    Really Asimov is a great one, as Arthur C Clarke, Van Vogt or Conwainder Smith.

    You ought to try Ray Bradbury as well, The Martian Chronicles is a classic.

    I find it amazing just how many writers have used this for the basis of their own Novels - Azimov has set a standard that others follow.

    Actually I had bad feelings about AI, as its aim to work like a human brain, so it is not only about modernization. It is the same philosofical like the human genetics modification, the difference the genetics achived more in these days...

    Cheetah as real Christian, you should ban AI efforts...

    Yup...and I tend to avoid these philosophy classes. I was forced to take one as one of required courses for graduation, and luckily I passed it, got a B+.

    Too many philosophical questions tend to make my head explode.

    No, I'm not confused, it is just an interesting observation.

    Why do you think I am confused?

    Sure! And where would this question come from? That's right, the programming code.

    Anyway, I think the best bet would be to integrate biochemistry into robotic technology. The cells themselves can hold a lot of information, thousands of times more than a single hard drive could contain.

    With advances in nanotechnology, this could also lead to new generations of more "intelligent" robots. But would this put the robots on par with human intelligence, somehow I doubt this, but who knows...

    we need quantumn computers first...

    ...then a perpetual motion engine

    Current robotic technology isn't really applicable because it truly is governed by the restrictions of coding that you were describing. There has to be a practical leap in self learning computers before we will see Asimovs robots, and that is not going to happen in the near future.
