do it all with the help of our producer and sr. editor of But Why Tho?. Jason! If you’re unfamiliar with him, Isaac Asimov was an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. But, he was also known for his works of science fiction. He wrote or edited more than 500 books and through hard science fiction crafted the way we talk about robots not just in fiction, but how we think about ethics in the real world. Having coined the phrase robotics, it’s safe to say he’s the father of the robot and shaped how we view them.
