Asimov's Laws Don't Work
An article in the Economist draws attention to the fact that Asimov's Laws of Robotics won't be much use. One notable thing that Asimove didn't take account of is the uses people would put them to - and his laws were full of holes anyway, as many of his stories point out.
This is giving rise to some thinking on my part about robots and AIs for Starbound - I'm fairly sure I want them in, but they have to be taken proper account of. And of course I don't want them to take over entirely.
