    Agreed. A robot in the given vision, would be able to intervene and stop the human interaction without necessarily harming them.

    Not necessarily, but potentially. The robot would be obligated to try under the First Law. However, if it was not successful, the positronic brain could be damaged, maybe even ruined beyond repair, depending on the extent of the injuries caused by the robots actions. It would also depend on the degree to which the robot's actions caused the damage, versus what the robot did not participate in. It could take a robopsychologist (e.g., Susan Calvin) to straighten it out.

    However, if a robot is self-aware isn't it alive?

    If that's true you can't implement those rules on it.

    That is essentially slavery.

    Is he joking?

    Trying to make a point?

    The word “God” generally (not always) means the creator of humanity, and even when it doesn’t it always means a supernatural (external to the laws of nature) being.

    You can’t say something is a God just because you like and admire it. The word means supernatural. Not of this world.

    This is like saying “I’ve decided to give birth to my mother”. It’s just simply not possible.

    On the other hand, Zaphod Beeblebrox's father was Zaphod Beeblebrox the Second, grandfather as the Third, and so forth. Apparently, there was an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine.

    Why would AI be bound by human laws? Computers found to be conversing with each other in their own language.

    Artifical Intelligence at Facebook started conversing in their own "new" language

    It would, I suppose, depend on their programming and how they are built.
