Master of scifi Isaac Asimov on stage in Pezinok

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Liar is a science fiction short story by American writer Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) which first appeared in a collection of sci-fi stories in 1941.
