Without new anti-robot laws, humanity is doomed, MPs told

"Robots will destroy humanity unless we write new laws to control them, a Parliamentary committee has been told."

I thought Isaac Asimov had already done that?

Don't be silly, you can't expect the British government to adopt a set of rules developed by a foreign Sci-Fi Author, can you?

Any rules which the government is prepared to sign off will have to be re-imagineered by a highly paid consultancy group, and must embrace diversity and allow for future expansion.

Asimov's laws are far too prescriptive and narrow in scope...
