    You know exactly what you are going to get from an Isaac Asimov science fiction story a locked room mystery The locked room mystery was to Asimov what the chess puzzle was to Nabokov, fortunately the two never collaborated to write a locked room chess puzzle mystery with robots and sexually active children.Asimov s robot stories are particularly devilish, as Asimov reasonably imagines that in order to avoid powerful mechanical beings running rampage that they would be programmed with standing orders to protect people, I write no Golem stories you can imagine him saying, arms folded across his chest Instead using his own three laws of robotics he makes certain scenarios in his world impossible, in a typical story, he explains the laws, tells you that an impossible thing has happened and then invites you to sit back and watch how he makes this possible literary Houdinism The collection I, Robot is the best set of his robot stories this collection The Rest of the Robots are, as the title suggests, the also runs The book includes a story with a cold war like setting Lets get together and a Susan Colvin story on the Moon base view spoiler or a moon base, perhaps I ought not be narrow minded about the future moon in Asimov s imagination hide spoiler

    I frankly don t have the capability to review this book or any of Asimov s book any further I am tired of finding newer adjectives that convey my superlative admiration for the thoughts and works of Asimov I was carrying on the task of typing out appreciative sentences regarding the plot, characters and ideas so far No i give up There are no words to express Asimov s ingenuity or parallels for comparison Isaac Asimov is simply THE BEST.

    I enjoyed The Rest of the Robots Robot, 0.2 much than I enjoyed I, Robot.I found parallels to the movie AI in this novel in the form of the robot Tony A pleasure bot in the making, that one is.I found the short story about Jupiter and the Jovians to be quirky and funny and really enjoyed reading it.I also very much enjoyed the device used to hold the entire set of short stories together I learned things I never knew about Mary Shelley and Isaac Asimov, and it enabled me to process these stories on a much deeper level than before.

    More Stories About the Mechanical Men21 February 2019 For those who are interested, I have finally located that list which suggests the order that one should read all of Asimov s books and short stories, or at least the books that deal with the robot and the empire stories namely because Asimov decided that he would actually connect the two universes when he returned to writing fiction later on in his life Mind you, there are a few inconsistencies, but that is not all that surprising considering this was never his original intention back in the days when he was simply writing short stories to appear in magazines and fund his university degree Actually, talking about inconsistencies, there is one story in this collection that probably shouldn t be included in that list which it isn t , that being Victory Unintentional, since it deals with robots making first contact with a race of beings who live on the planet Jupiter The reason I say that is because in the Robot Empire universe it turns out that the only sentient beings are the humans, and they all came from one planet Earth Mind you, the chronological order does have the problem of actually revealing a little too much and spoiling some of the later books in the series, namely because we don t actually to find out what happened to Earth until Robots and Empire I believe it has been a while since I read that one Like I, Robot, this is a collection of stories dealing with robots, though it differs from I, Robot, where the stories were linked by an interview with famed robot psychologist Susan Calvin In this book, which as Asimov points out, contains the remaining stories that weren t included in the first book, though as it turns out, there are actually quite a lot robot stories than are included here and even in the Complete Robot The story isn t linked in the same what that the first book is linked, but rather has Asimov commenting on each of his stories beforehand Asimov opens the book by pointing out that the word robot came about in the 1920 s when it was coined by an author from Czechia, Karel Capek in his story Rosum s Universal Robots He also mentions that it goes back even further than that, to the time of the Ancient Greeks In the Illiad, we encounter the smith god Hephaestus who has two assistants that he created himself I also think about the Prague golem, a story from Czechia Actually, he opens by talking about Mary Shelly, who some have suggested kicked off the whole science fiction genre with her story on Frankenstein This is what gets Asimov to an extent, because by the time he started writing, the only stories that appeared to be floating around were stories that were, well, basically like the Terminator robot goes bad and starts killing humanity, or some crazy and evil scientist tries to take over the world with his latest invention I can sort of see why Asimov was a little put off by that, considering that he was a scientist himself So, what he decided to do was write a series of stories that went as far away from that trope as possible, and the result is what we have today You can see Asimov s scientific influences in these stories though, because many of them are actually thought experiments based on how robots would react in certain situations, and even with the three laws hard wired into them, the problems that would be faced Not surprisingly, through out the stories, there is always this hesitation by the people of Earth towards robots, to the point that they are pretty much banned on Earth Also of interest is how robots respond to commands, and how an inexperienced users could cause a robot to malfunction Another theme is how robots aren t meant to replace humans, but to compliment them Not surprisingly, they end up being used mostly off world, especially for mining As we have since discovered, space is a pretty hostile environment, and the lack of breathable atmosphere is probably the least of our concerns namely because we can quite easily solve that problem For instance, Asimov suggests that the major difference between robots and humans is that we need to program robots they basically can t think for themselves In fact, they are incapable of having epiphanies, or solving problems based entirely on hunches something that we humans are than capable of doing Yet the biggest concern is that robots pretty much take away unskilled labour we are seeing that happen and Sure, factories are operated by robots, though as we have discovered, it is still cheaper to place factories in developing countries than to build a fully automated plant In fact, even some customer service roles are being replaced by robots, though I have to admit that I would much rather be served by a real human being than by a cold, emotionless machine.

    As the title says i.e The rest , this book contains short stories related to robots that couldn t fit into I Robot I was initially somewhat reticent about the quality of the stories the title made me think they d be like discarded stuff that someone thought they could monetize.Perhaps it was the stories in a story scenario which ended up changing my mind about these short stories The book reads sort of like an interview where the author talks about his work, and inspiration for it, only instead of mere snippets we get the entire story Despite the fact that the book was published 50 years ago, there is barely anything that reads dated about it Actually, I m not even sure I could pinpoint something that wouldn t seem contemporary.The book starts out with a little back story on Mary Shelley and her novel Frankenstein, whose main idea is then skillfully inserted into Asimov s short stories about robots After all, a robot is in a manner also a type of monster, because a lot people don t understand it.Once again, we get a lot of incredibly realistic stories about robots, their working mechanisms and the 3 Laws which govern their existence Reading about Dr Calvin s work is just basic algorithm analysis, which is right up my professional alley.I loved all these stories, but my absolute favorite must ve been the one about the woman asked to beta test a butler robot, which was slated for mass production You see, Peter, machines can t fall in love, but even when it s hopeless and horrifying women can.That excerpt really stayed with me, and in an odd sort of way I can relate to it I don t build robots myself, but I have found myself getting overly attached to software that I ve developed.I loved this book for all its geekyness and its actuality Others may, perhaps, find it dull or wouldn t get the point If you like playing with logical puzzles, and if you like mind stimulating games like light Maths , this is just the bedtime book for you review of book 0.1 I, Robotreview of book 1 The Caves of Steelreview of book 2 The Naked Sunreview of book 3 The Robots of Dawnreview of book 4 Robots and Empire

    Leuk tussendoortje SF die ondertussen enorm gedateerd is de meeste verhalen werden in de jaren 1950 geschreven roken is nog schering en inslag, computers worden nog met ponskaarten geprogrammeerd, vrouwen komen nauwelijks aan bod behalve dr Susan Calvin, die als een koel beredeneerde wetenschapper wordt afgeschilderd en robots zijn vandaag de dag ondertussen overal in alle vormen behalve misschien de humano de versies ingeburgerd.Maar het leest wel vlot, de taal is nog niet oubollig en de verhalen zijn goed gestructureerd opgebouwd waardoor ik wel ge nteresseerd bleef tot het einde.
