I, Robot by Alex Proyas
«Asimov... making machines an example of how the world could be bettered through the mastery of technology. ..The robot was artificial intelligence in a man's shape, a foil for asking what it means to be human and what rules should govern us.
The idea that we can take our social interactions and code them with an Asimovian algorithm ("allow no harm, obey all orders, protect yourself") is at odds with the messy, unpredictable world.
This need for people to behave in a predictable, rational, measurable way recalls Mr. Spock's autistic inability to understand human emotion without counting dimples to discern happiness or frown lines to identify sorrow.»
