1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.


2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.


3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

As long as they are required to be plugged in to a wall socket I ain't to worried. If my computer tries to kill me I will unplug it.

Moreover, ASI is unlikely to exterminate us in a bout of Terminator-esque malevolence, but simply as a byproduct of its very existence. Computers, like humans, need energy and in a competition for resources, ASI would no more seek to preserve our access to vital resources then we worry about where an ant's next meal will come from.
The Matrix was right...we are their batteries

Right now were at at the stage where we ourselves are robots in a way. People cannot function without a mobile device anymore. Then you have google working on brain chips for humans to think with. The world in 50 years will truly be a scary place, if it last that long.
